What are parents looking for in the "About Me" section of my profile?

A good "About me" blurb usually includes the following:

-       Your education (and major if relevant).  For example if you’re studying to be a teacher or nurse, definitely add that.

-       Your experience working with children.   Include when you started and the age ranges of kids that you’ve babysat for.

-       Why you love babysitting or what you like to do when you’re taking care of kids (crafts, outdoors, helping them with homework…etc).

-       A sentence about you to make it more personal.


Lastly, be sure to double check your profile for correct spelling and grammar. Typos are a turnoff for many parents.


Example:  "Hi - My name is Lucy and I'm currently a sophomore at USF.   I've been working with kids since I was 15 and love it.  I started by watching my younger brother and sister, and then began babysitting for kids in our neighborhood.  Over the last few years, I've worked primarily with infants and toddlers, but I love kids of all ages.  If it's nice out, I like to take the kids outside, but if not, I whip out my origami skills :)  In my free time, I love hiking, reading and cooking.
