1. Let’s talk about money!

It’s a reliable source of steady income. Families need engaging and timely care for their children and want someone they can trust. Once providers start completing jobs, reliable caregivers can start receiving requests and referrals, which can land you a longer term care position. If you chose to find jobs through a platform like Tandem, you receive jobs that match with your schedule and preferences and you receive 100% of your earnings. There’s also an opportunity to participate in their referral program that earns you rewards.

You can make your own schedule and be your own boss. This is perfect for those attending college classes, or looking for a little extra money sitting or tutoring on the side in between work schedules. You work when you want and as often as you want.
