How to Write a Resume
Presenting yourself to parents/potential employers in the best possible light is important!
Here are some resources on how to write a resume:
You may also wish to create a “baby book” to show parents at interviews. This would include your letters of reference, resume, pictures of you and past children that you cared for, and any certifications such as CPR or college transcripts, and other qualifications such as negative TB test, clean DMV record, etc.

Helpful Resources for updating your TB test, CPR, and Tdap vaccine, if needed
Nannies placed in a job by Bay Super Nannies will need to get current on their CPR (and possibly First Aid), have a negative TB test from within the last 2 years, and may need a Tdap vaccine if working with an infant. Typically the costs of these updates would be covered by the hiring family.
CPR: Three of the largest providers of Child/Infant CPR in the Bay Area are: Safety Training Seminars (http://safetytrainingseminars.com) and American Red Cross (http://www.redcross.org/take-a-class) and American Heart Association (www.americanheart.org/cpr). There are many other options as well.
Tdap: The Tdap vaccine (Tetanus-Diphtheria-Pertussis) is very important if working with a baby under 1 year old (more info at http://www.sfcdcp.org/pertussis.html ) as Tdap prevents whooping cough which can be very serious in newborns/infants.
Obtaining a TB Test and Tdap Vaccine: You can get a TB test and Tdap vaccine from your own doctor or hospital, or from other places like the SF Immunization and Travel Clinic (more info at http://www.sfcdcp.org/AITCcontact.html ), located at:
