MOST JOB SEARCH PROGRAMS FEATURE ONE-SIZE-FITS-ALL CONTENT.
Yet, as a highly experienced professional, your learning needs are different. You wouldn't have succeeded in your career to date if you didn't already know a lot of things that younger professionals have yet to learn. You don't need to start over.
MOST JOB SEARCH PROGRAMS FOCUS ON TEACHING YOU EVERYTHING THEY THINK YOU NEED TO KNOW.
The average job search course aims to solve the broadest set of needs possible. But the very nature of your career means your job hunt will likely face different challenges and require different solutions. You don't need what every job seeker needs.
MOST JOB SEARCH PROGRAMS REQUIRE YOU TO LEARN AT THEIR PACE (NOT YOURS).
Your schedule is hectic and your life is full. You don't have endless hours available to relearn everything you already know about landing a job. Even when unemployed, you're swamped with to-dos. You don't need to be told how fast or slow you can learn.
MOST JOB SEARCH PROGRAMS TELL YOU RATHER THAN SHOW YOU HOW TO NETWORK.
Not everyone is a networking natural, so hearing that it is successful +86% of the time doesn't really help. Networking isn't a skill you can master by reading ~ you need to do it. You don't need to be told, you need to be shown how.
1 Quest. 8 Levels. 5 Missions per week.
Go slow or fast. Stop and go. Proceed at the "just right" pace even Goldilocks would like.
You can opt in or out of any mission or level.
Think of this as "Minimally Viable" learning ~ discover what you must know with no wasted mental space.
No assignment takes more than 1 hour to do.
Only have 30 minutes to do a little job searching? Quick, easy assignments will keep you moving forward while you complete key tasks.
Designed for maximum portability & flexibility.
Windows or Mac platforms, tablets, and smart phones are all welcome here. Go back and forth as you like.
Every mission has a map for you to follow.
Life is too busy to remember what you did last, so Hire Calling remembers for you. Pick right back up from any device.
Employ mini templates in round robin practices.
Networking is too important to wing it. I know of no other program that gives you live virtual practice so you can work out the kinks confidentially.
As a Career, Job Search, and LinkedIn Coach and a Master Resume Writer who specializes in serving mid-career, senior executive, and C-suite leaders, I've helped thousands of job seekers throughout my +35-year career. My expertise lies in the intersection between your career communications portfolio (your resume, LinkedIn profile, Value Proposition Letter, and networking tools) and your search strategy: What are the best ways to present your candidacy to target companies, influencers, or recruiters? I'm an expert in helping you to answer that question.
With 5, top-shelf industry certifications to my name and the honor of winning 22 global resume writing awards and nominations (TORIs), as well as hundreds of thought leadership articles, expert interviews (Forbes, Fast Company, U.S. News & World Report, and Yahoo! to mention but a few), and and publication in resume books, I know what senior executives in job hunt mode need to know to streamline their search.
A smart ~ and highly strategic job search ~ doesn't have to take months to execute. When you pair the right tools (resume, LinkedIn profile, executive bio, and so on) with the right search strategies, the result is magic: You find the opportunities you want in the time you need it happen.
Expert executive networking coaching delivered in 8 key topics, each containing 5 assignments. Delivered online & accessible 24/7 from any device.
Every lesson contains short video instructions and expert tips. You will see, hear, and read step-by-step how-tos so you both learn about and do the networking you need to do.
You'll have access to a private journal you can use for note-taking, ideas, or to receive private feedback from yours truly. Keep it private or allow me to follow your progress ~ it's your choice.
WENT FROM LAID OFF TO HIRED IN LESS THAN 3 MONTHS
“I hadn't had to job search in more than 10 years and didn't have the network I knew I needed. Cheryl showed me how to create what I needed and leverage those connections to open doors I didn't even know existed. I went from laid off to hired in less than 3 months and love my new job. And now I'm positioned for my next step up the ladder in 2-3 years."
