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.”

5 WAYS TO JOB SEARCH OUTSIDE THE JOB BOARDS BOX

You may have found out through experience by now that job boards are not the most effective job search method, but it is the most used method. According to the Wall Street Journal, only 13% of jobs are filled through job boards, but job boards are most job seekers’ primary job search method.

So how do you break out of the job boards box? If you want to diversify your job search methods, what else can you do? Here are some suggestions:

3 WAYS TO PROTECT YOURSELF WHILE JOB SEARCHING

A job search these days of course includes being online. No doubt you will respond to positions on job boards and probably post your resume on job boards as well. And of course employers expect you to be on a social media site like LinkedIn.

But never forget that being online exposes you to danger in ways that printed copies of the newspaper and snail mail did not. As you are searching for a new position, you need to be careful that your information does not fall into the wrong hands.

DON’T THINK YOU NEED A RESUME? THINK AGAIN!

As a Certified Professional Resume Writer, I hear it all the time. Some super loyal worker is now scrambling to put a resume together after not needing one for 10, 15, or 20 years. This person was very stable and dedicated to the employer, but alas, the employer was not dedicated to the worker. And so there comes a parting of the ways, and now this loyal, unemployed worker is struggling with searching for a job in an entirely new job search landscape. The resume that used to work in days gone by is now totally passé, and the person who never needed a resume before now doesn’t know how to write one for today’s economy.

If you are feeling pretty secure in your job and with your employer and feel that you don’t need a resume, think again!

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.
