Show your future au pairs or host families how interested and serious you are about the au pair idea by uploading references in your profile. This offers a great possibility for you to quickly and easily provide evidence about your possible previous au pair experiences.
What may a suitable profile reference look like?
Au pairs should best upload references by former host families, parents they were babysitting for, internship certificates and certificates proving their participation in babysitting or first aid courses. Host families may wish to add letters of recommendation and references by previous au pairs.
How can I upload my references?
Once you are logged in, you simply click on "My profile" and "Edit texts". Scroll right down to the bottom of the page to upload your references. You can include up to 10 pages. Your references are displayed right beneath your photo. Host families can only upload and access references if they are Premium Members. Au pairs can generally upload their references.
By the way: Do you know our latest features?
Throughout the past few weeks we have been adding more useful features: thus, our users now have the opportunity to select more filters in their messaging section, e. g. only having the messages of those persons displayed who were logged in within the past 14 days. Furthermore, our users are instantly informed about new received messages while being logged into their profiles. A separate notification email is not sent in this case. Our users also decide for themselves how often they wish to be notified about new received messages. For this purpose, they merely need to click on "My profile" and "Change settings".
We hope you will enjoy our new functions. Please do not hesitate to send us your feedback.
