Interviewing can be tricky, especially when you let nerves get in the way even though you know you’re amazing at our jobs! So here, you’ve compiled a handy guide on how you can ensure the best first impression and snap up your dream job amongst other candidates who haven’t stumbled across these #interviewhacks.
As a nanny or governess your needs and requirements being met are very important, however, if you are at an interview and all your initial questions surround your own needs, it implies your focus is less about the children and more about yourself. Such questions can include, negotiating salary, living conditions, hours, days off, etc. In most cases, for the right candidate, some of these things are up for discussion. However, you must be the right candidate first.
Calling out all nannies, governesses, tutors, maternity nurses alike, in this day and age online presence is everything! Try to be mindful of this when posting things online that may be detrimental or that could be taken badly by a potential employer that doesn’t reflect your true personality.
Hope you enjoyed the interview tips and found them helpful. Our nanny agency wishes you the best of luck in being successful in your next role!
