It’s tough to find a decent job these days, but if you’re a hard-working college graduate who can swim, play golf and tennis, make macaroni and cheese and clean up the kitchen afterward, who can deal with chaos and changing plans, devise games for a four-year-old and is cool enough to be adored by a teenager, there may be a position for you. The parents who posted this job description on sittercity.com have six high-energy kids, but you’d work just weekends and earn between $2,400 and $3,200 a month.
Here’s another possibility. Care for two adorable, creative girls; feed them fresh, healthy meals without sugar and bad carbs; guide them to good and polite behavior; have conversations with them about what’s going on in their lives; empty the dishwasher, wipe the counters and sink, and store leftovers appropriately. Also: You have to be able to swim and to stay overnight when necessary. Salary commensurate with experience.
