This past week we discussed some of the basic housekeeping duties some nannies might do around the home such as, washing a baby's laundry, getting the kids to help do laundry, making beds, and ironing.
While some in-home child care providers strictly won't do certain The Professional Housekeeper explains that being a professional housekeeper can be very rewarding.
In Marta Perrone's book The Professional Housekeeper she shows us how to be a great housekeeper.
She says, "The ability to create an environment of cleanliness, order, charm, and beauty is but one of the many talents of a wonderful homemaker and housekeeper."
She continues, "Becoming a... professional housekeeper can be rewarding. It makes you an important part of a family’s every day life. Often, households require someone else to do the homemaking for them. To be a good household employer, you must know what is needed to get the job done right."
Marta Perrone also offers a Professional Housekeeper Certification. Household workers can take the certification exam that comes with the career and training guides to receive a course completion certification.
Information for housekeepers to learn includes:
- How to put together the necessary resume and qualifications.
- How to interview properly to better your chances of being hired.
- How to negotiate a job offer before accepting the position as it relates to: benefits, labor laws, salary and payroll, and more.
- How to maintain your job by staying professional at all times.
- How to handle problems on the job to avoid unnecessary terminations.
For those willing to pitch-in and help clean the home they work in, they will have a better understanding of how to have an efficient, stress-free, clean, and organized environment. Anyone completing this training will be empowered and proud to illustrate all skills and professionalism with confidence.
