The process of applying to a reputable agency can be daunting and frustrating. This informal Q+A session will give you a chance to chat with a recruitment coordinator and placement assistant about what they’re looking for as they reach out to candidates about jobs and what makes resumes stand out in the digital stack when selecting nannies to introduce to families. Bring your questions!
