Babysitters… Coming Right Up!

This new site founded by 3 high schoolers connects job-seeking students with local employers looking for sitters, tutors, dog walkers, etc. 📷 @keelifaith

jobbardThere’s a certain camaraderie that comes with being a parent – everyone’s always happy to give advice and share tips that will make another parent’s life easier. Except when it comes to babysitters: Then it’s every parent for himself, taking on the beast that is Care.com.

Being the friendly parents we are, we’re going to let you in on a new site we recently caught wind of: Jobbard.

Three Westchester high school students were struggling to find part-time jobs to supplement their unpaid internships, and yet they knew there were local parents looking for babysitters, tutors, pet and house sitters, etc. – but word of mouth was the only way to hear about them. So they created Jobbard to connect the two parties.

Students can post their resume and special skills, while employers (i.e. you) can post positions they’re seeking to fill – both for free. While it hasn’t taken the nation by storm quite yet, there are a bunch of posts for the Northeast, and the more people that use it, the more it will grow.

Plus coming soon: employee/employer reviews and payment integration a la Uber.

We see on-demand babysitters on the horizon.

Available online at jobbard.com.
