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!

Richard Floyd


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.”

3 LINKEDIN STRATEGIES THAT WILL ENHANCE YOUR CAREER SEARCH

linkedin-jobs

Like millions of other users, you are probably on LinkedIn to find new career opportunities.  But you may not be clear on how to use LinkedIn to your best advantage.  Here are three quick tips for uncovering more opportunities on LinkedIn:

1)      Find frequently used keywords in job ads for your field and incorporate them into your LinkedIn profile.  Recruiters will be using the Advanced Search function to find ideal candidates.  They will primarily be using keywords to identify candidates who have the skill set that they are seeking.  By analyzing job vacancies for any given field, you will find that the same keywords occur repeatedly.  These are the keywords that you need to use in your profile to ensure that you show up in search results.  Monitor your statistics on your homepage using “Who’s Viewed My Profile?” to see how frequently you are showing up in search results and how many people have viewed your profile.  By increasing the number of times you show up in search results you increase the number of opportunities that you are considered for.

2)      Use LinkedIn to find common ground with interviewers.  If you have an interview scheduled, it is a good idea to obtain the names of the interviewer(s) from the person who scheduled the appointment and then look the person(s) up on LinkedIn to see if they have a profile there.  If the person does have a profile, look for anything that you have in common with that person that you can mention in the interview.  For example, you may have the same alma mater or share contacts in common.  Sharing things that you have in common with the interviewer can establish rapport and possibly give you an edge in the hiring process.

3)      Search for companies that you are interested in on LinkedIn and then look for people who are in your network who you can connect with.  When you type in the name of a company that you want to work for in the search bar at the top of the page using the dropdown menu for Companies, LinkedIn will automatically tell you who you have in your network that works for that company.  If it is a second or third level connection, LinkedIn will let you know who the first or second level connections are that link you to the person who works for that company.  You can then forward an introduction through your first or second level connections to the person that you want to reach.  This is a way of networking your way into the position that you want.
