Advice:

Don’t make the number one mistake:

The number one advice I can give you is…

“DON’T PRICE YOURSELF OUT OF A JOB”.

Nannies often overly focus on how much other people are being paid or how much they have been paid in the past.

When deciding on your rate, please consider the following:

1. The reality is that not every family can afford to pay the same amount. Wanting a raise from a new family is not always feasible.

2. Each position is unique, and requirements vary greatly. Some families will only want your help with child-related activities; others might request additional help with household errands and chores.

3. Answer this question: Would you rather work for a family you love, in an environment you enjoy, and make a reasonable salary OR would you rather earn a higher rate at a job you hate? We at The Nanny Smith strive to take on ONLY families that we ourselves would want to work for, so if your preference is the latter, then we might not be the right agency for you.

4. We will negotiate your salary, vacation time, paid holidays, and general paid time off. Sometimes if you ask for a less affordable weekly salary, the family is less inclined to offer a generous benefits package.

“Through a series of questions that identified my style as a nanny as well the preferences of the household I work for today, I was matched with a wonderful family... all thanks to this agency! I am very thankful to have met Shanotte who really cares about the families looking for nannies as well as the nannies looking for a family! She is very sweet and determined to find the best fit on both ends! I 100% recommend this company for families seeking a nanny and for nannies looking to broaden their experience by being placed with a lovely family!”
