How Do You Put Babysitting on a Resume?

Babysitting is most commonly added to a skill-based resume, which includes a list of skills the applicant has and previous responsibilities from prior employment. Applicants then follow the skill section with a brief list of employers, including the family for whom they babysat.

Traditional formatting lists the job title and years worked, focusing less on skills and more on work experience. Applicants who choose to use traditional formatting, listing work experience in reverse chronological order, typically decide to include babysitting experience if it relates to the new position for which they are applying. Babysitting is also a typical choice to include in the employer references section.
