In order for your profile to look attractive and be visited by as many Au Pairs/host families as possible, we recommend the following guidelines:
In the first place, Needaupair.com recommends that any information stated in your form be real, in order to avoid any future problem with the host family or Au Pair, and to avoid any waste of time, since misinformation is usually discovered when the parties live together.
Complete the information required upon registration as an Au Pair or host family, and include as much additional information as possible by means of a letter of presentation, self-introduction video or pictures of the family and house.
In the additional information, especially in the letter of presentation, or in the self-introduction video, try to use simple language and be as accurate and concise as possible, and, if possible, prepare them in several languages, including English.
It is very positive to add pictures, in the case of aupairs, provided that the parents have given their consent, and in the case of host families, pictures of the family and house, in particular of the Au Pair's bedroom. In the event the family, for privacy reasons, do not like to upload pictures of their family or house, we recommend that you add pictures describing your family, or pictures of your neighbourhood, environment or even landscapes.
Needaupair.com gives you the opportunity to include a self-introduction video of 1 minute at most, with a brief self-presentation. This option is usually very appreciated by users and it enriches your profile. Although you may record a self-introduction video, Needaupair.com always recommends that before executing an agreement with an au pair or host family, you should carry at least one videoconference with them.
Being a Gold, Platinum or Diamond member will allow you to contact as many Au Pairs/host families as you want, whether through customised e-mails, online chat, or videoconferences, as well as to add services such as interpretation or follow-up services, which will be very useful throughout the search and development of the Au Pair programme.
Throughout the search process, be active. This will allow you to appear in the first positions on the page according to your activity level.
