It's important to have an amazing profile on the Au Pair Legend app so you can attract more likes from Host Families (remember... you can only chat with Families that like your profile). Here's our four tips to help you create that likeable profile:

  • Add 6 Amazing Photos
  • Add Lots of Detail 
  • Choose 1 or 2 Preferred Countries
  • Get your Visa

Follow these tips to get more likes on your profile.

1. Add 6 amazing photos
A picture is worth a thousand words. The best way to improve your profile is to add lots of amazing photos:

    Include photos that show off your hobbies and interests.
  • check
    Include photos of doing activities with children.

2. Add Lots of Detail

Add as much detail as possible to all areas of your profile. This is the type of information you should be including in each section of your profile:

About Me - Families want to know all about you to learn if they would be a good fit

  • Focus on describing yourself in this section.
  • check
    ​Write about your hobbies and interests.
  • check
    ​Share what you love doing on the weekends.
  • check
    Share your favourite foods.

    Describe yourself. (e.g. Outgoing, independent, happy person that loves to travel and spend time with kids)

Childcare Experience - Go into detail about all your childcare experience

  • What age children have you worked with?
  • check
    ​What activities do you enjoy doing with kids?

    ​Include any babysitting.
  • check
    Include any first aid or childcare certificates you have.

Why be an Au Pair- Families want to know what drives you to be an Au Pair

  • Write about why you want to be an Au Pair.
  • check
    ​Why do you want to learn new languages?
  • check
    ​Why do you want to travel?

3. Choose 1 or 2 Preferred Countries

Focus on connecting with families in countries you really want to go. Families want to interview Au Pairs that are committed to coming to their country, if you select 10 preferred countries it may look like you do not know where you want to go.

4. Get your Visa

When you are sure where you want to go, you should get the working holiday visa as soon as you can. Some families will only interview Au Pairs that have received their visa:

  • Research the visa requirements and confirm you are eligible to get a visa.
  • If possible, apply for the visa (some countries require you to find a family first)
  • check
    Update your Visa Status on the app to "I have a visa" or "I am eligible for a visa"
