Learn what to ask during an interview.



Finding the right fit should be just as important to you as it is to the family you're interviewing for. While the employer will do their part in covering the necessary questions, you should come with your own set, to show interest and ensure you understand the responsibilities the job entails. Also, take this time to get to know the family. Could you see yourself working for them? At the end of the day you should walk away with a certain feel for the opportunity.

Depending on the care gig you are applying for, refer to these guides to prepare for the interview and take these considerations into account.
