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.”

By now you should know that resumes are not usually seen initially by a real person. They are scanned into a database, and then a recruiter searches the database (ATS) by keyword to find the perfect candidate.

That means that no matter how dazzling your resume looks, the ATS will not be impressed. When the recruiter does the search, the only thing that matters is whether or not the ATS decides that you make the cut.

You may have heard by now that you should have keywords on your resume. These keywords are core competencies that describe different aspects of your skill set. As a certified resume writer I find that even though some people who write their own resumes try to include keywords, they often miss the mark in terms of what employers are actually looking for.

Your resume is one of the first things an employer sees from you, and therefore you want to make it perfect. You have done your research and have seen the common mistakes and myths out there. You eliminated the objective from the top of your resume, used professional language instead of slang to promote your past successes, and triple checked for any spelling errors. While you may think that your resume is perfect because you nailed those basics and avoided errors that weaken your resume, there are other frequently overlooked items on a resume that could make or break your chances at landing an interview with the company of your dreams.
