When a family posts a job, it's up to the family to manage their job posting and applicants. Once they hire a caregiver, they can either close their job posting so it's no longer visible on the site or let the job posting expire on its own.
You are more than welcome to submit an application, even if you're unsure the job is still available. It certainly won't hurt to show your interest!
Keep in mind, since Sittercity is an online meeting platform where families independently post their jobs, we cannot confirm whether a position has been filled and if a job is still available.
We understand this can be frustrating at times, and we strive to continue improving the job search experience for caregivers.
