I'm not the typical candidate that applies for an au pair program. I am a 26 year old male from the United States. Needless to say, I was apprehensive about the opportunities that would be available for me in Australia. I had quite my job as a fifth grade teacher in order to travel the world before settling down, buying a house, and starting a family.
From the very beginning of this process, I was able to meet with a great staff that helped and reassured me about this process and was more than willing to address my concerns.
After making the life changing decision to move forward with this program, I was amazed and thankful for how easy the process was for me. There was very little that I had to do. I simply provided my information, and they created my profile for me. They found families that were interested in my services within days. Within a month's time, I was in Australia with family that I would share this amazing journey with for the next six months.
I highly recommend that you take this opportunity to move overseas and follow your dreams. Never regret the things you wish you should have done!
