WHY???

Do people look for nannies on a website designed for hiring nannies when they always seem to end up hiring a family member or a family friend?  It is very frustrating!

Maybe they are in hopes for someone that connects with there family but dont end up making that connection plus its alot harder to trsut people these days so maybe they didnt feel anyone fit the criteria they r looking for

Something will come along. 
Do you list your nursing degree on your resume? That should give you a real good advantage.

We do meet them and their families during the interviews.

It does not help the nannies that lifetime is showing movies about nannies killing families either!

All the families do go through care.com to hire the nannies.

 I can see how that would be very frustrating but I'm guessing a family friend or family member is probaby a lot cheaper??
