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.”

As the economy improves and the labor market looks better than it has in several years, you may wonder if it is time to move on, especially if you spent the last few years hunkering down to weather the Great Recession.

Here is a quiz to help you determine whether or not it is time to change jobs.

For the following statements, choose true or false if you think the statement is a sign that you should make that change.

You know you need to change jobs if:

1)      You get up one day and don’t feel like going to work.  (True or False)

2)      You live for the weekends.  (True or False)

3)      Your job no longer holds a challenge for you, and there is no room for growth or advancement.  (True or False)

4)      You have been there for five years.  (True or False)

5)      If you don’t make a move now, you are likely to get stuck in a rut.  (True or False)

Correct Answers:

1) You get up one day and don’t feel like going to work.  (False)

How you feel on just one day is not a good indicator of whether or not you should change jobs.  If you don’t feel like going to work for a few months straight, that is a better indication that something is wrong and that you should start looking for something more fulfilling.

2) You live for the weekends.  (True)

If the best part of your week is always the weekends, it’s time to think about whether or not your job is toxic and if you should start searching for a better work environment.

3) Your job no longer holds a challenge for you, and there is no room for growth or advancement. (True)

If you can do your job with your eyes closed, it may be time for you to look for a new challenge. You may need a larger scope of responsibility.  If that is not available where you are, it is time to change jobs so that you can continue to grow.

4) You have been there for five years.  (False)

It has become the norm to change jobs every few years, but if you are in a good work environment and you feel challenged and fulfilled, you do not need to change jobs just to suit the norm.  If you have a great work environment and a great job, keep it.  It’s rather rare these days to find that combination.  I do suggest, however, that you stay abreast of the job market just in case you are forced to move on through a merger or layoff.

5) If you don’t make a move now, you are likely to get stuck in a rut.

It’s easy for human beings to stick with the familiar. But if you don’t take the risk of looking for something new, you can easily become overcome with inertia and miss out on an exciting career. As a career coach it is sad for me to hear people near the end of their careers expressing regrets because they did not take advantage of opportunities while they were available. It’s good to try new things and see where they will lead you.
