PNow would be a good time to check your candidate’s references. Make sure that the referees are previous employers and not friends or family members. You may want to ask them:

  • When did she begin work with your family?
  • How long did she work for?
  • What were the reasons for her departure?
  • How many children did she look after?
  • What were her responsibilities?
  • What were her strengths/ weaknesses?
  • Is there anything that you would praise/ critique about her work specifically?
  • Would you recommend her for future employment?

Depending on the answers you receive you can decide whether to proceed to the next stage, the face to face interview.
