A companion question to the post on Interviewing Rematch Au Pairs: Special Questions?
With Extension Au Pairs, the number one question I’d have is — Why aren’t you staying with your current host family?
I can think of a million perfectly acceptable reasons for wanting to have a different family for an extension.
Seeing a different family, a different part of the country, and otherwise maximizing the variety of ones au pair year experience would all make sense to me.
And I’d be a *total sucker* for that kind of reasoning. Really easy for a motivated au pair to fool. <sigh>
What questions do you ask of an Extension Au Pair to get a real sense of what the au pair has learned and what s/he’s hoping to move towards?
