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.”

A calculated risk can pay off handsomely. For example, if you take on a high-visibility project that you have the skills and the resources to accomplish, it can position you well to another step in your career. In the best case scenario, it could lead to a promotion. But conversely, there are risks that are not worth taking that can derail your career, temporarily or permanently.

Here are some career risks that you should not take:

Should Your Job Search Take a Holiday?

Many job seekers think there is no point to searching for a job during holiday season. After all, everyone knows that work tends to slow down around the holidays when companies are holding office parties and workers are out shopping for gifts.

But taking a break from your job search could be a big mistake. By not continuing your job search during this time, you could miss opportunities to network and to make yourself known to employers before January, which is when many employers get serious about hiring.

According to research, the number one reason that workers leave their jobs is because of their bosses. As the saying goes, “People don’t leave their jobs. They leave their bosses.”

You may wonder then if there is any way to determine at the job interview if the interviewer (your potential boss) will be someone that you want to work for or run from. After all, your boss has the potential to make or break you at work.

We have all heard the old adage about not burning bridges. This is especially true when it comes to your career. However, some people leave their jobs under less than favorable conditions. In some cases a layoff is really a cover for a firing. In other situations, the employee is given the choice to quit or be fired. And sometimes a worker has simply had enough and walks away without a real game plan for finding another job. Any one of these scenarios can cause a job seeker heartburn because it is almost inevitable that a potential employer will ask why the person left the previous employer.

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.
