Alejandra Herrera, Marketing Professional

“After transitioning from my former employer and struggling to get offers, I connected with Sheryl Dawson for assessment and coaching support — I am so glad I did as my job search turned into a marathon! Initially Harrison’s Career Assessment provided insight into my strenths and improved communication of them through my resume, connections and interviews. As a marketing and communications professional with several years’ experience, when it came to articulating my core competencies and value proposition I appreciated the value of a deeper understanding of my behavioral preferences. Sheryl’s questions helped me refocus and target opportunities aligned with my best fit. Job Search: The Total System and Sheryl’s coaching provided resume, cover letter, strategy and process support to prepare me for the long haul. I realized that practice and networking were essential to learning to sell myself; stretching beyond my comfort zone, I enlisted mentors and added certifications, all designed to build my confidence. Sheryl’s timely check-ins challenged me to try various techniques and encouraged me to persevere. I have landed a great opportunity in a new industry with a global organization that advances my career. I highly recommend Sheryl’s experience, insight, and personal coaching to anyone in transition. What I learned not only sustained my job search, but provided a new mind set for ongoing success!”

Rebecca Johansson, Parent of Graduate/Young Professional

“My son Boyce was inspired by a HS history teacher to pursue a similar career. After graduating with a BA in history and anthropology minor, he sought his teaching certificate. Hitting a roadblock when local school budget cuts limited job opportunities, he secured a position in retail sales. While experiencing success for a couple years, he realized there was no career advancement path; a layoff amplified his discouragement. Having known Sheryl Dawson for many years, I reached out for her help. Sheryl recommended the Harrison Career Assessment, resume support and Job Search: The Total System. Sheryl’s coaching and assessment made a big difference in my son’s focus. The comprehensive assessment review revealed his optimal career fit and the potential need for a master’s degree to leverage his core strengths. I’m glad Boyce accepts that secondary education is not his best fit, as I had grave concerns the field would be satisfying long term. As a parent I deeply appreciate Sheryl’s help – my son now has a solid career and job search plan, an A+ resume, and renewed confidence in his short-term job search, as well as his long-term goals. Sheryl’s fee is very reasonable given the transformation in my son’s prospects now and for his future!”
