Most babysitters ﬁnd jobs through people they know or by advertising their services on bulletin boards, in bulletins of churches and other local organizations, and in newspapers. Some babysitters work for agencies that will assign them to jobs. Earnings are based on community standards. A babysitter in New York City or Chicago will earn more than one in rural North Dakota. Earnings are typically an hourly fee. However, older, experienced babysitters will be able to charge more for their services than their younger, less experienced counterparts. Young beginning babysitters often start at $5.00 to $7.00 per hour while more experienced adult sitters will typically earn $10.00 to $25.00 per hour based on the number of children in a family. Overnight sitters often receive a ﬂat fee.
