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.”

7 Places to Make Your LinkedIn Profile Work for You

Once you have a crisp LinkedIn profile that effectively promotes your background and experience, it’s time to start driving traffic to it.  After all, what good is all the work you put into it if no one sees it?

Here are some places you might not have thought of to put your Linkedin URL so that your profile gets noticed:

Email signature. To get more visitors to your LinkedIn profile, add your profile URL to your email signature at the bottom of all your emails.  This is especially useful when you are contacting potential employers.  Instead of them having to search for your name on LinkedIn, they can click on that URL which will take them directly to your profile.

Twitter account. Twitter gives all users a space for them to include the URL for a website.  You can use this space to include your LinkedIn URL and drive more traffic to your LinkedIn profile.  Since LinkedIn is a platform that gives you the opportunity to give more information about you than Twitter does (and in a more professional manner), why not use Twitter to direct people to your LinkedIn profile?

Facebook account. As with Twitter, you can use your Facebook profile to lead people to your LinkedIn profile.  Your LinkedIn profile allows you to upload multimedia, share your work history, and give visitors an overview of you as a professional.  So using your Facebook account to promote your LinkedIn account makes sense.

Personal website. If you have a personal website where you have an online portfolio and creatively present your resume, this is another great place to highlight your LinkedIn profile by prominently placing your LinkedIn profile on the site.

Blog. A blog is a great place to promote your LinkedIn profile.  Through a blog you can express your opinions about what is happening in your field. And it is also a great opportunity to drive traffic to your profile where visitors where learn more about your background.

Resume. It is common these days to include your LinkedIn profile at the top of your resume with the rest of your contact information.  Make it easy for potential employers to see how you are presenting yourself online.  Most of them will be checking anyway, so you can win a few brownie points by simplifying the process for them and including that URL on the resume.

Business card. Whether you have a personal or professional card, it’s a good idea to include your LinkedIn profile on it.  There are people who will want to connect with you after they meet you, and LinkedIn is a great way to connect online.
