The field of babysitting is exciting and growing rapidly as more and more parents enter the workforce and require someone to take care of their children. Jobs in babysitting range from professional nannies to after-school sitters and offers the worker the opportunity to have a very rewarding and fulfilling job caring for children.
Babysitting gives the worker the opportunity to have a flexible schedule with very enjoyable day-to-day activities. Rather than working an office job and sitting in a cubicle all day, the babysitter gets to take care of children all day, playing with them, helping them with homework, and taking them to and from activities. Many professional companies require a hired babysitter to have a CPR certification and several reliable references as well as a few years of experience babysitting. Be ready for very unpredictable and exhausting but very satisfying work each and every day!
