HI Andrew and welcome to the forum, you have come to the right place for help and advice.
It can be very frustrating to receive repeated rejections, but please don’t take it personally it took me 6 weeks and numerous applications before I was successful also these are unique times, some would say not the best to begin your new sitter’s adventure.
There is great advice from members in this thread and Membership Services can also help, they will look at your applications, the sits you are applying for and your profile. Sometimes just a few small tweaks can make all the difference, as well as applying for the right sit as opposed to a sit.
Start local, if you can, where you will have the opportunity to meet the owner first. Add references to your profile as well as completing the verification levels … do please connect with the team, the ultimate goal is for every sitter to achieve their own level of successful … and you will.
The feeling when that first sit is confirmed is amazing.
