Au Pair experience in Paris, France

Scotia Personnel was an excellent company to have a first time travel experience with. From start to finish, they were available for any questions, concerns, or advice.
When I was nineteen and looking for an opportunity to travel abroad, I really wanted to have a life changing experience. Scotia personnel was able to pair me with an amazing host family, I still speak with them to this day. It genuinely changed my life spending three months in France with my host family, the bond I created with the two girls I took care of was so strong. I loved being a part of that family.
I enjoyed my experience with scotia personnel so much so, that I have chosen to move forward with them to find an au pair for my family. They are the only people I would trust to find a safe, good person to join our family and to be a big sister to my son. What was the most amazing was that I worked with Scotia personnel six years ago, and the people I worked with still recognized my name and voice! I couldn't believe they remembered working with me so instantly. It just proved to me that they really take there time to find good quality candidates on both ends, the families we go and see, and the people striving to become an au pair.
I definitely wouldn't recommend any other company for an international experience.

What was the most nerve-racking moment and how did you overcome it?
Flying and maneuvering the airports in Europe! Their air ports are huge, they go everywhere that you can imagine, and there are always hundreds of thousands of people moving using this system everyday. IT was awesome when I mastered traveling in Europe!

Best way to travel

Scotia Personnel allowed me to travel the world and live in places I never thought I would get to experience. I've had the opportunity to live in France and China and I've made friends from around the world as well as have experiences that I'll never forget. The family that I was paired with have been nothing but accommodating and kind as well as willing to provide me with a memorable cultural experience. I have made a lot of friends whom I still keep in contact to this day. France is a great place to go especially if you are interested in seeing other parts of Europe. The best part about traveling and being submerged in a different culture for so long is how much you grow personally when I went back home after my program I felt like a different person, I felt more confident in myself and wiser to the ways of the world.
