A letter of interest or a prospecting letter for a nanny position is usually written when a nanny job is not advertised, but an applicant wishes to work for a specific company.
The purpose of writing a letter of interest is to show a prospective employer that you are “interested” in working for him or her and would like to be informed if there are any opportunities now or in the future.
By writing a nanny letter of interest, you achieve one of two things – you either find out about a job opportunity that wasn’t made public, or you provide a prospective employer with information on your availability so that he can consider you when an opportunity does arise. In this way, the applicant’s resume and letter of interest are filed for reference purposes and are picked up as first priority at a time when there is a job opening to fill.
When you write a letter of interest, keep in mind that the employer isn’t hiring just yet, and it will take a lot to convince him or her to keep your application on record for further reference. Write the letter with care and consideration, detailing your abilities and skills.
The following example will show you how it can be done:
