Get in touch!
If you have already found someone who seems to be a perfect company for the next few months - do not hesitate and send a message!
Remember, that nowadays people are busy and sometimes answering the mails is pushed to the very bottom of the daily pending tasks.
After you’ve communicated for some time at AuPair.com, remember to arrange a Skype video-call to discuss all the details and get to know each other on a personal level.
AuPair.com mailing system
Our messaging system is easy to understand. We will explain it to you right here:
Step 1: Click “View profile” to see the profile of the Host Family or the Au Pair.
Step 2: Right under the profile picture you will find a box that says “Message”
Step 3: Write a message inside this box. Say more than just “Hello” and “How are you?". Let the Au Pair or Host Family know, why they seem to be the perfect match and what you liked about their profile. Do not just copy messages!
Step 4: Click “Send”
Step 5: Wait for the response. Be patient, it may take a few days.
Before you make any decision, arrange a video-call and discuss in details all the terms of cooperation.
Keep in mind the time zones! You need to find a convenient time for both of you. Before the talk, try to note down all the questions you have in mind.
Establish closer relationship. Later on, it will be much easier for the Au Pair, the Host Family and particularly for the children to get along together.
Be on the safe side
Even if you reach an agreement during the first video-call, keep in touch with your Au Pair/Host Family as often as possible.
We recommend that Host Families and Au Pairs communicate as much as possible through our website.
Don’t use social media platforms like Facebook or apps like Whatsapp for communication. It will help you avoid some scam schemes and it will help us to support you better.
