You graduate from college.

You land a job offer.  But should you take it?

It’s easy to rush into the first job you’re offered when bills loom large, but you need to treat it as if it’s the most important paper you’re researching for school – because this time, it’s not a grade on the line; it’s your happiness.

Tip:  While researching a potential employer, take advantage of websites like Glassdoor and Indeed to look up the anonymous reviews from people already working there.  Bottom Line: Life’s too short to not love the place you work.

Other tips discussed…

Do your homework

Ask the right questions during the interview

Check out the restroom?     https://is.gd/oIrdco

One good question, how much should I charge?

The average hourly rate (nationwide) is $16.43 for one child.

According to UrbanSitter, the going rate in NC is between $14 to 15 dollars.

The survey found that 38% of the parents hire a babysitter at least once a week.

FYI: 55% of parents tip their babysitter (over and above their hourly fee).
