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.”

If you are interested in a promotion, you should prepare yourself appropriately. Bosses are busy, and they don’t always have your career development and advancement in mind. That’s why you need to be thinking about where you want to go next and how to get there.

Here are some quick tips for how you can position yourself to make that next career move:

1) Show your contribution to the bottom line. Even if you are not in sales, you should still be able to articulate how the work that you do is valuable to the company. As far as possible you should be able to quantify how much money you saved, what time-saving measures you instituted, and how you improved processes. This is the type of information that you can share with your boss at your performance review. Don’t assume that your boss knows all that you do.

2) Raise your skill level. For many fields an advanced degree is becoming a necessity. Getting that degree can be a good reason for an employer to give you a raise and maybe even a promotion. Also, it is becoming increasingly common that certifications above and beyond a college degree are required for many fields. Obtaining a certification that is hot can mean more pay.

3) Look for opportunities to be involved in the organization at a high level. Joining company-wide committees can be a good way to become known outside of your department and gain visibility with management. You can demonstrate your problem-solving abilities as a committee member and also get to know others within the organization. Doing this can position you well to receive a promotion.

4) Let management know about leadership experience that you have outside of work. Even if employees have not had the opportunity to demonstrate leadership skills on the job, other experience may be persuasive. For example, an employee may have taken on a leadership role in a professional association. Or the employee may have used his or her leadership ability in the community. I had a client who was in finance, and he headed the finance committee of his home owners association. This is relevant experience and can help an employee build a case for a promotion.
