Times have changed!
Have you heard about Jobs for the Future? JFF focus on preparing the current workforce, providing them access to training that would allow them to remain relevant in this ever change world. Now, what does that mean to nannies?
I can go on and on about it but that's a topic for another day :) For now, I will mainly say that most of us have been finding jobs online and LinkedIn gives us the oportunity to break free from private and exclusive childcare platforms (such as care dot com, sittercity, etc) to find these jobs.
We don't always pay attention to our professional image on social media and underestimate the power it has while going through a job search. LinkedIn specifically, gives you the freedom to be in charge of the information you share with prospective families, allows you to collect recommendations from past employers as well as colleagues, in addition to give you a professional platform where you can also write articles and share your expertise with the world!
You *must* bring your own laptop. Unfortunately we cannot provide computers for individual use. Space is limited to please rsvp early!
