How to Find Babysitting Jobs

By

If your child has decided that a babysitting job is the perfect match, it's time to find a family to babysit for. Here are some helpful resources to help your child find a babysitting job.

1. Indeed Job Search Engine

The Indeed job search engine is the most comprehensive job search engine on the web.

2. Take an Infant CPR Course

If you enroll as a babysitter in an infant CPR course, you'll probably be in a class full of new parents. Not only will you learn an important safety lesson for babysitting, but you'll be able to make contacts, too. At the breaks, take the time to introduce yourself and hand out your contact information to the parents. The parents will know you are responsible and may call you in the future to watch their children.

3. Use Local Babysitter Referral Programs

Many areas have a babysitter referral program. The babysitters are screened by the owners and then referred to families. The best part is that the service is usually free for babysitters! Check with your local chamber of commerce to see if there is a babysitter referral program in your area.

4. Ask for Referrals

If you already have a couple babysitting jobs, ask the parents to refer you to their friends. One of the best ways to land a job is by word of mouth.
