ORU to Host Nanny Fair for Local Families

Oral Roberts University will be hosting the fourth annual nanny fair on August 27, 2013 from 4-6 p.m. in the Conference & Banquet Center located in the south lobby of the Mabee Center. The event will connect students with local families looking for a nanny or babysitter during the 2013-2014 school year.

The event will allow students and families to connect in a speed-networking format that guarantees at least 15 “interviews.” Parents will be given 90 seconds to share about their children as well as their specific childcare needs. This will be followed by an additional 90 seconds for students to highlight their qualifications and availability.

 After interviews are completed, parents and students are free to exchange contact information, or a master contact list may be requested from ORU Career Services.

"Parents within the Tulsa community are actively seeking out ORU students for their childcare needs because of their excellent reputation and high moral character,” said Allison Jones, director of ORU career services. “We received so many requests from families that we decided to create an event that would allow them to connect with students more effectively."

Interested parents must RSVP with Career Services at 918-495-6912 or careers@oru.edu to attend the ORU Nanny Fair.
