Welcome Letter to the Au Pair

Good day, We are seeking a professional yet fun and sometimes funny friend to assist with our child and other domestic and property related help. All are welcome to apply and even a girl with no experience will still be considered.

We have recently signed up premium and are new and exploring, once a really accurate match responds, we will respond so please write back either way if you are at all interested.

To answer some basic questions, the nearest downtown is currently about 5 miles away and there is not a bus or train to get there. There is a paved bike path though. The nearest English learning class might be 5 miles or further. In summer we will live in another house where is only about 1 mile to downtown and the beach.
The questionnaire required to fill out for this profile is somewhat rigid and so many of the answers requested do not exactly fit our family and living situation... Basically we live in several locations throughout the year so if you want to travel and see the USA then we may be the ones for you. Sometimes we may even live short term on a modest boat or in an RV motorhome for fun and vacation.

The hours of work and pocket money are also a variable. Perhaps you prefer just the minimum hours of work and the maximum hours of free time, or maybe the maximum hours of work could also be possible depending on your ability and desire of extra pocket money.

Although Au pair is a good description of the essential needs for out young child, I've intentionally only selected 'live in help' to better describe the possibilities and to make clear that the living situation must be flexible to fit our seasonal lifestyle. Also we are open to 1-3 months to make sure or 12+ if all goes well. There will be plenty of time to discuss and have video interviews etc to better understand and explain. Also the season and time of year will allow a better understanding of exactly where and what will be expected and provided as living situation and conditions. Usually in a west coast ski mountain area in winter time and on an east coast island during the US summer season.

Also we want to make clear that there may be other nationalities acceptable but the few selected are part of our heritage or our favorite countries at the moment and from past experience. There are many others considerable.
Please understand that we can only choose one and that we expect that there will be many interested in this opportunity, and that likely that person will already be in the USA as it can be difficult to travel with visa hurdles and expenses. All countries are still welcome and we may be able to help with J1 visa paperwork. We are very open to discussion and if not this time then perhaps there will be a future opportunity as well!
It is of note that we will be driving across country from California to New England this month of April 2021 on I80 so it would be convenient to at least meet in person if an au pair lives along the way as we have contacted some from UT, PA, and some others along the way. :)

There is usually a private room and shared bathroom. Sometimes we travel so there may be times that we would spend nights in a motor home or on a cabin boat. If you are afraid of boats and the open coastal ocean, then you can certainly opt out of that. The season and time of year will determine exact location. The longest season is winter where there will be a stable room and house with minimal travel. If we have cable Wifi then we will share it but Wifi may be limited to your own cellular phone and sometimes even that is unreliable due to rural locations. We prefer someone who is not always online and who prefers real life interaction and activity, board games etc..
