Eight months ago, I was sitting in my apartment searching for jobs that were a good fit for a recent college graduate. I looked for customer service jobs, elderly caregiver jobs, and internships without any luck. Then, on a whim, I googled “nannying jobs” only to find an advertisement for Trusting Connections Nanny Agency.
As I thought about it, being a nanny started to make more and more sense. I had grown up babysitting for neighbors, nannying for three children every summer, and volunteering at my church Vacation Bible School program. I had just graduated college with a degree in Education, and I loved children, but I knew that I did not want to be a teacher. But I was skeptical of the agency. How would an agency benefit me? Would they actually be able to find me a compatible family? Would it be easier to nanny independently? I decided to put all of my worries aside to try it out, and I submitted my application.
I woke up the morning of my interview with butterflies in my belly. Worried that I would be late, I left my house knowing that I would make it to the office an hour early at the latest. As I walked in, my hands were shaking and I was lead to the office for my interview. As the interview started, I felt at ease and knew that I would love working for the company. They seem genuine and had options, they covered me with liability insurance, and took care of all my taxes. They took time to meet families individually and insured that I would be safe in every home that I visited. Finally, the interview ended, I was offered a job, and I moved from Waco to Dallas to start nannying once again.
Within a month of working, the TC team matched me with the perfect family. While I was skeptical that they would be able to find a family I was so compatible with in such a short amount of time, they proved that they knew exactly what they were doing. I fell in love with childcare, and woke up at 5am every morning excited to go to work.
Working with an agency gave me the opportunity to be a nanny without any worries. I didn’t wonder if I was safe going into new houses, I knew I was covered by liability insurance, and I never had to worry about my paycheck being late. The agency took all the stress off of me and allowed me to find my dream job, without having to search far and wide.
