Nanny Cover Letter:
A Nanny cover letter or introductory letter is always a GOOD idea to include when applying for a nanny job with Georgia’s Dream Nannies, Inc. A nanny cover letter includes a brief description about yourself that the client would not otherwise know about you from reading your Nanny resume. A nanny cover letter is just 1 – 4 paragraph long! Your Nanny cover letter should highlight the reasons why the family should pick YOU over someone else!
What Should I include On A Nanny Resume?
ALWAYS CHECK FOR GRAMMAR MISTAKES!!!!!
In This Order:
- Name, address, phone number and email address
- Start off with your objective or brief summary about yourself (Yes, you read it right – write a short blurb about yourself here). This is a household employment position and more than likely moms will be the ones reading your resume. You should write a brief objective or summary about what you are seeking in a position, but keep short, sweet and as broad as possible. In other words, you could say something like this “I am seeking a full-time or part-time nanny position where I can utilize my Early Childhood degree, 5-years of nanny experience, French-speaking background……and so on” …….You get the point.
- List of your qualifications
- Professional experience
- If you do not have a lot of “paid” nanny experience, then please list ALL work-places where you have volunteered to work with children (babysitting, camps, church, intern childcare places, school, etc.)
Nanny Resume Tips:
- Display CONFIDENCE throughout your resume and cover letter that you can get the job done with a family even if you are new to the industry.
- Make sure your resume and cover letter are relevant to the position you are seeking out.
- Describe your BACKGROUND (skills, education and experience) using household verbage. In other words, please don’t write a resume or cover letter that makes you look like a fabulous customer service personnel and not a nanny.
