America (USA) Au Pair Testimonies

I was so grateful that I went through Cara International. The agency ensured that I was treated and paid fairly. They did thorough background checks on both sides and set up video meetings between the family and myself before I moved over there. I felt very safe and I knew if something went wrong I had a safety net to fall back on.  Kayleigh Barrucci 

I am now in my eighth month of living in Ireland and working as an au pair through Cara International and have not regretted a single moment!  I have had the pleasure of working for a wonderful family and taking care of their four children who have welcomed me with love into their home. My decision to move to Ireland was made without hesitation due to the continual support and check-ins from the agency staff. I had help applying for my working holiday visa, all questions or concerns were answered and I received an email within days of arriving in Ireland to offer support and notify me of ways I can get help if I needed it. In addition to this, I was set up with easy to follow online courses relevant to my role as an au pair that were very helpful in preparing me for working with children. Undoubtedly the biggest positive of this experience is the ease of travel. All money that I earn is mine to enjoy as board and expenses are already covered meaning that in eight months I have been here I have travelled to ten different Irish towns (some more than once) and six other countries in Europe. I couldn’t recommend this programme enough as a post-graduate option either from high school or university. The positives and opportunities are countless- travelling to new countries, the delight of working with children, building on your own perception of the world, new skills and experience to add to your graduate CV and becoming immersed in a different culture to your own.  Laurel Hewetson 

They were kind and helpful. They were good about keeping communication lines open and helping you adjust to the country (telling what events are going on). Kathleen Burke
