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.”

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.”

HOW MUCH DO YOU KNOW ABOUT PREPARING FOR AN INTERVIEW?

Even though most people know that they need to prepare for an interview, not everyone is as prepared as they should be, especially when there are so many qualified candidates that they are competing against.

Here is a quick quiz to test your knowledge about preparing for an interview. Answer true or false to the different statements and then read the correct answers below.

1) You can only find out about the people interviewing you if you have an inside connection.

True or False

2) The interviewer already knows from your resume that you have the qualifications for the position.

True or False

3) As an interviewee, you should come prepared with questions for the interviewer to find out if this will be a good fit for you.

True or False

4) Interviewers don’t have any reason to be nervous about the interview since they are the ones in the driver’s seat.

True or False

5) A thank you letter isn’t necessary.

True or False

Here are the answers:

1) You can only find out about the people interviewing you if you have an inside connection.

False. There are several tools on the Internet to help you research your interviewer. Here are a few: LinkedIn, ZoomInfo, and Jigsaw. Knowing something about your interviewer can help you make a personal connection with this person, and it can help you build rapport quickly. For example, if your interviewer graduated from your alma mater, you can bring this up, and it may create a bond between the two of you because you have a shared experience.

2) The interviewer already knows from your resume that you have the qualifications for the position.

True. Assuming you have been truthful on your resume, your resume will tell the interviewer that you have the quantifications that the employer is looking for. By the time you get to the interview, the interviewer is not focused as much on your skill set as on your ability to fit in with the organization.

3) As an interviewee, you should come prepared with questions for the interviewer to find out if this will be a good fit for you.

True. Not only is the interviewer interviewing you, but you are also interviewing the interviewer. Given the fact that you will be spending the lion’s share of your waking hours at work, to the best of your ability, you should know what type of situation you are getting into.

4) Interviewers don’t have any reason to be nervous about the interview since they are the ones in the driver’s seat.

False. In many cases interviewers are nervous too. After all, if they hire the wrong person, it can be a very costly mistake. It can be costly financially, and it can also be costly in terms of the organization’s reputation, especially if they are hiring someone at the executive level. Employees reflect either positively or negatively on an organization, and if they are caught doing something illegal or unethical and it becomes public knowledge, it can be costly indeed.

5) A thank you letter isn’t necessary.

False. Given the intense level of competition for many jobs, you need to send a thank you letter as a way of expressing your appreciation for being given a chance to interview for the position. And you should keep in mind that the thank you letter can give you an opportunity to mention anything that is relevant to the position that you may have forgotten to say in the interview.
