Overview

Linda F. Radke, who has been both an educator and former owner of a household employment agency, has consolidated her experience and research in this invaluable guide for anyone considering a career in the field of household employment.

In a previous book, "Nannies, Maids and More," she offered professional tips to employers seeking household help. Now in "Household Careers: Nannies, Butlers, Maids, and More," she turns her bright style and practical tips to the other side of the coin: those in or contemplating a career in this field.

"Household Careers" provides definitions of 25 household careers and tells workers how to analyze their talents and interests, how to find the best opportunities, and how to get and hold jobs. With down-to-earth suggestions and humor, Ms. Radke describes the business-like aspects of finding jobs. She covers creative marketing in resumes, applications, and ads; how to use an employment agency; and, in an interview, what to learn and how to firm up an agreement. She tells where to get more information on training, schools, legal requirements, and job outlooks, including current salary ranges in various parts of the country. With wry humor she admits that it may all boil down to..."If the dog likes you, you're hired."
