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.”

5 RED FLAGS THAT YOUR CAREER IS GOING IN THE WRONG DIRECTION

At the beginning of 2018 it is worth your while to evaluate your career.  Is your career on track?  If not, why not?  And what can you do about it?

Here are some indicators that your career is not going in the right direction:

1)      You have stagnated. Being stagnant means more than just not getting promoted.  It also means that you are no longer growing at the job.  There are no new challenges.  Everything is just ho-hum.  You can do your work with your eyes closed.  On the surface it may appear that there is nothing wrong with this picture.  You are receiving a paycheck, and you do your work.  But there is always the possibility that you could become irrelevant at work because you may appear to be just coasting.

2)      You have stopped updating your skills. This goes hand in hand with stagnation.  By not taking the initiative to update your skills whether the company supports you in this effort or not, you run the very real risk of becoming obsolete.  Every field is dynamic, and if you are not keeping up with the changes, you could well be left behind.

3)      You’re gritting your teeth every day when you go to work. If you are making yourself go to work every day without a plan to improve things, your career is not on the right track.  There is probably a toxic environment that is making you hate going to work.  While it is not recommended that you just quit your job, it is recommended that you come up with an exit plan.  Although obviously there are no perfect situations when it comes to work, you can probably find a better work environment that won’t take a heavy toll on you over time.

4)      You no longer receive kudos at work. This is dangerous.  If you used to receive kudos for the work that you did, but that is no longer the case, you need to take a good, hard look at the reasons for this.  If it is simply a matter of you getting a new boss who doesn’t like to give kudos, that is one thing.  But if you have the same boss, and this person’s attitude towards you has changed, “Watch out!”  Or if you have a new boss who clearly has different priorities and doesn’t seem to want you to be part of the team, again, there is trouble brewing.

5)      You know that you’re in the wrong career, but you’re afraid to do anything about it. It can be scary to change careers, especially if you are mid- to late-career, and you have lots of financial commitments.  But at a minimum, you should explore what it would take to change careers.  Instead of staying in a field that you have no passion for, research the career that you are interested in to find out how viable it is to maintain your commitments and still follow your passion.  Until you research all the aspects of making a change, you don’t know if your assumptions regarding a career change are accurate or not.
