Hello John,

to be able to find a familiy fast, it's very important that you have a nice profile - so use the next days to upload pictures and answer questions in the "more about me section", so that families can see who you are and if you would probably be a good au pair for them. See also 

Don't forget to add the countries you would like to go as an au pair in "Wished Hostcountries". After that you can check for matching families in the matching and contact your favorite families.

As an au pair, you need to be aware that there are many more au pairs searching for host families than the other way round, so you're are in strong competition with many many other au pairs - your profile is your application letter, so make sure it really describes who you are in the best possible way!

I cross my fingers for you, that you can find a "perfectMatch" soon!

First of all, You must work on your profile, Make it good, Include every single detail, and then Add Pictures families love pictures, Keep in mind that in most of cases children help their parents while choosing the proper Au Pair for them, so make your pictures fun and joyful, You are not looking for a job, you are looking for a family that you will be part of.
And Finally you can use Duolingo in order to enhance your languages skills, learn greetings and Start Contacting families.
