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.”

Are you interested in shortening the length of your job search?  Would you be interested in learning how to job search most effectively?  Then read on.

You can waste a lot of time spinning your wheels in your job search on methods that are not the most useful.  There are millions of people who could have been employed much earlier with jobs more in line with their skill sets if they had known what to do and what not to do in their job search.

Here are some ways that you can avoid that fate:

Use a variety of job search methods. The U.S. Department of Labor has research to show that those who employ many different job search methods instead of just one shorten the length of the job search.  In other words, don’t put all your eggs in one basket.

Set up email alerts. One job search method that is overused is job boards.  It’s not that you shouldn’t use job boards.   You should use them, but don’t spend inordinate amounts of time searching for new jobs every day.  Use job boards such as indeed.com and simplyhired.com and create job alerts based on criteria that will give you the best results.  Let the computer work for you instead of you being overworked by the computer.

Automate your networking. Social networking sites such as LinkedIn enable you to connect easily to former work colleagues, alumni, and friends.  Although in-person networking is still necessary, you can automate some of your networking efforts by sending updates to all of your contacts or just a select group simultaneously.

Focus on the best fit. The scatter gun approach doesn’t generally work when it comes to job search in the 21st century.  Identify organizations and job titles that make the most sense for you and then make sure that your resume is tailored to those types of positions.  You are not a good fit for every organization, and every organization is not a good fit for you.  Take some time to identify for yourself the size, location, mission, and revenues of the type of organization that you function best in.  Then use resources such as Standard and Poor’s to help you drill down to find those types of organizations and then target them for your job search.

Leverage your membership in professional associations. Professional associations are a great way to do targeted networking.  The members in your professional association are already in your field, so they can be the best source of networking contacts.  Stay abreast of openings that are posted on the professional association’s website and go to the monthly meetings to meet new people.  It’s also a good thing to join committees so that you get to know some of the movers and shakers in the professional association in more depth.
