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.”

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.

If you are stuck in your career, you may be tempted to blame everyone else but yourself. After all, the economy still isn’t great, and many companies are reluctant to hire or promote existing staff. But in spite of the truthfulness of these statements, it still may be worth your while to look within. There may be things that you are doing that are holding you back. The bad economy may not be the only reason.

It’s doubtful that you would go into an interview with the intention to fail, especially since interviews are difficult for most people to land these days. However, sometimes job candidates unintentionally set themselves up to fail. The worst part about it is that they often have no idea what went wrong. They may attribute their lack of success to stiff competition for the position or bias on the part of the interviewer. And of course any of these things can be contributing factors. But you need to make sure as a job seeker that you have done everything within your power to convey to the interviewer that you are the right person for the job.

The word like has taken on a new meaning with the advent of Facebook. Virtually every site you visit on the Internet gives you the option of liking the page or liking the article. But when it comes to a job interview, likeability takes on much more significance. There is little to no risk involved with liking a webpage, but if employers like you, you are likely to land the job. Conversely, if they don’t like you, you may not get the job even if you are highly qualified.
