Job Shadowing FAQs
Do you have a Staging Advisor near my area?
We work with Staging Advisors across North America, and are continuing to build this directory – contact us to find out if we have someone near you (and advise us how far you are willing to travel for your appointment).
What type of home staging services will I get to see during my job shadow?
The job shadowing program is designed to show you a home staging consultation, however other services may be available by request.
How long will the job shadowing take?
The job shadowing is designed to include a 2-hour appointment. If additional time is requested, additional fees will apply.
Why do I need a criminal record check?
This is required in order to protect you, your Staging Advisor, and their client. You will be trusted in their client’s home, and we need to take measures in order to provide an expected level of security with the home staging company involved.
How should I dress for the job shadowing?
Your contract will provide a basic dress-code outline, but it is best to ask your Staging Advisor if they have any specific dress requirements or expectations. You will want to be sure that you dress appropriately for the type of service that you are shadowing as well.
How do I get started?
We will first need you to complete a short questionnaire. Once we have received this, we will contact you to arrange for the proper documents, and will work to get you set up with your Staging Advisor.
How long will it take to get this scheduled in?
The amount of time that it takes to get you scheduled in will vary by Staging Advisor. Please keep in mind that there may be some appointments that will not qualify for job shadowing, such as high-profile clients, new real estate agent appointments, etc. As well, your availability will also determine the ease of setting this up, but we will do our best to get you scheduled in as quickly as possible!
