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.”

6 Steps to Get Hired by Your Dream Company

Is there a particular company that you want to work for?  You already know that the company’s mission and values are in alignment with yours, and you know it would be a dream come true to work for that company.  But how can you get hired there?  Is there any way to move this from being a dream to becoming reality?

Here are some steps that you can take to do just that:

1)      Stay abreast of posted openings on the company’s website. Even though many companies post their jobs on major job boards as well as their company’s site, there are some jobs that are only posted on the website, so it is a good idea to check what is available there.

2)      Set up a job alert on indeed.com for jobs available at the company. It’s also a good idea to be alerted when new jobs are posted at the company on major boards.  Since indeed.com aggregates job data from across the web, you can get notifications when such jobs are available.

3)      Follow the company on LinkedIn and Twitter. Stay informed of what is happening within the company on a regular basis.  Many companies post news about their companies on social media.  You can also respond to a post or tweet as is appropriate so that you can get noticed.

4)      Network with people inside the company. This is really a critical thing to do if you are serious about getting hired there.  Networking remains the number one job search method, so having inside contacts who can give you more information about the company and even information about the hiring manager in the department where you would like to work should be on your to-do list.

5)      Find people who will champion your cause inside the company. In addition to your networking efforts, you want to find people who can speak highly of you to the right people.  There is nothing like having someone who can give you a glowing recommendation inside your dream company.

6)      Set up informational meetings with hiring managers inside the company. By leveraging your network and internal champions, you can often get to a hiring manager directly.  Even if there is no posted opening, you can try to schedule informational meetings with hiring managers to talk about their needs.  You won’t be pressing them for a job, but you can use the time to find their pain points and leave a positive impression so that when an opening arises, you will be top of mind.
