Where Can I Find Babysitting Jobs?
If you are wondering where you can find work as a babysitter, you may not have to look far. Believe it or not, there are a lot of opportunities for you to find work. You just have to know where to look (i.e. where the kids are!)
Libraries. Local libraries have their pulse on what's happening around town. They are usually the center for community events, parades, and other activities. Many libraries offer story hours, sing-a-longs, and other family-friendly fun. Some libraries have bulletin boards where you can post flyers or business cards. Always check with the librarian and ask if it's okay to post a flyer so families can contact you if they need a sitter.
Churches or religious organizations. If you belong to a local church or religious organization, let families know that you are interested in babysitting. Families may find it reassuring to hire someone who shares the same values.
Preschools and after-school programs. Even though many families opt to enroll their children in after-school programs, they may still need a sitter for Saturday night. See if after-school programs in your town keep a list of babysitters' information on file for families in need and get your name on that list!
Social networks. You know all those Facebook friends you have? Have them help you find babysitting jobs. A simple post on your Facebook page helps spread the word that you are looking for work. Join Twitter, LinkedIn, and other social networking sites. Cast a wide net-you'll be more likely to find work if you do!
Job sites. Websites like Care.com are a great place to find babysitting jobs. People join Care.com to connect with caregivers and find the help they need for their family. Odds are good that you will find a babysitting job, especially on a site where people are searching for someone like you!
