How do I include a nanny position on a resume?

by Lisa
(Boston, MA)

I recently left an office position and am now working as a Nanny. I need to update my resume but am not sure how to format it. For my previous positions, I listed the employer name and then beneath it the title I held. How can I list an employer name for my Nanny position?

Answer: I think you have a couple of choices. You could either say you are "self-employed" for that period of time. Or you could list your employer as "The Smith Family" or the name of whichever parent hired you. Any of those should work. Title would be listed as "Nanny".

Does that help? Kathi

Yes, Kathi says right.
Resume format is updating day by day. SO you need to know about the current format. If you think you are not able to write your resume in the updated format then essay writing service can help you.

Not A Prob!! NEW

To add your nanny qualification to your resume will require some modifications. First think you will have to have some experience and google chrome crashing will have to add it up in the resume. Then I think if you have some certification, it will be better to add it too.
