I am currently in Japan, to be exact in Osaka. Immediately after I returned back to Japan, I did my first au pair seminar in Osaka city. It was very exciting to meet with young people who are interested in the U.S. au pair program.
This time, there are several nursery school teachers with few years of professional experiences. There is also a university student with several overseas experiences. I also had a person who has been doing baby sitting for long time. Each person is very unique and great personalities.
They asked me many questions and we had a great time.
I interviewed three people who have already committed to apply as an au pair, so I am hoping that I can submit their applications to InterExchange Au Pair USA soon.
I am scheduled to have another au pair seminar in Tokyo in July, and I am going to have several consultations with prospects. There will be more Japanese au pairs in the next few months. I will keep you posted!
