Introduction

LONG PROFILE: I travelled as AuPair in EU countries and I stayed one year with one family, and another cumulative year the other families. Because working parents need help sometimes and I don't plan to have children, I offer this service in exchange for hosting and boarding, and even as paid when more time or energy is required. For me being successful means that I don't have any major problems or liabilities. Similarly these are the kind of people and organisations I'm looking forward to work with. The greatest value I discovered in life is health. Although I worked for families who had more knowledge about maintaining a healthy lifestyle than me, I learnt something from each of them and I’d be happy to share. A monetary salary is not of great importance to me. My message for many great mums out there: for your boys to turn into great men, allow them to grow up around men!

In my experience as AuPair, I observed that some families who practice a personal business handle better recruiting and relationships. The reward for doing this task is to get a better price for the service. I also observed that families who dont have experience with recruiting are more satisfied with professionals selected by recruiting companies, but the higher price is obviously worth it. As for the length of an agreement, I met families who are interested for short term AuPairs, and they usually preffered them to do tasks as simple as to walk the dog, make a new friend for the kids, and families who need more time or demanding work, delegating some important tasks of the daily workflow.

This profile is intended for parents who are looking for a long term agreement, who can recruit and train an employee if necessary and who value getting things done more than a cheerful AuPair around. If any parent invited me temporarily for a week in a new country for example, that would still be ok.

Recruiting parents may find it useful to know some psychology, for recruiting as well as for understanding child development.

Before choosing, I advise parents to think about what they seek foremost to be able to identify a great personality match. Each personality type has some dominant strengths and a less strong side, as we cant be everything to everyone, though some dream to be polymaths. From the four types of personalities known from ancient times, they are categorised as two of them belonging to the utilitarian role and two of them to the social role. The utilitarians are the Thinker and the Artist. The social roles are the Guardian and the Idealist. The great surprise is that if you need to get things done efficiently in your house, my personality matches that of a thinker. But do not take it as an ideology: Einstein also played violin but was not an artist; The skills that I possess and parents can use are: the logic of maintaining order in the workflow of operations in the house, organising various technical activities, planning, scheduling and executing the whole program to be performed as a routine; In my past I excelled in Mathematics and at age 14 I was at my peak when I passed two stages at Olympiad of Mathematics in home country (use me as a teacher if needed); Being the best is only relative, as I met smarter students, for example when I was admitted to a very good university in London in Computer Science where I studied one year. Because I don't find it healthy to spend long time in front of the computer, I continue to improve the programming skills as a hobby. I dream to automate a whole house one day.

I think that recruiters may want to also understand the least developed side of each personality type to be able to form great relationships. By making use of people's strengths and not criticising or interfering with their weaknesses can be the way for collaboration. A good practice at my one year long stay as AuPair was that the family provided a live out room for me, and the space between us was useful to maintain a sense of independence which only strengthened our inter-dependence; I let you discover what are the weaknesses of the other personality types, and I’ll reveal what might be perceived as my weaknesses. Because thinking is an invisible activity, I may be perceived sometimes as lazy, while in fact I devise an ingenious solution to save the effort: think of all the technologies invented which save effort to people, and Archimedes quote: ‘Give me a lever long enough and a fulcrum on which to place it, and I shall move the Earth’. Sometimes I may come across as arrogant or inconsiderate of people’s feeling when telling the truth: take for example Einstein’s quote: "Only two things are infinite, the universe and human stupidity, and I'm not sure about the former." Sometimes being ingenious requires to defy the status quo, and that could be perceived as not obeying the rules or the established tradition. But people are attracted by intelligence like a magnet, so deal with it.

I wish you best luck in recruiting! Nic
