Why work for us?

Work should be the place you want to go!

Work should be a place you want to go!
Finding a job in this economy can be hard for anyone. But becoming a nanny isn't about finding a job, it's about finding the right fit in the right home- a place where you will be happy every day. No one decides to become a nanny without having a love for children.  Like a parent, you will know days that are difficult and days that are glorious. But you will also experience the deep satisfaction of having played a vital role in helping a young person become all they are meant to be!

Why work, when you can inspire children of the next generation to be the best people they can be?  We here at The Nanny Smith will help you find the right fit.

The Nanny Professional Development Seminar will help you to identify and develop your unique skills and abilities and learn how to effectively market yourself to find the best nanny position possible.  We will help you with revising and building your resume and/or profile.  We will review where and how to apply for jobs, including instructions on how to use the latest online job search resources.  We can help you figure out what you might be doing wrong.  We will discuss interview skills and how to answer those “hypothetical situation” questions!  Whether you are new to the field or a mature nanny looking to re-enter the field, we will help you create a personal Game Plan!
