We had found our last au pair with little effort. But this time was different. Our ad got no response at all. Was it the text, the hours, the pay? Nothing had changed. We scratched our heads and shivered. It was a cold Melbourne day in May. A week of misty rain and grey clouds... and then it suddenly dawned on us.
Finding an au pair is not always easy. At times it can feel like everybody is offering more and better and you struggle to keep up. How do you get heard in a noisy world when your voice is hoarse and you can't shout any louder? You whisper. If everybody else is shouting, you whisper.
When we hosted our first au pair, we were timid and unsure. Was the room big enough? Did we pay enough? What else should we be doing? We were keen to get this right. We kept asking other hosts until we got a better idea. Here is a short overview so you don't struggle with this question as we did.
As soon as you start talking about the edit of a video, you need editing terminology. We lacked those words and had to explain in long winded sentences what we meant. And often didn't even know what we meant or what options we had. We hope that this list will come in handy when you start talking about editing.
