What People Are Saying

Working with Cheryl last year was one of the best experiences in a long time of pursuing my professional development. She was able to help me define my visions, focus my efforts, and guide me towards an efficient and successful job search. Even though she has not worked in my field, she provided me with plenty of tailored resources and taught me how to use social media tools for professional networking and growth. Even after finding a new job I continue to work with her on my career development goals, because she thinks out of the box and gives advice that consistently brings me closer to the 5-year goal that she helped me formulate. Cheryl always appears to be one step ahead of your thought process and is extremely talented at asking the necessary questions so you can reach your own conclusions as to what seems best for you. She is motivating, supportive, optimistic yet realistic, and one of the most positive forces you can have on your side while trying to reach the next goal.”

Cheryl has been a pleasure to work with and she gets results. I found a new position, in a tough economic environment, through LinkedIn using the strategies that Cheryl taught me. I was in the job market actively looking for over six months. I was not using social media before the pilot program with Cheryl and was having very limited success. Once I started using social media based under Cheryl's direction, my success rate improved dramatically and the number of interviews increased resulting in multiple job offers. I highly recommend Cheryl as a career coach.

“I had been struggling with the umptenth rewrite of my resume for weeks, unable to get it to speak out for me. Then a mutual friend recommended Cheryl. I didn't call her right away since I stubbornly insisted to myself that I could do it without help. Finally, I realized that I needed a new set of eyes and some new thinking. Cheryl's response knocked me over. In a few short days I had a powerful resume that is exactly what I was looking for as well as a cover letter that I can easily customize. Cheryl delivers!

Cheryl wrote my resume, and after weeks of sending out my old resume and getting no phone calls, as soon as I got the first draft I sent it to a few job listings and was 5 for 6 in return phone calls- yes 5 for 6!!!..after no responses in the first 2 weeks; Cheryl's work made that much of a difference!! I know anyone looking to move on from where they are working and needs that GREAT resume should contact Cheryl immediately.”

STRATEGY FOR UNCERTAIN TIMES–STAY PREPARED

Changes

Financial giants have fallen. A $700 billion bailout plan. Unemployment rate rises. How do you cope with this economic uncertainty? Suppose your job is at risk. What to do? Stay prepared.

As a career coach with significant experience in outplacement, I know that job loss can come unexpectedly. I regularly advise clients to stay prepared. As we have seen, even companies that have heretofore stood the test of time can collapse and send their workers scrambling for new positions in a very competitive job market.

Here are some tips to prepare you for the possibility o job loss.

Have your resume professionally written so that you can be as competitive as possible in a tight job market. A professional resume writer can present you in the best possible light and highlight your unique strengths. Some job seekers make the mistake of thinking that they can simply do well at the interview, but it´s pretty hard to get the interview without a good resume.

Brush up on your interviewing skills. A great resume is designed to get you an interview, but you still have to convince the interviewer that you are the right person for the job. A competent career coach can help you prepare for the interview. A career coach can help you distill your answers to commonly asked interview questions to concise statements that demonstrate your strengths to the hiring manager. In addition, a career coach can help you address any potential weak areas that might be used against you in the interview (i.e., gaps in your work history, short tenure at jobs, etc.).

Know what you are worth in the marketplace. You can easily obtain salary information on the Internet through sites like salary.com and payscale.com. You should also check salary surveys done by professional associations. Armed with this information you will know what to expect and ask for when looking for a new position.

Maintain and continue to grow your network. By joining professional associations and increasing your connections on social networking sites like LinkedIn, you give yourself access to an ever-growing group of people with whom you can have a mutually beneficial relationship. By getting to know other professionals outside of your current company, you potentially have a network of people who can give you leads about openings.

Generally speaking, many people only know professionally the people that they work with. So when a downsizing happens, such people have to start building a professional network from scratch because the people in their company typically are not in a position to help them. After all, in a downsizing you are either the one directly affected or you are one of the ones trying to do the work left behind from the ones who were downsized. It is critical to get to know professionals outside of your organization before a downsizing, merger, or company closing happens so that you can quickly get job information from your network when you need it.
