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.”

Theranos, Blockbuster, Enron, Compaq.  What do all these companies have in common?  They all went bust.  But they didn’t go down without warning.  With your career future to protect, you don’t want to be caught off guard should your company suffer a similar fate.  So how do you know if your company is in trouble?

Here are some signs to pay attention to:

Cash flow problems. When a company begins to have significant cash flow problems over an extended period of time, employees need to pay attention.  It could mean that the company is unraveling, but the company is not likely to tell employees this.

Bad press. Even though many companies may receive bad press at times, if the bad press is unrelenting, the company may not be able to survive the onslaught of bad news.  Bad news over a sustained period of time can kill companies that may have previously had a good reputation.

Unethical behavior. Unethical behavior can also kill a company.  Although it is not necessarily the kiss of death, it is a signal that employees should not miss.  When unethical behavior is widespread throughout the company, it can lead to bad press.  And if it is a situation where Congress feels the need to investigate, it could mean the end of the company.  (Think Enron.)

Poor reputation. When a company develops a bad reputation amongst its customers, venders, and the general public, it could be a sign that the company is going downhill and may not last much longer.

And here are some suggested strategies for how to plan an exit:

Take inventory of the marketability of your skills. Before you start looking for new employment, take stock of what you have to offer prospective employers.  You may need to obtain a certification or acquire a new skill in order to be competitive in the marketplace.

Secretly start your job search. Even though you plan to leave, it’s not wise to let your current company know.  It’s best to start your search before your name becomes associated with your company’s bad image.  Start applying to job openings and networking cautiously with your contacts.
