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.”

Congratulations!  After searching for a job, you have now successfully landed one.  You may be wondering how to best spend the time after between now and your start date.  Since you clearly want to start off on the right foot, here are some tips for using that time wisely.

1)      Learn more about the company. No doubt you researched the company before the interview, but now that you have the job, it’s a good time to go back and do an even deeper dive.  Look for press releases and articles in the media about the company so that you have a good feel for what the issues are.

2)      Review information about the position. To ensure that you are ready to hit the ground running when you start work, it’s a good idea to review the vacancy announcement for the position as well as any notes that you took to remind you of what the organization is looking for in the new hire.

3)      Draft a plan for how you will address priorities. Assuming that you discussed the top priorities for the person in the new position at the time of the interview, you should now focus on how you will address them.  Your boss may not necessarily agree with all of your proposals, but it will certainly show that you have put some thought into how you will approach your new job if you have a meeting early on to share your strategies for addressing the top priorities for this position that you have just assumed.

4)      Review LinkedIn profiles of those who are in your business unit. Researching key people that you will be working with before you start your new position is a great way to get ahead of the game.  You can find out about the work histories of your new colleagues as well as any personal interests that they may have listed on their profile.  You may find that you have common interests which you capitalize on in your new working relationships.

5)      Take care of any personal business. Since it may well be a few months before you are able to build up leave time, it makes sense to schedule any doctors’ appointments or other types of appointments before you start your new job.  It doesn’t leave a good first impression if you walk in the door asking for time off.
