Tips for finding summer babysitting jobs include networking, asking for referrals, posting flyers, monitoring ads and checking with mom groups. Babysitters make themselves more appealing to families by having referrals from past clients, having a babysitting plan and getting certifications in first aid and CPR.
Having a business plan helps the babysitter narrow down the options when finding babysitting jobs. The babysitter should consider the age of kids she wants to babysit and the number of hours she wants to work each week. Finding families who need babysitters is necessary to find a summer job. Once the babysitter finds a family, she needs to prove that she has the skills to provide quality care for the kids.
