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.”

You may be one of the many workers who hasn’t seen a raise or a promotion in years.  If so, you may be wondering what you can do to motivate management to see your true worth and compensate you accordingly.  After all, it is unlikely that you will receive a promotion merely because you are longing for one.

Typically, an organization will need a strong business reason to give you a promotion, especially if you have co-workers who want that promotion too.   Think about your situation from your boss’ perspective.  Your boss will have to justify requesting a promotion for you.  You can make your boss’ job easier if you give him or her some objective reasons for granting your request.

Here are some steps you can take to increase your chances of getting that promotion:

1)      Mention the fact that you have gotten a recent degree. A degree may qualify you for a promotion, especially if a degree (first degree or advanced degree) is a requirement for a higher level position within your organization.

2)      Rewrite your resume and submit it for a higher level position within your organization. A crisply written resume can distill your accomplishments for your different positions and make you shine. This may work in terms of getting you a promotion in another area within your organization.

3)      Ask your internal mentor to put in a good word for you. A mentor who is well placed within the organization can wield his or her influence in your favor.

4)      Think of some convincing reasons why the organization can benefit from giving you more responsibility. For example, you may have some ideas that would significantly contribute to the success of a new initiative, and a promotion would give you the opportunity to implement those ideas.

5)      Remind your boss that you have acted as the manager in the manager’s absence. If the company has trusted you to act in a higher capacity than your current job title indicates, then it shows that you are ready to be promoted.
