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.”

What do you want your legacy to be?

This is very personal. Only you can decide what you want your legacy to be and what price you are willing to pay to make it happen. If you don’t decide for yourself where you ultimately want to be, the decision will be made for you. You will end up ceding control over your future to your employer and probably feel like a victim as a result. It is very likely that you will take the path of least resistance.

When is enough enough? At what point do you say goodbye to your employer and find another position? If you have been overworked and underpaid because your company can afford to treat you that way in a bad economy, you may be asking yourself these questions.

Being let go from a job is devastating for some and liberating for others. For those who have put their heart and soul into a company and thought they would retire there, being laid off can be a body blow to their self confidence and can make them question their employment prospects. For others, being laid off can be a blessing in disguise because it can force them to reassess their options and contemplate a different career path than they would have otherwise chosen had they not been let go.

With high unemployment, intense competition for jobs, and the threat of downward mobility instead of upward mobility, it pays to know what your secret weapon is against unemployment. It’s so simple that you might overlook it. It’s your network. Not just your network of friends and neighbors, although they can be helpful, but your professional network is an effective buffer against joining the unemployment line. Or at least reducing the amount of time that you spend there.

Several years ago I was facilitating a career development class where I was discussing goal setting. I said to the class, “Setting goals is like making New Year’s resolutions. You decide that this year you will lose weight. You start off going to the gym and eating better, but around February or March, what happens?” One of the participants answered enthusiastically, “Next year!”

It’s always a good sign when an interviewer asks you at the end of the interview for your references. Employers don’t waste their time checking references if they are not interested in you as a candidate. Since employers usually check references as a last step before making you an offer, it’s important that you don’t neglect this crucial step.
