Introduction video

Au Pair Video One of the key success factors that will help you to find a Host Family is an attractive Au Pair profile. You can describe yourself in details there, add a letter to Host Family, some photos and also an introduction video. A video will help Au Pairs and Host Families to get a more real impression about you. Further we have collected some tips to help you create a nice video. 

Plan in advance what you would like to say

Present yourself. Try not to repeat all the details from your profile as most people watching a video have probably gone through the profile as well. Make a brief intro about you: your name, occupation, what you like, what are your hobbies. You can share with your future Host Family  or Au Pair how your typical day looks like. It will give them a great idea about your priorities and interests.
 
Introduce your family and friends. Let your friends and family say something about you to make the video more interactive. The third party opinion adds a special value. If you are a Host Family, you can show your home and future Au Pair room

Be confident and natural. 
 
Don’t be afraid to be creative. You can also make a video out of your pictures, short movies, with music background.
