All Potential Students who are called to the Private Service Profession as a Career Path come with different skill sets and unique personalities appropriate for service. As a result, Starkey developed an innovative process called the Personal Statement Exercise, now included in each of our in-house course curriculum to help Students identify their individual “Service Style.” This in-depth process contains a variety of personality assessments, technical skill indicators (including Starkey’s Technical Skills Qualifier), classroom exercises with peers, introspective writing, several interactions with our placement team, and exercises in improving interviewing skills. At the end of the Personal Statement Exercise you will know your Style of Service and the most appropriate position for you. You might begin the process of identifying your Service Style by asking yourself the following questions:
- When did you first know you were right for service as a career path?
- What are your top three morals, values and ethics and why?
- Family Tree: Where were you born, what style of family were you raised in?
- What role do you play in your extended family?
- Of Starkey’s 10 Service Standards outlined, what are your top three and why?
- What is your communication style? What is your work Style?
- Where do you want to be in your career path in five years?
If you have trouble answering these questions, you are not alone. However, learning the answers to these questions will change your perspective as to why you are in Service. Plan to take our Personal Statement Exercise in one of our Service Programs to see Who You Are, and What Position is Right for You in the Service profession. Don’t get caught being pigeon-holed as a Butler, or a Domestic when Household and Estate Management is right for you!
