Caregiver Job Application Tips

Senior home care agencies, assisted living companies and nursing homes continually must hire caregivers in order to keep up with staffing needs.  Both companion caregivers and certified nursing aides are needed.

When applying for a caregiving position, organize all your information and practice your 30-second commercial telling why you would be the perfect hire for the company's open caregiving position.

Make your commercial personal.  Think about what influenced you to become a professional caregiver or attend nursing aide initially.  Maybe you were part of a caregiving team for a friend or family member or saw a relative suffer from cancer or another disease.

Before showing up for the interview, be sure to have all of your information organized:

  • Resume
  • References (names and phone numbers)
  • Copy of Certificates of Training
  • Copy of Driver's License or State Identification
  • Copy of Birth Certificate or Passport if no State I.D. or Driver's License
You may apply for jobs in your area on Caregiverlist and also produce your own resume at no charge, following a customized resume template for senior care positions.
