Why Do We Offer This Service?

At Estate Management Solutions, we understand that while the private service industry is rich with history, it remains largely ill-defined, and this is due to a myriad of factors, including shifting generational wealth, the impact of technology, and the growing awareness of the industry. Our Private Service Professional Mentorship Programs aim to empower individuals within this industry to navigate its complexities with confidence and excel in their careers.

We provide a tailored roadmap to help you navigate the intricacies and peculiarities of the Private Service Industry. You will have centralized access to a range of tools and resources that have been carefully chosen based on our extensive experience in the private service industry to help you identify your path into Private Service.

Why Join Our Mentorship Program?

Our mentorship program is designed to equip private service professionals with the necessary skills, knowledge, and resources to thrive in this specialized industry. Whether you’re newcomer or seasoned professional, our program elevates your career with valuable insights and tools.

Sometimes, a fresh perspective from someone outside your immediate circle is all you need to overcome obstacles. Our mentorship program connects PSPs with experienced industry leaders who are eager to share their knowledge and expertise.

How Can I Increase My Chances of Success?

Knowledgeable private service professionals can be able to identify potential red flags in their industry, but even experts may overlook some warning signs. This is where a sounding board becomes invaluable. Having a mentor or an experienced individual in the industry can offer guidance and support as you work to achieve your goals. We’ll help you spot the red flags early on so you can steer clear of common pitfalls and increase your chances of success!

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I get a resume with this?

No.  We do not write resumes.

We review your resume and discuss what we look for when reviewing resumes, provide suggestions on edits, and if an overhaul is recommended, we provide you with two valuable resources that can write your resume for a fee.

Corporate resumes are very different from Private Service resumes.  The resources we recommend for resume writing are intimately familiar with our industry and know what Private Service Recruiters are looking for.

**The resources we recommend are not affiliated with EMS and we do not accept referral fees from them.  We recommend them because we know they deliver a product that greatly improves your chance of landing an interview.

Can you guarantee that I will get a job?

No.  Anyone making that promise or offering a “too good to be true” placement rate have alterior motives or don’t understand the industry.

We’ll provide you with the tools needed to improve your chances of getting an interview.  From there, the responsibility will rest solely on your shoulders.  Good recruiters and agencies will provide you with their guidance when interviewing for a family and will advocate for you.  But there are two overriding factors.  One, the agency is contractually obligated to its client, the Principal.  Two, this industry is about personal chemistry, something that is out of all of our hands.

Will the information you provide be applicable to all agencies?

No…..well, partially.

Every Private Service Placement Agency has its own unique methods of operating and presenting its candidates to Principals.  Each agency you speak with may ask you to change up your resume or provide it in a certain format that is consistent with their business practices.  It is up to you to heed their advice or move on to the next agency.

We will provide you with tips to help protect your previous principals/employers and references.  We will also help you identify the red flags that help you avoid agencies that may not have your best interest at heart.

Can't I find this information for free?

Yes, you absolutely can.

However, what we can do for you is compile everything in one location, provide you with one-on-one guidance and feedback, and get you connected to TRUSTED sources that have a proven track record of providing Private Service Professionals with accurate and extensive information.

We help you avoid those who are only focused on the money they can make from our largely unregulated and unstructured industry.

Are you going to try to sell me your products or services?

The direct answer is No; that’s not what this call is about.  This call is about you and your needs and it’s intended to help you identify your path, not force you into something you don’t need.

However, there is a reason why we’ve developed the classes we have; most professionals, both new and experienced, need the skills taught to them.  The Keys Class and the Essentials Course will most likely come up in our conversation, but it is not meant to pressure or force you into taking them.  Is it valuable?  Yes.  Is it for you? If not, we’ll help you find something that is!
