10 Ways to Find Babysitting Jobs Near Me
Depending on your neighborhood, the business of babysitting can be just as cutthroat as the corporate world. You have to ask yourself, ‘Have I done everything I can to find babysitting jobs near me?’ This list should give you a few ideas you might not have thought of.
- Craigslist – The mecca of job finding, Craigs is a prime place for you to look for jobs in your area and similarly close locales.
- Community Bulletin Boards – Many central town areas have cork boards for people to post cars, apartments, pets, or jobs. Make a nice flyer and advertise yourself!
- Community Events – Your town probably has social functions more often than you realize. Check out the local bake sale and let folks know you are out there.
- Friends – Even if you have friends that babysit, they might need a night off sometime. Being a babysitter’s alternate is better than not working at all.
- Family Friends – Your parents know other parents. So do your aunts and uncles, sisters and brothers. Make sure they know you are looking for work so they can send anyone they know your way.
- College – Do you live near a university or community college? Posting flyers up around there is the perfect place for moms trying to go back to school to find you out.
- Local Business – Tons of parents have night jobs, so head off to the local convenience store, diners, or supermarket, and post up your business card so they know how to find you.
- Playgrounds – If you go to a playground and you see some parents playing with their kids, it is the perfect opportunity to introduce yourself and give them your information.
- Nursery Schools – Be careful as many don’t want people soliciting around or in their business, but go in and talk to their supervisor and see what you can do to promote yourself to the parents, whether it is an introduction or a flyer.
- Keep Your Flyers Updated - Keep a checklist of all of the places you’ve put your information. Every few weeks, stop by and make sure that the paper hasn’t been torn down or replaced. Keeping your information and advertising fresh will make sure that people realize that you are still looking and want their business.
With these tips you should never ask ‘Where are all the babysitting jobs near me?’ because inevitably, they are going to come to you. Good luck!
