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.”

HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW ABOUT ONLINE NETWORKING?

Online networking has become increasingly important as it relates to the job search process.  Social networking sites give you the ability to connect virtually with people in any part of the world.  But it also has its pitfalls.  A faux pas in the virtual world can cost you great opportunities.

Take this short quiz to find out how much you know about networking online.

1)      You should constantly let people know that you are looking for a job through your status updates.

2)      You should limit your network to people you have actually met.

3)      You should be willing to share your expertise with virtual connections.

4)      Participating in social networking groups can raise your visibility and give you greater exposure to potential employers.

5)      It doesn’t matter if you upload a photo to your profile.

Here are the correct answers:

1)      You should constantly let people know that you are looking for a job through your status updates.

False.  You can easily get into overkill by constantly emphasizing the fact that you are unemployed.  Instead, you should offer something of value to your network.  Perhaps you can share an article that others would appreciate or offer your expertise.  People will start avoiding you after a while if all you have to say is that you are looking for a job.

2)      You should limit your network to people you have actually met.

False.  You will be overlooking opportunities to network online with great people who can help you with your job search if you restrict your networking to people that you have met face to face.  You can initiate your contact with individuals online and then follow up with them by phone contact or a face to face meeting where possible.

3)      You should be willing to share your expertise with virtual connections.

True.  Networking is a two-way street, and you don’t want to simply go to your connections and ask for something (namely, a job).  You also want to have something to offer.  Sharing your expertise is a great way to build a relationship.

4)      Participating in social networking groups can raise your visibility and give you greater exposure to potential employers.

True.  Many people who are new to online social networking simply fill out a profile and hope to be found by employers.  But to distinguish yourself from the competition, you should participate in online groups and share your expertise by answering questions.  Employers will look favorably on you as a candidate if you give well-thought out answers to questions by other group members.

6)      It doesn’t matter if you upload a photo to your profile.

False.  A photo makes your profile more personable.  It helps you make a more personal connection with people who view your profile.  You should have a headshot that shows you smiling.  A smile makes you seem more inviting.
