So, without delay, here are 3 important things employers need to remember to mention to nanny candidates.
- Our house is being heavily renovated. You can't see the house number, but we are the joint with the huge construction dumpster in the front driveway.
- You know we said we had 2 kids under 2? Well, we forgot to mention their 13-year-old half-sibling who lives with us 75% of the time. But you won't have to do anything for him. No, really!
- We really want a nanny who speaks spanish. Did we mention that?
And, just for any employers who say they once worked as a nanny, here's a tip. Tell us all the details over the phone when we ask. Don't wait until we are face to face to tell us how you were a nanny at the age of 12. Because any career nanny will find it hard to not snigger at you when you say that, and we can cover the sniggering with a cough much better over the phone than in person.
So I go forth tomorrow to 2 other interviews. Wonder what new craziness they will bring into my life?
