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.”

Do I Really Need an App to Find a Job?

Mobile applications make almost everything easier, from finding local restaurants to managing documents on a tablet or smartphone. Job apps are also becoming more popular, as they allow jobseekers to identify suitable employment opportunities and make it easier for human resources professionals to manage applicant data. Using a job app is not an absolute requirement for finding a job, but it can make the process easier.

One of the biggest benefits of using job apps is reducing the amount of time it takes for you to search for a job. Finding jobs is difficult even in the best of times, so smart jobseekers use every tool available to make the job search easier. Some applications allow you to create customized job searches, while others search Twitter and other social media networks for relevant postings. Natasha Baker of “The Salt Lake Tribune” says these job apps “do the heavy lifting” for you, reducing the amount of time you spend looking for the right job opportunity.

Job apps also make it possible to find information you wouldn’t be able to with a traditional job search. Finding jobs close to home is important for many jobseekers, as most people do not want to spend hours commuting to and from work each day. JobLens, an app released by Nokia, helps users identify job opportunities in their neighborhoods. This app returns results from Indeed, LinkedIn, and other job search sites and lets users know about any personal connections within the company by connecting with social media networks.

One of the problems with filling out traditional job applications is you have no way to know how your qualifications stack up against the those of other applicants. If a human resources professional asks you to include information about your desired salary, there is also a concern that you will give a number that is too high or too low and hurt your chances of landing the job. TheLadders has a job app that picks the fifty best job opportunities for each user based on the user’s preferences, location, current job title, areas of expertise, and salary goals. Users who pay $25 to upgrade their memberships can also see how they compare to other people who use the app in terms of education and salary requirements.

Most employers do not require applicants to use job apps, but it is clear that using the apps can benefit jobseekers. If you want to reduce the amount of time and effort it takes to find the right job, consider using job apps to assist you in your search. These apps can help you identify the best opportunities based on your experience, credentials, and salary requirements. It is also possible to reduce your commute by identifying job openings close to your home.