Lucy Lee (VP of Operations)
HELPED ME STICK WITH MY SEARCH WITHOUT SACRIFICING FAMILY OR LIFE BALANCE
“As a Physician, Healthcare Executive, and busy Mom, I am chronically short on time. I knew I needed job search help, but wasn't sure I could squeeze it into my schedule. The small chunks of homework and the ability to proceed at my own pace helped me stick with my search without sacrificing my family or life balance. I'm thrilled with the help I received!"
Dr. Janet Williams (Senior Healthcare Executive)
ENABLED ME TO GET THE JOB I WANTED NEXT IN JUST UNDER 3.5 MONTHS
“Like most senior executives, I'm smart enough to know I don't know everything, especially when it comes to career search, so I turned to an expert. Cheryl's techniques and documents elevated my search and my brand and enabled me to get the job I wanted next in my career in just under 3.5 months. I strongly recommend her work and this program."
Christopher Duncan (CEO)
Regrettably, Hire Calling isn't for everyone.
Because Hire Calling is a digital product, I cannot refund any monies already paid, but if you complete all 40 missions and receive no interviews, I will convert your Hire Calling investment into 1:1 coaching and personally guide you forward.

Sign up for Hire Calling at any pricing level (see below) and your order will include these bonuses:
Access to the Hire Calling private Executive Job Search Discussion Group
I personally moderate all discussions so that I can provide value-added support to all Hire Calling enrollees. This group enables you to get your questions answered in between modules or Mastermind sessions (if you choose that option). Either way, you get the support you need.
40 Worksheets & Message Templates
These worksheets & templates will dramatically streamline your executive search. Custom-designed for senior executives, they will guide you to "package" your brand for all kinds of networking situations and communications (email, phone, and LinkedIn). Shortcuts galore!
Save 100s of Dollars on Optional Additional Services or Documents
Just by completing modules you will earn points you can use to save money on any additional coaching or documents you may need for your search. Resume? LinkedIn profile? Executive Bio? Every document is eligible for purchase via these Hire Calling Bucks.
Here are my replies to the questions I hear most frequently:
Hire Calling consists of 8 levels made up of 5 missions each. Each mission is designed to be completed within 1 hour or less ~ you should be able to finish all 5 lessons in 2-3 hours total. And, of course, you can do so in your own time and on your own schedule.
Just let me know and I will be happy to pause your program for you ~ no problem at all. And you can pick up and start over or pick up from where you left off at your convenience.
Since Hire Calling is structured in chunks rather than according to elapsed time, you have access to the program for a full 3 months from your date of enrollment. This allows you to stay in the program and repeat any missions you like as long as your program is active.
Once you click on the link below and process payment, you will receive instructions for getting started within minutes. You can then begin the program as soon as it suits you ~ 24/7/365.
Since this is a digital program and you cannot return the content, I cannot offer refunds. But I can make sure you receive the help you need to execute your search. I'll be happy to convert the balance of your investment into 1:1 coaching hours if you are unable to complete Hire Calling.
If your budget allows for 1:1 coaching and that is what you really need, then by all means go for it. But 1:1 coaching can be chaotic to schedule week after week, not to mention cost-prohibitive for the same level of support offered in Hire Calling, which is why I created it in the first place. I wanted everyone to have access to the kind of and extent of support they need to succeed in their job search, even if they don't have the $1000+ they would need to purchase an equivalent amount of 1:1 phone coaching.
If you plan or are already in an executive search and don't know what you need to know how to do your search "right," then you definitely need Hire Calling. If you don't know the best ways to network, how to get your foot in the door with target companies, or how to fully leverage your LinkedIn presence (or create one if you don't yet have one), then you definitely need Hire Calling. If you're still unsure, drop me at line at firstname.lastname@example.org so I can help you assess your readiness.
You will pay for your purchase via PayPal (you do not need to be a PayPal member to pay via credit or debit card; if you are a member, you can also pay via e-check or PayPal account) via 3 monthly payments. Payments 2 & 3 occur automagically ~ there's no need to take additional action once you purchase your initial Hire Calling membership.
