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 may be contemplating relocating to land that next position.  In many cases moving for a job is a very good career move. Even though the U.S. economy is still struggling to rebound, there are some areas of the country that are definitely doing better than others. Moving for a job may mean the difference between having a job and not having a job.

Here is a five-point checklist to help you decide if you should in fact relocate:
1)  Assess the financial health of the company. Is the company growing? Is it doing well in spite of the bad economy? If you can answer yes to these questions after doing your research, then that is a good reason to consider relocating for a job at that company.

2)  Do your research on the job market in the area you are considering relocating to. There is always the possibility that the job may not work out after you take it, so have a backup plan. You should know ahead of time what the job market looks like for people in your field so that you have a reasonable assurance that you can find another job if you find yourself in the worst case scenario of having to look for new employment in a new geographic location.

3)  Try to find out what the company’s policy is regarding layoffs through networking with friends and colleagues. If the company has a history of granting severance packages to laid off employees, you will know ahead of time that you will have some cushion if you are in fact laid off.

4)  Determine if the company pays for relocation expenses or if you are expected to pick up these costs yourself. Some companies will give you assistance in selling your home as part of the relocation package. If the company that you are considering offers this benefit, it is a positive sign that relocating for this job might be a good thing.

5)  Think about the social aspect of the proposed move. Are you open to moving to an area where you don’t know anyone or would you prefer moving to an area where you already have friends and/or family? Some people enjoy moving to an area where they don’t have established ties because they enjoy making new friends. Other people prefer to start with a network of people that they know and branch out from there. It’s best to be clear with yourself as to how important the social aspect of relocation is for you so that you can make the best choice.

By following this checklist you are in a better position to make a good career decision that factors in the different areas of your life that will be impacted by a move.
