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.”

Perhaps you feel the need of a change.  Maybe work isn’t fun anymore or perhaps you think you could do better in another organization.  But before you jump ship, it’s worth your while to consider what type of change you need.  If you don’t carefully think through what type of change you need, you may end up jumping from the frying pan into the proverbial fire.

Here are the different types of changes to consider:

A job change. A job change is the easiest type of change to accomplish.  It means that you are staying in your same field using a familiar skill set in a different organization.

You might consider a job change if your organization is struggling financially, if there have already been layoffs and there are rumors of more, if there has been a company merger that results in duplication of functions, or if you need a new challenge.

An industry change. An industry change is a little more difficult than just a job change.  Most organizations prefer that you have experience in the industry where you are searching for work.  If you do not already have industry experience, it can be challenging to persuade employers that you will be able to quickly make a contribution to the organization.

An industry change may be in order if you are in an industry that has declined or has consolidated, leaving fewer positions available.   Your skills will be easily transferable if you are staying in the same profession and just changing industries.

A career change. It takes more planning and effort to effect a career change than either a job change or an industry change.  With a career change you will be changing professions, and in many cases that means a pay cut and/or a decrease in responsibilities since you will often be starting over in a new career.

People usually make career changes when the price of staying in the same field is higher than the price of changing fields.  In other words, people who finally decide to make a change have usually been unhappy with the type of work that they have been doing for some time.  But at some point it reaches a critical mass, and they decide that they cannot continue with what they have been doing.  They need a change.

Some people finally make a change when they are financially able to do so.  It is relatively common for people to decide to do something different after they officially retire.  Once people know that they have their retirement money to count on, it frees them up to explore new options.

Going through any type of career transition is now more difficult in today’s competitive job market.  For assistance with your career transition, call 877-743-9521 or send an email to admin@calltocareer.com to contact a career coach who can help you successfully navigate this time of change.
