I first became a caregiver to help out a friend who needed someone to care for her daughter. I thought it would be a nice career change. I've always loved helping people and I had experience before with helping members of my own family. I really like being a caregiver because I truly enjoy helping others. A personal achievement that I'm proud of is that I graduated recently from the Canadian Institute of English, and received 3 certified language teaching certificates. Something about myself is that I speak 5 different languages, and on the side I'm an online English teacher to people in Taiwan and China.
Caregivers that work non-full-time jobs or irregular shifts can negotiate extra compensation in addition to their standard hourly wage.
