Placement Update

Certified ManagersLast week was very exciting for us in the Placement Department. We began on a path of discovery that examined our dedication to Starkey’s applicants,  as they become graduates.

Our question was how to better support future students through the admissions process and into the placement phase.  This led to a new “Education First” process. Launching this program has galvanized admissions and placement departments.  This means that an applicant, thinking about enrolling at Starkey International, will have access to the placement department to ask any questions, outline the process, and begin a relationship with placement from their very first steps.

We are excited about this new project. Both the Admissions Department and the Placement Department are looking forward to hearing feedback from applicants, students, and Certified Household Manager graduates.

Technical Skills Self-Assessment

The following is a Technical Skills Self–Assessment Matrix. This Matrix will be discussed in various formats during the course of the four and eight week programs.

Taking the service standards listed on the left side, please evaluate yourself on a scale of one to ten (one being low ability and ten being high ability). This form is a self-assessment tool to determine where you see your present skills now, and then you will re-assess the same skills at the end of the program.
