    Host: How many nannies should I interview?

    Jaclyn Gobuluk: Really, the choice is yours on how many applicants, you wish to pursue before finding out which nanny is best for your family. After reviewing the applications and deciding from there which candidate you would like to pursue. You want to do it in-depth interview, personal interview with each and every candidate.

    It really depends on how many applications that you came across that you felt were in lined what you are looking for that could be anywhere between one to 25 candidates. Within agency you are looking at anywhere between one to three or four candidates, but doing an independent search, you really have to go through quite a few of the nannies to really find the one that fits your needs and that number can t be determined by me, it is going to be a number that s determined by you, something that s going to make you feel most comfortable with the childcare provider, caring for your children.

    So, it maybe a few numbers, it could be as many as 50. It s really up to you and what the applicants have. The applications that you received in which one s look like they would be a good criteria fit for your family.
