Now host families can see au pairs on video

PRLog - Sep. 30, 2010 - LEICESTER, U.K. -- Jane Kind, VideoAuPair.com site owner, raised her children with the help of au pairs that she found online. When YouTube launched, the potential for au pair websites seemed obvious and so she set about designing a video based site of her own.  It was launched this spring, and is accumulating new visitors and registrations at a growing rate.

For au pair job seekers, video introductions have three advantages over conventional still pictures.
•   Parents and children can enjoy a richer impression of each candidate’s personality.
•   They can hear the au pair speaking the host country language.
•   They are assured that the candidate has makes a special effort.

Still picture-based au pair sites make it so easy for the applicant to post a profile in a few minutes. Parents can’t be sure that the young foreigner smiling in the photograph is really serious about the responsibilities they are going to take on. The extra effort of making a video reassures parents with a demonstration of commitment. See http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3-0e6-2jcdk for an example




For the au pair, a better selling pitch is important. Since the Crunch, there are fewer families offering places. On some au pair web sites there are three au pairs for every family looking. So two out of every three hopefuls are going to be disappointed. An introduction that shows greater initiative and drive is going to attract more interest.

Families can also upload videos on to http://www.videoaupair.com. Families that live in the world’s glamorous capitals attract lots of applicants. But families in less fashionable locations can enhance their appeal with a warm and appealing family video.

VideoAuPair has attracted girls and boys and families from all over Europe, America and Canada, talking to camera from their own homes. The candidates script their own clips, and the result is a fresh and insightful presentation.
