We’re delighted to announce our latest site development, which is free au pair CVs.
As of today, host families (with either premium or standard membership) can download completely free of charge selected au pair CVs, with full contact details including telephone number, email address and Skype contact details.
The first organisation to partner with us in sponsoring their students’ CVs is Infinity English College, Dublin. Infinity English College will also provide a reference for their students to any host families interested in employing them.
Host families will now see a new “Free CVs” link, when logged in to their account, on their left-hand side navigation – clicking that link will list all free au pair CVs on the site.
We have started our annual site (code) clean-up this week. Basically this means we’re going to be cleaning up the site’s code, and integrating further, any functionality we added in the last year. This work really shouldn’t impact users at all, however, if you do notice anything not working, or if you can suggest any way of improving anything, please let me know here. And remember, we’re always looking to add new functionality to the site, so if you suggest any, and we implement it we’ll give you free premium membership.
Thanks to feedback from Ruth we’ve improved our ‘Screening Letter’ functionality. Ruth found the screening letter functionality useful, but because she was sending so many screening letters she found that she was losing track of who she’d sent them to.
If you’re not familiar with the Screening Letter functionality you can read about it here.
Ruth suggested we add something that would indicate if we’d sent a job-seeker a screening letter, we thought this was a great idea, and, as promised in that blog posting, promised Ruth free membership next time she wanted to use the site again.
Now, after you’ve sent a job-seeker a screening letter, you will see that the ‘Send Screening Letter’ icon changes to a ‘Letter Sent’ icon. You’ll see this on your Purchased CVs page, your Shortlisted CVs page and on your search results pages.
If you can think of any way we can improve the site please post it below and if we use the idea, we’ll give you a free upgrade next time you want it.
Help us make your search for an Au Pair even better!
We’re always looking for ways to improve the AupairIreland website and we love adding new features designed to make your life a little easier. For example, we’re adding a ‘Remember Me’ tickbox to the login forms, meaning you won’t have to type in your username and password every time you visit the website.
We know the best source of ideas for improvement are our site members. So, if you have any suggestions on what you’d like to see added, or if there was something nice you liked on another site, please mention it below. If we decide to implement it we’ll give you a free upgrade to a Premium account next time you need it.
It’s always great to see our customers returning repeatedly over the years. It’s proof that we’re doing something right, and that host families are finding au pairs and home help again and again using our services.
To thank our loyal repeat customers, we’re offering you your 4th Premium membership free-of-charge. There’s no form to fill out, just use our contact form to send us the email address you use on the site (or the email address associated with your PayPal account), mention this offer, and we’ll do the rest.
There are no real terms and conditions, there’s no expiry date on this offer.
