Here is a novel way to meet your new nanny/babysitter.
Mei Koon is the founder of Meet the Sitter. She came up with the concept of ‘speed-dating’ for parents as she thought there was a need for more nannies and sitters in her area.
During one of her ‘face-to-face’ networking events with parents and vetted nannies and sitters, you, as a parent will be given five to seven minutes to meet and interview a potential candidate. During the night a parent will met up to 14 nannies.
After an evening of interviewing and meeting nannies, the parent is then given a portfolio of the candidates to take home with them.
Do you think you could make such an important decision in five to seven minutes? Let me know what you think.
