As a newer sitter on UrbanSitter, one of the best ways to boost your profile and credibility as a sitter is to request recommendations from parents, employers, colleagues, and friends you've worked with before signing up on our site.
Think of recommendations as positive reviews from people you've worked with in the past who can speak to your babysitting skills, professionalism, stellar personality, and more.
Recommendations are simple:
- Reach out to the parent or employer with your personal recommendation link
- They create a free account and write you a recommendation
- The recommendation appears on your profile as a five star review!
Here's how to request recommendations on the UrbanSitter website accessed on a desktop or mobile web browser, and on the iPhone and Android app:
Web and Mobile Web Browser
Your personal recommendation link can be accessed via one of two ways: from your profile under 'Get reviews' and from your Success Guide under 'Get reviews'. Simply copy the link and send via an email or text message.
iPhone and Android app
You can copy your personal recommendation link from your 'Success Guide'. Tap the More tab then 'Success Guide'. Then tap 'Get recommendations' and share your link through the various apps available such as a message or email.
