5 Tips for the Aspiring Au Pair

Here’s a little article I wrote for Matador, an independent online travel magazine. A lot of fellow au pairs I’ve met in Amsterdam didn’t suffiently prepare for a job with a family, and found themselves in a situation they didn’t realize they’d signed up for. 5 Tips for the Aspiring Au Pair offers some advice on finding a job, and making sure you know what you’re getting into.

    Hi there!

    I really enjoy your blog. I found it when searching for people’s experiences as au pairs in Amsterdam. I have just returned from two and a half months in Europe and absolutely loved the place. I graduate from the University of Washington in March and was thinking about trying to be an au pair in Amsterdam next year. This article was really helpful, but what are some of the things you wish you knew before you decided to go?

    I’d really appreciate any of your advise!

    Thanks,
    Andrea
