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!

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.”

LinkedIn is a great tool for job seekers and networkers.  With its millions of users that include employers and headhunters, it is a go-to resource for professionals and executives who want to advance their careers.  But with all the capabilities of LinkedIn for finding new opportunities, many users make a huge mistake which can mean the difference between accomplishing their goals on LinkedIn or not.

So what is this mistake that millions of LinkedIn users are making?  It is so simple that it should be obvious, but it isn’t.  It has to do with the professional headline.  LinkedIn automatically defaults to your current job title for your headline.  Most people never bother to change it, not realizing that they are missing a valuable opportunity to distinguish themselves from other people in their field on this very important social networking platform.

You may be wondering why the professional headline is so important.  Think about this.  Every time you interact on LinkedIn, your professional headline appears.  Right below your name is that headline.  So if you don’t change the default setting for the headline, you miss a golden opportunity to tell employers about you.  The default headline typically says more about your most recent employer than it does about you.

Here is a typical default professional headline, “Director of Human Resources, ABC Corporation.”  That doesn’t necessarily add value to your profile.  But if you were to say, “Human Resources Executive who builds partnerships with other executives in the organization to engage employees in the mission of the organization,” that is a value-added statement.  It immediately tells prospective employers what contribution you make to a company.

So take advantage of this prime real estate on your profile.  It could mean that more people click through to your profile and reach out to you.  And it also means that you can define for employers what you bring to the table in just a few words.
