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.”

To land plum assignments and even to obtain a promotion, very often your qualifications alone are not enough.  It is often the case that the people who are upwardly mobile at work take pains to find ways to put themselves in front of upper management so that their potential can be realized.

After all, you may be the most qualified person in the organization, but if you are not well known, your qualifications may go unnoticed.  And of course in today’s competitive environment, you probably have many other people in your organization vying for the opportunity to advance in their careers.

Given this reality, here are some ways that you can increase your visibility on the job to position yourself for greater responsibilities in the future:

1) If possible, find an internal champion who can speak knowledgeably about your contributions. A mentor is the best person to serve in this capacity. If you have a mentor who is well placed in the organization, this person is in an excellent position to speak up for you.  An internal champion can open doors for you by recommending you for opportunities as they become available.

2) If your organization has a formal mentoring program, make sure that you take advantage of it. If they don’t have such a program, look around to see who might fill the role of a mentor for you.  Mentors can be invaluable in terms of giving you inside information about what it takes to succeed in the organization.  They can also share their mistakes with you so that you can learn from them.

3) Get involved in committees to increase your visibility in the organization and make a contribution outside of your department. Many large companies have committees to review processes or improve employee retention. Joining such a committee can expose you to other people in a large organization that you might not otherwise meet and can open the door for future job opportunities.

These are just a few ways that you can engage the assistance of others in moving your career forward.  Usually your qualifications are just a starting point, not an ending point.  Once your qualifications have been firmly established and you have solid work experience behind you, you need to take it upon yourself to employ methods of distinguishing yourself from others who have similar aspirations.
