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.”

HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW ABOUT YOUR ONLINE PRESENCE?


The following is a quick quiz to test your knowledge about your online presence. Answer true or false to the different statements and then read the correct answers below.

1) Recruiters only search social media sites for younger, less experienced workers.
2) You should Google your name regularly to monitor your online presence.
3) If you have a great social media profile, employers will find you.
4) Employers will never see anything that you post that is private as long as you have the right privacy settings.
5) A large network will expand your reach across LinkedIn.

Here are the correct answers:

1) Recruiters only search social media sites for younger, less experienced workers.

False. “In a(n) . . . ExecuNet survey about reputation management and Internet presence, 86 percent of executive recruiters say they routinely scour online sources for information that goes beyond a candidate’s résumé. Nearly 7-in-10 search firm consultants say that executive job candidates’ prospects improve when positive information is found online.” (2008 Executive Job Market Intelligence Report from ExecuNet)

2) You should Google your name regularly to monitor your online presence.

True. You need to see what recruiters will see when they search for you. That way you can make any needed adjustments to your online presence.

3) If you have a great social media profile, employers will find you.

False. Although you certainly need a great social media profile to stand out in a crowded job market, that is not enough. You need to drive employers to your profile with keywords that they will use to search for someone with your skill set.

4) Employers will never see any of your private posts as long as you have the right privacy settings.

False. Hackers routinely gain access to what is supposed to be private information. The prime example is Facebook. A woman by the name of Ashley Payne was forced to resign from her teaching job because she posted pictures of herself drinking on a vacation in Europe. Her Facebook page is private, but somehow someone accessed her information, and she was penalized for it.

5) A large network will expand your reach across LinkedIn.

True. Your second and third level connections on LinkedIn expand exponentially when you have a large network. It is much more likely that someone that you want to reach (i.e., a recruiter or hiring manager) will be included in your network at the second or third level if you have a sizable network.
