First things first, we encourage you to be as creative as you can. Really let your personality shine through. The more “you” you sound, the more likely you are to appeal to potential employers.

Second, as you only have space for three reasons at 60 characters each, you need to keep it short and sweet. Choose information that will really sell your abilities in as few words as possible.

Below are some examples based on different types of house sitters:


New House Sitter

You are new or just starting out in house sitting and don’t have much experience. But never fear! Just because you don’t have years of experience under your belt doesn’t mean you can’t be an excellent candidate. 

Some examples of reasons you could provide are your work ethic, your commitment, your drive, and so much more. 

Here are some examples that may help you better frame your own reasons:

“I maintain my own home and happy to do the same for you.”

“You take home’s security seriously and so do I.”

“I will make sure you come back to a safe and clean home.”

Experienced House Sitter

You have had many house sitting jobs or years of experience under your belt and have the skills to prove it. This is a great position to be in, but it doesn’t mean you don’t still need to sell your skills to employers. 

The best way to approach the ‘Reasons To Hire Me’ section is to highlight your track record and show your successes. By mentioning your years of experience, areas of expertise, comments made about you by previous employers, and other similar ideas, you will be able to better stand out as an experienced house sitter.

Here are some examples that may help you better frame your own reasons:

“I have 10+ years of housesitting experience in all seasons.”

“All of my past clients have rated me five stars!”

“I always do deep cleans of a home before you come back.”
