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.”

Even though some people think that things just “happen” in terms of their career, that is not usually the case.  Generally speaking, there are warning signals to let you know that you may need to make some readjustments to keep your career on course.

If you want to avoid a career crash, it will behoove you to pay attention to the following signs:

  1. You no longer get plum assignments. If you used to be the go-to person for high-visibility, high-reward assignments, but that is no longer the case, be forewarned.  Your days at your current organization may be numbered.  It Is very likely that you are either no longer seen as a high potential employee and/or you are being targeted for a layoff.  The best recommendation is for you to start investigating why you are no longer receiving these assignments and try to get back into management’s good graces or you can start pounding the virtual pavement to find your next job.  But rest assured, things are not looking good for you where you are.
  1. Main parts of your job are being reassigned to other employees. This is another really bad sign.  If pieces of your job are being redistributed to your co-workers, and those tasks are not being replaced with higher level ones, watch out.  It is almost certain that management is trying to ensure that others can take on your responsibilities after they let you go.
  1. You are just coasting. At one point in your tenure in your current organization, you were highly motivated, but now you don’t put forth your best effort.  You may think that no one notices, but that is a big risk to take.  Chances are good that someone is noticing, and when it comes time for layoffs, you may be seen as deadwood.
  1. You are unable to meet established goals for your position. This may or may not be your fault.  In some cases, management may set goals that are completely unrealistic and unattainable.  Or, it could be a situation where the goals are attainable, but you don’t have the skills to reach them.  In either case, trouble is looming on the horizon.  Even if you are unable to meet your goals because of a lack of resources or because management is unrealistic, it still doesn’t look good for you.  Start making plans to land somewhere else quickly.
  1. The handwriting is on the wall, but you refuse to see it. You may know that your situation falls into one of the categories listed above, but you don’t want to make a move, so you ignore the obvious.  Many people who I have talked to who have been laid off or fired confess after the fact that the signs were there, but they did not want to see them.  It’s better to be honest where yourself as far as where your career stands than to be blindsided by something that was clearly coming down the pike.
