Baruch Hillel wants to let you know about a great new Jewish networking service on the Internet that serves people nationwide. The website is www.J-Sitter.com and is a place for Jewish families to find Jewish sitters in their area. Whether a person needs a babysitter, pet sitter or house sitter, they will be able to find it all on J-Sitter. Not only will this provide parents an easy way to find the relief they need, but it allows a place for people to find jobs as well. I believe this would be a helpful site for you if you are looking for a full or part-time job, baby sitting, pet sitting, or house sitting. This is a great website that can help hillel students who are in school, but looking for a great way to make money while earning their education.
How it works. For sitters, they will create a profile, which will include their skills and qualifications, as well as their experience. They will then be able to search jobs that parents and families have posted, as well as give the families access to their profile. For safety reasons, there is a recommendation page that urges the sitters to meet their potential employers in a public place, as well as provide references on both sides. There is also a background check agency who performs nationwide checks advertising their services on the site for both sitters and parents to use.
For parents, they will have access to look at babysitters in their area. For a minimal charge, they will be able to post jobs as well as search for babysitters in their area. This will take away a lot of stress of trying to find a last minute babysitter and trying to find someone for holidays as well. It is also a great tool for people who just moved into a new area, since they may not know anyone who can refer them a reliable sitter.
We encourage all sitters to create profiles and sign up now in order to build the database. For those parentswho wish to find a sitter on this site, we strongly advise you to wait at least 2 weeks to sign up for the database to build up in order to fully maximize the potential that JSitter has to offer. All users should give the website 2-3 weeks to start searching for a family to work for or a sitter to hire due to the site being new and people are just beginning to sign up. So be patient, spread the word, and enjoy the website. Visit www.J-Sitter.com TODAY!
The support and excitement that has been received has made us very excited for the launch. I ask you to please help us spread the word, to both parents and potential sitters, for this is something that will benefit everyone. Please let me know if I can send flyers for you to hang up or hand out and please let me know if I can provide you with any additional information. Thank you very much for your support and I look forward to seeing you on J-Sitter.
