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.”

Your professional reputation is a very precious commodity. It can open doors for you. It can also close doors for you. Because it is so precious, you need to build it intentionally and guard it carefully. In order to do this, you need to think about your in-person network as well as your online network. How people in these venues perceive you can to a large degree determine your professional success.

Sometimes people contact me as a career coach because they need assistance with reentering the labor market after a break of several years. It can be challenging to get back into the game because job market is not what it used to be, and the job search has changed as a result of technology, especially social media.

Networking at get-togethers and professional association meetings is typically the playground of extroverts. Extroverts love meeting new people, so going to such events is something to anticipate. It’s a different story for introverts though. It’s not that introverts don’t like meeting new people. It’s just that they would prefer to meet them one at a time instead of all at once as is common in a group setting.

An article in USA Today states that two in five people say that they have gained weight at work. Your job can conspire against you to damage your health when you feel required to eat birthday cake for your co-workers or join everyone at the local restaurant for lunch. But even though you do need to be social, you should not do it at the expense of your health.

Even though it’s always best to leave a position when everyone is raving about you and wishes that you could stay, it’s not always possible. Sometimes the position does not work out, and your professional reputation may suffer as a result. It may be that you had a negative relationship with your boss. Or it could be that you had personal issues that spilled over to your work, and you were let go. Yet another possibility is that you took on a major project, and instead of you becoming the hero, the project failed miserably. Or perhaps you are in sales and you just did not make your numbers.

How important is work-life balance? What dangers do you encounter if life takes over your job, or the job takes over your life?

Taken to the absolute extreme, karoshi (death by overwork) can result from someone’s job taking over his or her life. This phenomenon happens so much in Japan that they coined the word karoshi to describe it.

When is the Right Time to Go Back for that Grad School Degree?

Career trajectories don’t always necessarily follow a straight upwards path from school to success. Sometimes they can zigzag a bit with their ups and downs, and quite honestly, this isn’t a bad thing at all, as we’ve discussed before. Your career is like a lot of other things in life with changing priorities and circumstances requiring you to adapt accordingly.
