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.”

If you have lost your job, your first response may be to mourn.  After all, that was your livelihood, and you don’t know how long it may take to find another comparable position.

But even though it was not your choice to lose the job, as the saying goes, “With every gain there is loss, and with every loss there is gain.”  So what might you gain from what might otherwise be seen as a loss?

Here are a few ideas:

1)      This may be the opportunity to tap into your passion. If you were not at all enthused about your job, now that you have to look for a new job anyway, you can channel your energies into finding something that not only pays the bills, but also is something that you are passionate about.  You might not have made a real effort to find something enjoyable before, but now you can make that your focus.

2)      This may have been the motivation that you always needed to find a better situation. Perhaps you had been living with a toxic boss or you had been severely underpaid for a while.  Being free of your old job gives you a fresh opportunity to look for an improvement over your previous work environment.

3)      If you have been given a severance package, you may have enough of a financial cushion to take a much-needed break. If you are like many workers, you have probably put a lot of time and effort into your job, at the expense of your own well-being.  You might not have taken time for yourself while you working for your old employer, but now you can take a little breather.  Of course you don’t want to overdo it because you don’t want a big gap on your resume, but a little rest and relaxation could be just what the doctor ordered.

4)      If you find a job quickly, the severance package can give you an unexpected windfall. The severance package was given to you with the intent of tiding you over until you find another job.  But you shorten the time of your job search, you can bank that extra money and save it for another rainy day.

5)      You can use some of your free time to reconnect with your family. Again, if you have invested a lot of time into your job, it may have taken a toll not only on your general well-being, but also on some much-needed intimacy with your family.  Since you can set your own hours for your job search, why not schedule some family time?  After all, you may not have the luxury of this much free time again for some time to come.
