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 Ways to Know that Your Interview is Going Downhill

There are nonverbal cues that a job interview is going well, and nonverbal cues that an interview is going badly.  Of course all job seekers want to believe that they interview well, and that the employer is as interested in them as they are in the employer.  But sometimes, despite your best efforts, the interview goes south.

But can you really get a read on the interview while it is in progress?  Here are some tips for determining whether or not you are making a good impression:

1)      The interviewer looks bored. This is not a good sign.  You definitely want the interviewer to appear interested in what you are saying.  If this is not the case, it could mean that you have not established rapport with the interviewer, which in turn could mean bad news for your candidacy.

2)      The interviewer looks at the clock repeatedly. Even though this in and of itself does not necessarily mean that the interviewer wants the interview to end quickly, there is a strong possibility that it means just that.  It’s possible that the interviewer just wants to make sure that the interview doesn’t run over time, but it can be rather unnerving for you as a candidate because it could signify that the interviewer is not interested in what you have to say.

3)      You are stumped on more than one question. This is a very bad sign.  You should be prepared for the interview even though you do not know exactly what questions you may be asked.  If you are struggling to answer more than one question, your chances of making a positive impression on the interviewer are low to nil.

4)      The interview does not take the entire time that was scheduled. This is generally taken to be a bad sign.  Usually, if the interviewer is very interested in you as a candidate, the interviewer will want to talk with you more, not less.

5)      You have a sinking feeling as you leave the interview. More often than not, your general feeling about the interview is correct.  If you leave the interview feeling that you didn’t do your best and that you didn’t connect well with the interviewer, that may well be the case.

If you have had a bad interview, take heart.  Thankfully, one interview is not likely to make or break your career.  The best thing to do is to increase your preparation for the next interview so that you learn from your mistakes.
