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.”

INTERVIEWING THE INTERVIEWER

It’s obvious that at the interview that the interviewer is interviewing the interviewee.  But there is also usually an opportunity for the interviewee (you) to interview the interviewer (the employer).  This golden opportunity comes at the end of the interview when the interviewer finally asks, “Do you have any questions?”

This question seems benign enough, but it is more than it seems on the surface.  For one thing, it is a chance to impress the interviewer with some well thought out questions.  Secondly, it is an opportunity to ask questions that help you determine whether or not this is going to be a good fit for you.

Let’s start with some good questions that you can pose to the interviewer:

Questions You Can Ask the Interviewer

  • Could you please describe the ideal candidate for this job for me?
  • What are the company’s strengths and weaknesses compared to its competition?
  • What would you consider to be the most important aspects of this job?
  • What types of skills do you not already have onboard that you’re looking to fill with a new hire?
  • Could you please describe your management style for me?
  • What are the next steps in the interview process?

Also, interviewees can really impress interviewers if they ask questions based on the research that they have done on the company.  Here are some examples:

  • I read that your company is rolling out a new product next month.  Could you tell me how that new initiative will impact this position?
  • I understand that your company just acquired XYZ company.  Will the person in this position be involved in integrating the acquired company into this organization?
  • I am very impressed with your company’s values statement.  Could you please tell me how those values are measured within this organization?

These types of questions show that you are really interested in the job and that you have gone the extra mile to find out more about the company than is typical.

So the next time the interviewer asks you, “Do you have any questions?” you should be ready with questions that demonstrate your knowledge of the organization as well as with questions that give you insight into what type of boss you will have and what type of organization you will be working for.
