What should I include on a Nanny Resume?


Have you ever wondered “What should I include on a Nanny Resume”?  Do you need a little help creating a top-notch Nanny resume to get noticed by future employers or even a Household Staffing Agency?  Did you know that an employer or Placement Coordinator (recruiter) may not read your entire resume, so you need to make sure that you create a really good one that grabs their attention.

What should I include on my Nanny resume in order to land a great job?

One of the very first statements that you should include on your Nanny resume should be a summary (objective) at the beginning of the page (after your name, address and phone number of course). The summary should consist of a few quick and strong statements of your work experiences, achievements, and summary of skills at the beginning of your resume.

  1. Name, address, phone number and email address
  2. Start off with your summary (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.
  3. List of your qualifications
  4. Professional experience
  5. 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.)
  6. Education
  7. Hobbies

What should I include on a Nanny Resume – Tips:

  1. 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.
  2. Make sure your resume and cover letter are relevant to the position you are seeking out.
  3. Describe your BACKGROUND (skills, education and experience) using household verbiage.  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.
