Employers are sharp. That is to say; they can immediately tell if an applicant has spent enough time to write a cover letter for an au-pair job.
If an applicant hasn’t, the cover letter is a document for the trash.
Use your cover letter writing time efficiently. If you want to impress a prospective employer, you need to do a little better than average. Average doesn’t sell – the average is below par.

Re: Au Pair Position
Dear Mr. Doe:
Your au-pair position demands the skills, abilities, and work ethic that I have developed as a nanny and babysitter during my previous jobs. A recent graduate with great enthusiasm to the oversee activities of children and household, I am eager to leverage my skills and experience to contribute to your family.
Based on my understanding of your position and your family, here are some aspects of my background that seem most relevant to meet your needs:
• Demonstrated ability to supervise children from infancy to age 10.
• Well-versed in picking up dropping off children at school or after-school activities.
• Adept at supporting children to do homework.
• A long-term interest in performing light housework, laundry, and Ironing.
• Practical skills in running errands and shopping.
As you seek an au pair who can adapt your family norms and contribute to your different social activities, I hope you will consider my credentials. I will call you in the next few days to follow up and see if it is appropriate to arrange an interview.
Thank you for your time and consideration.
