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.”

Everyone wants a perfect interview, but as the old saying says, “The plans of mice and men oft go awry.” It is too easy to get rattled when things don’t go as planned, but how you react to a mishap can mean the difference between landing the job or being remembered as the person who flubbed the interview.

Here are some things that can go wrong in the interview as well as ways to rebound:

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.

Diana Nyad’s historic swim from Cuba to Florida drew international attention. It took five tries, but she finally reached her goal, her lifelong dream, to swim the 100 miles through jellyfish and shark-infested waters. At age 64 she accomplished what others much younger had not.

Swarmed by reporters, she was asked repeatedly what lessons she wanted to share with others. Her responses were very relevant to other areas of life that have nothing to do with endurance swimming. What did she learn? What is her supremely applicable advice that relates even to those who are trying to navigate a career through rough waters?

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.
