If you are interested in finding someone to help with any type of care need, then Care.com is definitely the place. This includes finding babysitters, nannies, tutors, senior care, even housekeepers and personal assistants. Better yet, create your profile and find that perfect care related job! This site has been featured in a number of publications, such as The New York Times, USA Today and Parenting Magazine. There is also a ton of advice, help and even individual care.com sites targeted to certain major metropolitan areas.
Creating a profile on the Care.com site is quite easy and straightforward. There are clear instructions provided at every stage of the process, which should only take a few minutes to finish. Be sure to confirm your email address and then you are ready to get started. There is even an option to sign in with your Facebook account.
It is also quite easy to run targeted searches. To start, you will notice a nice welcome page upon returning to the site. Choose what type of job you are looking for from the drop down menu, then your zip code and what radius from that zip code you are willing to accept.
Job seekers may choose to begin with a free membership. However, this only provides limited access to the site. Premium membership offers the ability to contact interested parties before they even post a job, a featured position in searches, free background check and the ability to apply to jobs. The cost ranges from $10 to $20 per month, according to the length of your term.
The number of jobs listed on this site is also quite impressive. The focus on care and care giving permeates through everything, but it does include areas as different as senior care and tutoring.
Recruiters and agencies also have the option of using the Care.com site to help find quality employees. All of these profiles are carefully reviewed by site management. Once approved, you will have the option to choose either a free, full or custom listing. These listings will remain as long as your agency or business remains a member in good standing.
Since each application is individually reviewed, the site handles pricing and programs on a case by case basis. Contact them directly for more information regarding these services.

One of the special features is a very informative and helpful blog. This was actually started by one of the founders of the site, and each day there is a lot of interaction, along with a number of tips, advice and interesting ideas that all relate to the idea of care and care giving.
There are also a number of additional resources. This includes a listing of health insurance providers and options. There is also a pay calculator, which can help you determine the going rate for almost any time of care service in your area.
The site seems very dedicated to providing a safe and helpful environment for those seeking and providing care services. You may call and email with any questions you may have. There are also FAQ pages and methods for connecting with them through social media.
Care.com is a nice place to find new care providers of all different types. It can also be a great resource for finding people who are interested in getting into this field as workers (or finding a new position). The only con, is that it can be a bit difficult navigating around the site.
