Cheryl Simpson

Hi, my name is Cheryl Simpson, and I help job seekers to cut their search length from 12 months (the US average) to 2 to 4 months.

Dear Job Seeker and Career Transitioner: Whether you are presently employed, preparing for an anticipated layoff, or positioning yourself for your next career move, you need the right tools to get the job done. In today's competitive market, where literally thousands of applicants apply for the same positions and employers/recruiters/job boards use databases to analyze and screen your resume, if you don't use the right tools, you're taking yourself out of the employment game. As a career management professional, executive resume writer, and career/job search/LinkedIn coach with more than 25 years of experience in the industry, I know what it takes to land a job faster than your peers: stellar tools (an exceptional resume and cover letter), paired with the knowledge to use them wisely. The latest statistics indicate that job searches are lasting 12 months or more on average. But they don't have to - yours doesn't have to - if you take the time and energy to invest in your own future. A visually stunning resume, concise achievement-driven content, and industry-focused key words are critical in the competitive 2011 job market, but just as important, if not more so, is the know-how to leverage social networking tools such as LinkedIn, which is, after all, the #1 way that employers and recruiters source and research candidates for their open positions. I CAN HELP YOU TO HELP YOURSELF: ✔ Visit for your complimentary resume and LinkedIn review. Let me show you what's working & not working in your online & offline branding. ✔ Sign up for my complimentary LinkedIn Makeover workshop launching in May, 2011. GET MORE INTERVIEWS: ✔ "Mark’s resume looks great. Very strong visual appeal. Absolutely love the Career Branding statement…right on target. Great use of key words. My recruiting software quadrupled in the key words column old version vs. new." Cheryl Simpson, ACRW, COPNS, G3
