The very first step

After coming to the decision of becoming an Au Pair I had to choose one organization out of hundreds. To make this decision I asked myself the following questions:


  • Where do I want to go? (Country)
  • What are my conceptions and requirements of an organization?
  • Are there any negative facts about an organization I couldn’t live with?


In consideration of these questions I researched the organizations’ homepages and read many field reports from former Au Pairs to get an idea of every single organization.  Whilst reading these reports I had to filter off those things which the Au Pairs mentioned as negative but which don’t show a Problem to me.  It didn’t take long until I knew that I want to go to New Zealand with AIFS who cooperates with the New Zealand organization Au Pair Link.
