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.”

Susanne Ebling

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.”

You are probably one of millions of job seekers who joined LinkedIn to enhance your job search efforts.  But simply being a LinkedIn member does not guarantee that recruiters will find you or contact you for an interview.

Here are a few steps to your profile noticed by your target audience—recruiters and hiring managers:

Show and tell.  LinkedIn has a few applications that give you the option to incorporate multimedia into your profile.  You can use Box.net to upload audio files as well as Word and PDF files and SlideShare and Google Presentations to upload video as well as PowerPoint presentations.   You can either use an existing PowerPoint presentation or create a new one that illustrates your expertise.  For example, you can show growth in sales by including a chart that shows a spike in sales over time.  Including multimedia on your profile will add more life to it and give potential employers a more comprehensive view of you as a candidate.

Blog about it.  Providing great blog content can be a excellent way of demonstrating your expertise, and it can give you credibility with hiring managers.  LinkedIn has two applications that link your blog posts to your profile—BlogLink and WordPress.  As you add new blog posts, they will automatically appear on your profile.

Get published.  LinkedIn allows you to not only list your published works, but also to link to them on the web.  Showing that you have been published gives your profile greater credibility.

Follow your connections’ tweets.  LinkedIn has a relatively new application called Tweets that allows LinkedIn members to see which of their connections are on Twitter and then easily follow them.  You can also save your connections as a Twitter list.  This is a great way to stay abreast of what your connections are tweeting, which is very important if you are using LinkedIn and Twitter for your job search.  Tweets by hiring managers and recruiters can give you an idea of what is important to them, and you can use this information to start a conversation with them.

Create a traffic jam.  Drive traffic to your profile by adding keywords that recruiters will search for.  You will show up on the first page of results for whatever keywords you choose if you have enough of those keywords on your profile.  Recruiters are likely to contact those candidates whose profiles show up first in a keyword search.

Give your LinkedIn profile a makeover by having a LinkedIn expert polish your existing profile using the different applications to get employers to take notice.  Call 877-743-9521 to get a price quote or send an email to admin@calltocareer.com.
