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.
- Name, address, phone number and email address
- 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.
- 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.)
What should I include on a 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 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.
