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 have sent out many resumes, but you are frustrated because you have gotten little to no response.  And perhaps the responses that you have received from posting your resume to large job boards are completely unrelated to your field.

Here are some reasons that your resume is not working for you:

1) It’s generic. A resume that is not targeted will not hit anything.  You have to know what type of position you are seeking and tailor the resume accordingly. A recruiter should be able to pick up your resume and within seconds see how your experience matches the position that the person is trying to fill.

2) The format looks unprofessional. Your resume sends a message, whether that message is positive or negative.  If the format looks unprofessional, but you are looking for a professional position, you end up shooting yourself in the foot.  You should use a crisp, professional format that represents you well.

3) There are no keywords. These days most resumes are scanned into a resume database after candidates submit them. Recruiters then search those resume databases for their perfect candidates by using keywords. If you don’t have keywords on your resume, your resume may never see the light of day.

4) Your resume is too long. Generally speaking, your resume should not exceed two pages.  And the most important information should be on the first page.  By writing a lengthy, wordy resume, you are giving recruiters a reason to weed you out of the hiring process.  Make it easy for recruiters to say yes to your resume by giving them a concise document that gets right to the point.

5) It’s unfocused. Often job seekers who have experience in varied areas fall into this trap.  It may be tempting to include a lot of different types of experience on your resume in the hopes that something will catch the employer’s eye, but this is unlikely to happen.  You have to do the work to ensure that your resume is focused and does not send mixed messages.
