What Clients Have to Say about Working with Sherry
"Sherry excels at developing an individual approach based on the needs of her clients. She was very thorough in understanding my professional experience and career goals.

Mid-career transitioner / job applicant
"Sherry guided me through the intimidating and overwhelming process of changing career paths while teaching me the real life skill sets I use in my current position. She was a great listener and was able to take my goals and career ideas and fit them into an individualized set of steps that led me to accepting the exact position I was imagining for myself. If you are struggling to make a career change or just don’t know exactly what to do next, Sherry is the person to turn to. Despite my specialized area of work (music) Sherry was more than able to guide me through the resume writing, application & interview processes given her background and extensive knowledge of the professional world."
Early career builder / job searcher
"As a professional, Sherry went above and beyond in order to accommodate my busy schedule and managed to always work directly with me despite my own time constraints.

I feel comfortable, confident and encouraged, and I owe all of that to her coaching."

Relocating mid-career transitioner
"Sherry became a real partner after several months of job search left me anxious and demoralized. As an accomplished mid-career professional returning to the workforce after a brief absence, everything was much more difficult than I anticipated! Sherry quickly familiarized herself with my field and provided tailored support, from assessing my search strategy, to taking my resume up a notch, to editing cover letters on a fast turnaround, to providing technology tutorials, to researching prospective employers, to conducting mock interviews via SKYPE, and more. Just as important, she offered emotional support around work-life balance and helped to distinguish what was and wasn't in my control in today's challenging job search landscape. Within three months of our work together, I had a series of interviews for attractive positions, and two offers including the one that could be described as my 'dream job'."

"Sherry provided customized career advice that improved my ability to seek out, apply for, interview, and get jobs in ways that I wasn't even aware of! Because she is an experienced business professional with a successful career in industry, she deeply understands the language and culture of the modern job market. Beyond ensuring that her clients create a career development strategy and work a job-search plan, Sherry is well positioned to provide advice that helps them become more capable, goal-driven, and satisfied professionals."
2008 DC-based grad
"Sherry's friendly, professional, and knowledgeable support of our son during his job search has been invaluable for both our son and us as parents. She helped him jumpstart the process by helping him set goals for himself and to research companies he'd like to work for that would suit his personality, skill level, and interests. Of course she helped with writing the resume, framing past experience into transferable skills. But Sherry also helped him have a realistic understanding of how long the process might take, prepare for interviews and follow-up, keep up the momentum, and maintain a positive attitude even after setbacks and disappointments.
Our son's upbeat, confident, and positive attitude was so noticeable to us when we would talk with him on the phone. It was a marked change from the past. It was such a relief to know that he had someone so knowledgeable on his side guiding him through this challenging process. THANK YOU SHERRY!

"Sherry provided a wealth of information about the job market, and has had a lot to do with transforming my daughter into this very focused and forward-looking young adult. The best part for me is that Sherry has taken a lot of the anxiety out of the process which has been so beneficial for our entire family!"
Upstate NY parent
"Sherry has played an integral role leading me through my job search. As a new grad, navigating all the nuances of the job market and learning how to best position myself for jobs I wanted to pursue was a big black box. Working with Sherry gave me the tools I needed to accomplish this successfully - all via SKYPE and email, while on opposite coasts. Her support allowed me to turn a bleak job market into one full of opportunity. Thank you, Sherry!"
2011 CA grad
"Sherry first provided excellent guidance in revamping my resume, helping me to clearly present my previous experience, and to effectively communicate my particular strengths and talents as a professional. Beyond that, she proved an invaluable resource in helping me to navigate the networking, communications, and negotiations that are all part of the job search process -- including how to gracefully turn down interviews once I had found the right position!"

"Today's young people are facing a very complex and changing world. It has been extremely helpful to have Sherry coach our daughter onto a practical path toward her career aspirations."
Parent of 2008 grad
"Before I started working with Sherry I knew of my interests and passions, but only after our sessions did I begin to understand how to direct these toward choosing a career path. Sherry worked closely with me to create a compelling resume and breakthrough cover letters, and to prepare for interviews. We strateagized which life experiences, internships, volunteer work, and professional positions I should seek to develop my skill set and prepare for a career that I have researched, and am happy with."
2010 NY-area grad
"In a historically difficult job search environment, my college daughter was unsure of the direction she should take after graduation. Sherry has been an invaluable guide, working with her to showcase her skills and strike just the right tone. I am convinced that my daughter got invited to interview because of the quality of her resume and letters, and the confidence that Sherry helped to instill."
