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.”

Conducting a job search can feel overwhelming sometimes, especially since the job search landscape has changed over the last couple of years.  Social media sites like LinkedIn and Twitter can be time-consuming and so can in-person networking. Many job seekers spend all day searching job boards.

It can be helpful to break down your job search tasks into manageable chunks so that you can stay on task and keep moving forward.

Here are some tips for your job search that take a minute or less to implement:

Practice your elevator pitch and record it using your webcam. Your elevator pitch is what you will say to describe yourself and your background to networking contacts and employers.  You can use it at networking meetings as well as in the interview when you are asked to tell the interviewer about yourself.  This speech should be short and yet compelling.  By recording it as a video you will be able to see and hear how you come across.

Send your resume to a colleague or professional resume writer for feedback. It’s very difficult to be objective about yourself and your experience.  You may not be presenting yourself in the best possible light on paper, but it’s hard to know that without objective feedback.  Find out what other knowledgeable people think about your resume.

Set up a job search alert on job boards such as indeed.com and simplyhired.com. Using job search alerts will make your job search more efficient. There is no need to search job boards every day for new openings. Simply set your search criteria and let the sites send you results that match your criteria.

Update your status. On social media you can keep your network informed of what you are doing and share value-added information with them by updating your status on sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook. This is a way of staying in touch with your network without pestering them.

Add one new person to your social network. Growing your network is a very important part of the job search process. You can take a small step towards building your network by identifying just one person that you want to connect with. Sending a LinkedIn invitation or following someone on Twitter takes less than a minute.

These are just a few ideas of job search tactics that you can implement in a very short period of time to make your job search more manageable.
