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.”

3 TIPS FOR TAILORING YOUR RESUME FOR A LEADERSHIP POSITION

Perhaps you are at the point in your career where you want to move into management.  You have a good track record as an individual contributor, but how do you make the leap into a management position?  How do you convince management that you are ready to join their ranks?

Your resume needs to show that you can make that transition.  Here are three pointers on how to tailor your resume so that it sends the message that you are indeed ready.

1)      Demonstrate your potential. You have to give an employer reason to believe that even though you have not had a leadership role yet, you are capable of being able to step into that role without a huge learning curve.  One way to do this is to mention on your resume that you have acted as a manager in the manager’s absence.  Even if was only for a week or two at a time, the fact that you have been trusted to assume that responsibility in the manager’s absence speaks to the fact that the organization trusted you to be a leader.  This type of information helps to give you credibility as you look to move into a leadership role on a full-time basis.

2)      Highlight your credentials. If you have a recent degree like an MBA, that information should go near the top of the resume.  Likewise, if you have certifications (i.e., Certified Association Executive) that are highly sought after by employers, that information should go near the top as well.  These types of credentials can help catapult you into the type of leadership position that you are seeking.

3)      Showcase managerial ability outside of work. Even if you have not had the opportunity to demonstrate leadership skills on the job, other experience may be persuasive.  For example, you may have taken on a leadership role in a professional association.  Or you may have used your 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 and can help you build a case a higher level position.
