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!

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.”

POSITIONING YOUR RESUME FOR A LEADERSHIP ROLE

Do you feel ready to move into an executive position?  Maybe you have been at a senior professional level for a few years, and you want to make the move into leadership.  How do you make that leap?  You have proved yourself in terms of mastering your role as an individual contributor, but leadership requires a different skill set.

Here are some tips for truthfully representing your skills while demonstrating to potential employers that you are ready to transition into management.

1)      Highlight leadership skills that you have used on the job. You may have had a team leadership role.  If so, make sure that this information is prominent on your resume.  Also, you may have acted as the manager in the manager’s absence.  This should also be reflected on your resume because it shows that the organization trusted you to assume that responsibility, even if it was for a short period of time.

2)      Focus on management skills you have used in your volunteer work. If you have done volunteer work in the community where you had a leadership role, be sure to include this on your resume.  The volunteer work does not have to be in your field. For example, you may be the leader of your homeowners association.  This is relevant experience. The issue is that you want to show that you have leadership skills, regardless of where they were used.

3)      Shine a spotlight on relevant education. You may have recently received an MBA, for example.  That type of program will typically teach you leadership skills.  And if you have an executive MBA, you certainly want to put that information in a prominent spot on your resume.

4)      Showcase recent certifications. A current certification can mean a lot to employers.  Many universities offer executive management certifications.  This can mean a shorter path to the C-suite than the time it takes to earn a degree.  If you receive your certification from a prestigious university like Harvard, including this on the resume will often mean that you can land an executive position quickly.

These are some of the ways that you can stand out from the competition and show employers on paper that you are ready to make that move.
