This app is what *every* babysitter needs to get the job

So you want to be a babysitter...but you have *no* idea where to start. Sure, your neighbor might let you watch her kids every once in awhile or you can pass out flyers and hope someone calls you, but what if there was an easier way to get more gigs?

Turns out, like most things, there's an app for that now. It's called Bambinoand it's making your babysitting biz so much easier to start (and make successful!). As long as you're at least 13 years old, you can snag the super sitting service for free on the app store or Google Play.

Here's how it works:

1. Connect with families you already know through Facebook to find your next gig. (Hint: Once you babysit, you can request a recommendation from the parents which allows friends of that fam to also view you on the app.) 

2. Find out what's available. Families can send you all the deets directly, from the dates and times to the number of kids to the pay rate.

3. Check yes or no. You get to decide which jobs you do (or don't) want to accept.

4. Get paid! After you've booked a gig, the app can do everything from recording the time you're there to calculating your earnings. And the parents can even pay you through the app, meaning no more wads of cash shoved in your purse.
