Applicant: I haven't been contacted by any parents. What should I do?
You don't necessarily have to wait to be contacted by parents. The platform allows you to contact local parents directly by searching for ads in your area!
We recommend that you send messages to several families in order to increase your chances of finding a job. We also encourage parents to respond as promptly as possible, but don't hesitate to contact them again if your messages remain unanswered. If you want to see when the parents you've contacted have read your messages, or if you want to have access to their phone numbers, get your profile verified first!
You can also filter search results by publication date, which will allow you to see the most recent job offers - i.e. those which are the most likely to have not been filled yet.
To help you get noticed by parents:
- Ask for reviews from employers that you've worked for, even from those who aren't registered on Yoopies. These ratings and recommendations play a crucial role in a parent's choice.
- Get your profile verified. Verification reassures parents and boosts your profile to the top of employer search results.
- Make sure your ad is complete and don't forget to add a profile picture!
