To get better prepared, it will help to know these tips beforehand, whether the interview is phone-only or in-person.

Phone Interviews => Research the Employer

If an employer or family likes your application/profile, a phone interview is usually scheduled before an in-person one. Look at their online profile, if there is one. Phone interview checklist =>

Services you offer

Salary requirements

Non-negotiables

References

You should be prepared to discuss or explain those listed items in your phone interview. Give as much information as you can!

In-person Interviews => Arrive Early & Prepared

When the in-person (or video chat) interview finally comes, it will more likely be more casual than your average interview. You should still dress professionally, but comfortably, as the in-person interviews may take place in the client\u2019s home or a public place.

Arriving early shows employers that you are serious about the role. You should also plan to spend more time than you had scheduled for the interview. Have the family\u2019s contact information handy so you aren\u2019t lost if the interview takes place in a home. Bring your portfolio which may include the following =>

Your resume or CV

Certifications or proof of education

Full names of references with updated contact information

Printed background checks

Introduce yourself to the family, be friendly, and let the conversation ease into the interviewing process. Try to determine if your personality will mesh with the family, too, by getting to know each other before getting deep into the interview.
