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.”

5 Really Bad Excuses For Not Having A Career Coach

Perhaps you have heard that you should have a career coach, but you have pooh-poohed the idea.  You may feel that you are doing perfectly fine by yourself, and you don’t need to spend the money on professional assistance.  But that decision may be costing you more than you think.

Here are some of the excuses that people use to talk themselves out of getting the career management assistance that they need:

1) I don’t want to tell someone else my business. How can you get help if you don’t open up?  If you are struggling with managing your career or with finding another job, a good career coach can give you sound advice and keep you from getting tunnel vision.  A good career coach can also give you objective feedback that you would not otherwise have.

2) Something will change soon. Depending on external circumstances as a career strategy is not a good career move.  Hoping that your boss will promote you or that some recruiter will appear out of the blue to save you from your career rut is risky business.  Although these things do happen sometimes, waiting for them to happen could mean waiting in vain.  Crafting a strategic career management plan with a career coach is a much better option.

3) My company is looking out for me. Are they?  Most companies are looking out for themselves, not their workers.  Putting your career destiny in the hands of your company can be dangerous.  Even if you happen to be in a really good situation at this point in your career, who knows what will happen tomorrow?  Your company could go through a merger, and you could find yourself in a totally different company than the one that you are in now.  By working with a career coach you can be proactive, and not put yourself totally at the mercy of your company.

4) I don’t know who to trust. It certainly is true that not all career coaches are the same.  You may have a good experience with one and a disastrous experience with another.  That is why you need to do your due diligence.  Just because there are some bad apples when it comes to career coaches is not a good reason to give up on all career coaches.  You have to do your research and find one who is a good fit for you.

5) What can a career coach tell me that I don’t already know? A skilled career coach will be current in the field and will be able to give you career guidance that you would not have on your own.  A career coach can guide you through the maze of a changed job search landscape, assisting you with maximizing your network (both on and offline), exploring your career options in depth, and helping you negotiate for what you are worth in the marketplace.

So what’s your excuse?  Call a career coach today to find out what you are missing.  Call 877-743-9521 now!
