Here is What Cheryl Can Do For You

It was a pleasure to work with Cheryl during my job transition. I found her to be extremely knowledgeable and thorough and she helped guide me through a difficult transition in my life. Her work to revitalize my resume, cover letter, and LinkedIn content was spectacular. I highly recommend her.


Chief Operating Officer

Cheryl is the professional you want to develop your resume, cover letter and LinkedIn profile. She was able to consolidate a number of documents into a precise and carefully crafted resume for me after a single phone call. I’m very impressed with her work and her advise regarding the best use of the resume to get the desired results. Cheryl will work hard for you to achieve the same end.


Chief Operating Officer

I was referred to Cheryl several years ago as a resource to assist with my job search. She helped me update my resume to follow the latest trends in resume writing along with usage of key words. She also assisted with my LinkedIn profile and sent my cover letter and resumes to top recruiters across the US. Years later she assisted me again with my resume and LinkedIn profile. I highly recommend Cheryl for your help with job search tools!


Chief Financial Officer

Cheryl is truly outstanding in her services. I quickly received major lucrative offers within weeks after Cheryl finished my resume. Cheryl’s talents in writing my LinkedIn information quickly attracted my profile to industries I never expected to focus on my background. Her fees are very reasonable for the detailed high quality results that I came to me. Cheryl is a true service professional. You will not be disappointed!


Board Director

As a former member of the United States Military and Department of Defense contractor, I could “speak” the military really well. However, translating “military” to “corporate” proved to be difficult since I never had any experience with the civilian side of employment. I was directed to Cheryl, who immediately contacted me and conveyed a phased approach on how to make myself more marketable by translating my military experience to civilian employment. After our interview, she immediately went to work and less than a week later she produced sent me her recommendations and approach to the second phase. I am immensely happy with her and the thought, care, detail, and creativity she provided were outstanding. I highly recommend her services and you will not be disappointed with your investment.


Director |Operations Lead

I was referred to Cheryl by my mentor. My recent experience working with Cheryl was amazing. I would recommend her services and guidance to anyone who is ready to take the next step in their career. Sometimes you may not realize just how much you have accomplished in your career. Interviewing with Cheryl was an eye opening experience for me. She is not only talented with reconstructing resumes that speaks to your experience, she is able to help develop your LinkedIn site and prepare you for that next big interview. I took the time to do executive coaching with Cheryl. Ironically, the next week I was called for a phone interview and at least three or four topics of what she and I spoke about was asked on the phone interview. I was prepared. Thank you Cheryl for your guidance. I appreciate your personal development strategies. I would recommend your coaching and services to anyone looking to advance their career.
