Nanny Resume

in Resume Examples and Samples

A good Nanny Resume is essential in helping you find a great job working with children. A job as live-out nanny usually consists of working in the home with children during the hours that parents are unable to be there. Some nannies may even be able to find jobs as live-in nannies close to their college campus if they are students. A live-in nanny would be offered a room in the home they are working in and would eat meals with the family. The nanny resume should include your qualifications, prior nanny experiences that highlight any work you have done with children and your interests or hobbies. A nanny resume should include any certifications that you have, such as CPR certification. Certifications are something that may be important to some parents looking for a nanny, since young children can be susceptible to choking and other accidents.

The Nanny Resume examples above list your contact information first so that anyone wishing to interview you will know how to reach you. Next, your qualifications should be listed as an attention-grabber, as this is what makes you stand out from other applicants. Your work experience should be listed from most recent first, down to the very first nanny experience you had. The reason it is listed in this order is to showcase the most recent job experience first, which likely has far more experience which you would have gained since your first nanny experience. Last, you will want to list your Interests or Hobbies. This gives the person reading your resume a feeling that they are already getting to know you on a personal level.
