How do you present your Host Family when you’re introducing yourselves to Au Pair Candidates?
It’s tough to strike the right balance between selling the appealing parts of your Host Family Situation so that you draw applicants towards your family, and being realistic enough to deter candidates who’d be a really poor fit with you .
Back in January, SeattleMOM wrote about being “rejected” by 10 candidates before she actually found someone who was really interested in her family’s particular situation.
She wondered if she was writing too much about the wrong things and scaring candidates off with her very first email.
“Should I start with the very bare basics, get them to at least respond with a “yes tell me more” and then hit them with the rest?”
