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.”

Do you think your interview went well?  Or are you really not sure.  Of course everybody wants to interview well and come across as polished and well-prepared.  But if you are wondering if there are any indications that your interview actually did go well, then read on.

Here are some signs that you probably aced your interview:

1)      The interview lasted longer than scheduled. Given interviewers’ busy schedules, it’s unlikely that they will spend more time with you than necessary unless they really like you.  A longer interview is usually a positive sign.

2)      The interviewer’s body language indicated that he or she was very interested in your answers. If the interviewer leans forward, smiles, nods, that can be a good sign.  Conversely, if the interviewer looks bored and seems uninterested, that usually doesn’t bode well for you.

3)      You were asked about your availability for a second interview. This is another good indicator.  The interviewer typically won’t want to know about your availability for a second interview if the interviewer does not intend to call you back for a second interview.

4)      You were introduced to your potential new co-workers. This is something else that you can be happy about.  This indicates that the interviewer may well see you as a part of the team already.

5)      The interviewer asked for your references. This is very positive.  Interviewers don’t ask for your references unless you are under serious consideration.

6)      The interviewer wanted to know how soon you would be able to start. If the interviewer asks you this, there is a high probability that you are at the top of the list of candidates.

7)      The interviewer tried to sell you on the job. If the interviewer starts touting all the wonderful benefits of working at the organization, this is a good sign that things are going well.  The interviewer may mention free parking, the generous health insurance package, 401K matching, or other benefits.

8)      The interviewer introduces you to higher-ups in the company (and they weren’t on the list of interviewers). If you meet people higher on the chain of command than your interviewer, this is good news.  The interviewer probably wants to get these managers’ take on you.

9)      They invite you to follow up. If an interviewer goes out of his or her way to give you a business card (when you didn’t ask for one) and tells you to follow up if you have any questions, this too is a very positive sign that you are a top candidate for the position.
