Your profile is your personal business card! The more detailed and informative your profile is the better chances you have to find a host family. When creating your profile try to look at yourself from a host family’s point of view searching for an au pair. What is really important for this family? The fact that you want to get acquainted with the host country, learn its language and wish to travel is good. But is this the most important thing for the host family as well? Definitely not! Your desire to care for the children of your host family should come first. You should like to play with them, to do handcrafts, to sing, spend time with them as an elder sister (or elder brother) and have fun together. Our application process instruction will help you to create an attractive and honest application package.
The interview stage is an important part of the selection process. You should get a good impression of the family on the phone or Skype. A job interview can be frightening even in your native language. Our training gets you prepared for it and you must be sure it will run smoothly. Please remember: your host family also knows you only from your profile and the phone calls. They take a risk as well and do not know what kind of person comes to their house.
Once there are some families interested in you we will suggest them to you and you can get in touch with them.
You need to get an appointment at the US embassy to apply for your J-1 visa. We will get you prepared for the visa interview, and we also can arrange the whole visa procedure for you.
The primary purpose of the visa training is to interact with you to help confirm your eligibility for the program you have applied for and to be sure you are not inadmissible to the U.S. based on health grounds or criminal activities. All things being equal, the whole process will only take between 20 and 30 minutes. Be very honest while answering the interview questions as any detection of falsehood may lead to visa denial and total forfeiture of your intended J-1 program. On the day of your J1 visa interview, be sure to arrive prepared with your documents in hand. We all know how stressful this process could be, not to mention the loads of paperwork you have to fill in and bring them with you to the embassy. That is why the team of Aupairfect is here to help and prepare you for the visa interview. We provide you with all necessary documents for your visa application and guide you through the process. We help you arrange a visa appointment at the U.S. Embassy in Hungary.
The Au Pair Handbook has been designed to provide you with practical information about the au pair job and living in a foreign country. This handbook provides information on how to prepare yourself for your time and for your au pair duties, and how to settle in for a successful year with your new host family and community.
There are many important things you need to consider before going to the USA: gathering all the documents you need for registration in the host country, making sure your insurance coverage is sufficient, packing the suitcase. Our agency will arrange air travel from Hungary to the nearest airport to the Au Pair Training School before travelling to your host family. In the USA flight the ticket is covered by the Host Family. Moreover, if the Au Pair completes the whole stay of 12 months as agreed in the contract, the Au pair can get a return ticket covered as well.
After your arrival abroad, during your settling-in period you and your family back home can contact us any time. We are here for you and please feel free to turn to us for any advice, or even if you just want to share your new experiences.
Children love to be engaged in all sorts of activities. Don’t just watch them playing - play with them! Get down on the ground with them.
