These days, more and more people are turning to alternative careers that they may have never considered before. Highly educated, professional people with maturity may find themselves kept out of the typical corporate environment as downsizing and outsourcing continues its decimation of a wide range of industries. At the same time, professionals who are still employed find themselves working harder, and for longer hours, than ever. While they may have a good income, their children are suffering because they lack that one-on-one attention from an adult at home.
Busy professionals, and professionals who are in-between jobs, can help each other. If you are looking for part-time or full time work as a nanny or babysitter, there have never been greater opportunities. Working as a nanny can offer many benefits not found in a normal job, including free accommodation and time off during the children's school day to work on that unfinished novel or study for a new career.
