Care.com, has opened doors for me for many years. The parents and children I have cared for have been amazing wealth of information and knowledge. I look forward to meeting many more and sharing what I do best.

I am often passed over because of my age. I have 3 children, ages 10,7 and 5. I applied to a position to care for 8 month old twins and got told that I don't have the experience they were looking for. Wow, really?

I think the resume format could be helpful but like many of the other ladies who have commented I do believe there is age discrimination in play. I am new to Care.com and over the course of ten days applied to six jobs. I received exactly one reply! I have cared for children from the time I was a young teen, raised my own three, have a College education in Early Childhood Ed, worked in three daycare centers as an assistant teacher and ran my own home daycare amounting to over 35 yrs. of experience. I can still bring lots of love and talentto a job but it seems I'm passed off as to old. I noticed someone mentioned that my age could be deleted from my profile but cannot figure out how to do that. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Hi I found a great job through this site and I am 65 years old! so keep trying many families like more mature caregivers because we have so much experience. There is nothing I haven't dealt with in my life, of course I am very healthy and active which helps. But the families I have worked for are very appreciative of my skills and the kids just love me! I am just another Grandma to them!

Has anyone ever considered creating a QR code that links to their Care.com profile and using it on flyers at the local grocery store or community bulletin board?

I agree with Joan about the age discrimination thing...I always reply that I am a "Mature" lady, etc. Just be persistant in applying to many jobs that interest you...eventually the right job will come along...afterall, we mature women are sometimes more reliable, as my present client has told me!

I don't include high school since I attended college. (Maybe someone with only a little experience who needs to fill their resume). Years ago it was said you're suppose to only have a ONE page resume, after working 15 years it isn't possible.
Qualifications and Certifications seems redundant. Although skills would allow you to highlight/sum up your experience. Which has me thinking if I should add "skills", but I've already highlighted them under responsibilities for each job (not repeating any, although I've don't them for more than one job).

This template looks very professional,brief ad concise..
It will really be very helpful for us,job-seekers.
I wanna use this and hopefully find a good job either in the peripheral area of lower Westchester, but more preferably in Bronxville where live.
I am very excited with Care.com as a new member but I will be aailable for a full time job by the last week of May as I will travel by May and I do not want to inconvenience my new employer or jeopardize my new job,
For now I am available for date nights of parents who need a break on week nights ( 8:30pm to 12 midnight).

Thank you Care.com and More power!
