After registering on CareLinx, you should create a comprehensive profile that explains the details of your background, qualifications, job preferences, and much more.
Table of Contents:
Comprehensive profiles help assure families that you are the right choice for their loved on when looking for home care.
Taking the extra time to set up your profile for success will lead to a fruitful career on CareLinx.
A background check is required and must be passed before being hired by any of our families on CareLinx. If you still need to complete your background check, please refer to the bottom of this document.
Here is an example of how comprehensive your profile should be:

Step 1: Upload a professional photo
Upload a clear, professional photograph of yourself.

Step 2: Add your rate and job preferences

You can also add an interval you are willing to accept for an hourly rate.

Add your rate and write a brief introduction about yourself - think of this as your "elevator pitch," you want to make a great first impression!
Step 4: Add your work experience, education, skills, and certifications.
Under Experience & Education, you can add your current certifications, education, work experience and skills.
If you have any certifications documents that can provide verification, please upload the into My Documents, by clicking See all documents on your profile.
Please make sure these are CURRENT documents, otherwise you will not be verified for the certification.
