Global Love Report Interview
GLR: Hi, Jaida! Tell us more about your company!
Jaida Pervis (JP): I’m the Vice President of Select Date Society (SDS). We have many offices nationwide in the U.S – From New York City, Washington DC, Miami, Houston, Boston, Chicago, Minneapolis, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and many more!
GLR: What would you say your niche market is?
JP: SDS represents successful, high-quality, upscale professional singles, that have achieved success in every other aspect of their lives. They have now chosen to take a more proactive approach to achieve success in their personal lives as well.
GLR: What was your career before and why did you choose to change the industry?
JP: Before stepping into my dream career, I worked in Education at the University Level as a College Admissions Director. I chose to make a change because the passion I was seeking just was not there.
A friend of mine suggested a position with a Matchmaking Company because I had been connecting people for most of my life. Both friends and family, many of which resulted in successful marriages. Finding something that you are passionate about is the key to success! From the day I applied, accepted, and began my journey I have never been happier, and have never looked back.
GLR: Last question – What’s the one thing you look forward to as a certified Matchmaker?
JP: Continuing to connect couples with finding that special person. Simply sharing in a client’s excitement, and happiness knowing that I have been a part of their path to love is extremely rewarding. Working within a community of like-minded individuals. The depth of experience from others provides invaluable support and resources which I believe will benefit my clients in the future.
GLR: Thank you, Jaida!
Read more about Select Date Society
The partnership of Amber & Sandra began with an idea of becoming the “Ritz Carlton” of matchmaking. They both believe that if the focus is on client outcomes, rather than the next new client, then the business would take care of itself. With 50 years of combined experience in the industry, they have not only created the best dating options for accomplished single professionals, but have also hired the best team of professional matchmakers in the industry. This highly seasoned group of matchmakers has the expertise and experience that deliver clients the results they deserve!
The strength of the company comes from the combined talents of both Amber & Sandra. Amber has forged incredible relationships throughout the years and has brought that breadth of resources to the company. Success in this industry is definitely all about the resources you have and the relationships you have maintained.
Sandra has focused her attention to the experience of the customer and how SDS could elevate that for their clients. This was accomplished by creating an environment where clients feel like family, rather than just another number in a pool of people.
SDS is a place where clients now have a way to engage in their dating life with a positive attitude and a genuine excitement for what’s next. Clients know that the company they invested in, is equally as invested in their outcome and will support their efforts in every way possible.
While SDS takes care of your heart, know you will take care of someone else’s. Select Date Society will donate a portion of your membership directly to the American Heart Association.
Amber has an extraordinary personal story of surviving a sudden cardiac arrest and miraculously survived. To honor Amber’s miracle, SDS is committed to giving back to this incredible organization with every heart we touch!
