Caregiver Job Application

What information should potential caregivers expect to be asked on a senior care job application?

Individuals interested in working as senior caregivers should be able to demonstrate they are dependable and trustworthy throughout the caregiving job application process.

You will be asked about your previous caregiving experience, work experience and your caregiving skills.  Names and addresses of past employers will be needed.  You will be asked to provide the start and end dates for your previous jobs and the reason for leaving.

You will also need to provide copies of any certifications and completed training programs.

Be sure all of your information is accurate, including the previous addresses where you have lived, in order for this information to match your background check.

As the most important aspect for success in caregiving is a caring personality and an interest in providing care and assistance to someone, think about how you can communicate your reasons for seeking this type of work.  If you can share stories about experiences you have had with family members or friends or through volunteering, you will be able to provide evidence that you truly are a caring individual.

  • I have been a stay at home mom for the past 15 years.  I am married and have 2 daughters.  My oldest has just been accepted to The Universty of Texas and will be moving to Austin in January.  My youngest is a senior in high school and will graduate in June.  I have always been a caregiver and would love to have the opportunity to meet with your company and see if I have the qualities you are looking for to be a caregiver for your seniors.  I do not have any formal experience with seniors except for family members.  I would be willing to go through training or classes that might be available to be better qualified for this position.  I am currently available for full time employement.
