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.”

A job search these days of course includes being online.  No doubt you will respond to positions on job boards and probably post your resume on job boards as well.  And of course employers expect you to be on a social media site like LinkedIn.

But never forget that being online exposes you to danger in ways that printed copies of the newspaper and snail mail did not.  As you are searching for a new position, you need to be careful that your information does not fall into the wrong hands.

Here are some tips for staying safe online:

Don’t include your home address or home phone number when you post your resume to a public job board. Employers don’t have to know your home address or home phone number in order to contact you for an interview.  What you do need to include is your city and state as well as an email address.  You can also include a cell phone number since the cell phone is not easily traced back to your home address.  Or you can take out a Google Voice number and tie it to your home or cell phone number.

Be careful of what you share on social media. Sometimes people overshare on social media.  They will post information thinking that only their friends will see it, but hackers lurk in the shadows waiting to use information that you post against you.  For example, you might be invited to an in-person interview out of town.  If you post that information on social media, you run the risk of a hacker seeing it and using that information to schedule a break-in.

Never disclose your birth date on social media. Your birth date is a very important piece of information that needs to be kept secure.  Identity thieves can use this information to steal your identity and wreak havoc on your life. It’s very common for people to share birthday information on Facebook in particular.  Even though it feels good to have people wish you a happy birthday, you need to be very cautious because there are always shady people who are looking for someone to take advantage of.

This is practical advice for being smart and safe as you look for your next position.
