What My Wonderful Clients Have To Say

“Chellie has helped me find my passion and purpose again. She gives you straight talk and great advice. She’s helped me find the joy in what I’m doing again.”

– Casey Rogers (Area Liaison for U.S. Rep. Martha Roy)

Alex H. (Business Degree)

“Experience was a huge roadblock for me. No one wanted to hire me without 3-5 years of experience for an “entry-level” position. I had searched for two years before using these tactics. Now I have a job in my field.”

Alyssa M. (Finance Degree)
“The biggest roadblock I had was reaching out following preliminary phone interviews. I would never hear back. They didn’t give me any information on how to follow up. I wish I’d had the templates (in Successfully Ever After) and information before I started interviewing.”
Pamela F. (Communications Degree)
“100+ applications later and I was no closer to a job than when I started until I found Successfully Ever After.”
Dallas C. (Marketing Degree)
“I learned how to use my network. I found my first job out of college because of a sorority sister. I also learned the value of groups on Facebook and LinkedIn. They are a great resource. Once you make connections there, they are usually willing to make introductions and referrals.”

Kerry Ahrend, M.S., PMP (Author of Project Career Quest: Navigating the Journey...)
Finding a job in today’s competitive, ever-churning, ever-changing job market is no easy feat. The job-search process has become extremely complex but something you must learn to master if you are to land meaningful employment and advance your career. Social media plays a big role in how others see you and will have a significant impact on whether you are seen as a viable and desirable candidate for a job. Recruiters and hiring managers search daily for candidates online, and so, if you want to be noticed and get an interview with your targeted company, you need to get on the radar screen in a positive, engaging, and enticing way. Chellie Phillips’ book, Get Noticed, Get Hired, provides insight, strategies, and resources to help you create a positive brand that will get you noticed by influencers and hiring managers. Your professional image can begin as early as high school based on what you post on social media and can either help or hurt you. Colleges and employers will look to social media to formulate their opinion about your character, your background, how you spend your time, how you relate to others, and any other insight they can ascertain about your personal brand. If what they see aligns with their values and brand, you may get an interview; if it doesn’t, you will be eliminated as a potential candidate. So, take control of your brand by following the advice and wisdom that Chellie shares in her book so you will get noticed and get hired!
Sandy Brantley (Author of Get The Duck Out Of My Pond)

Louise Elliott

Career Coach

“Even though most people have a job, or will want a job at some point, I’ve yet to meet anyone who is a professional job searcher. Why? Because embarking on a job search is not something that’s done every day, and the methods and rules for a successful job search are constantly changing. Yet how you navigate the process can have a big impact on one of the most important decisions you’ll make in your lifetime—sometimes multiple times—so it’s critically important that you get it right. Get Noticed, Get Hired should be one of the first tools that you add to your job search toolkit. Chellie is a wise and experienced guide that can help you to understand how to start the process, set yourself up for success, and get noticed for the opportunities that are an ideal match for your skills and experience. Don’t waste your time—and potentially damage your career—by going it alone. Use the resources shared in this book and learn from Chellie’s advice. You’ll not only be able to connect with the job of your dreams, but you’ll also have the tools to manage your personal brand and grow your career in the future!”

Jennifer McClure

“Get Noticed, Get Hired has everything you’ll need in one place to land your ideal job. This book walks you through job hunting strategies, building a power resume, crafting a personal career brand and optimizing your LinkedIn profile. Follow the steps Chellie lays out and you’ll be the job candidate all the hiring managers and recruiters remember. I believe so strongly in Chellie’s expertise, that I signed my son up for the online course. Since working through the course and directly with Chellie over the past few weeks, I’m happy to share that he just received his first interview request and another company has requested his resume. Those are texts from a college senior that a dad loves to get. Thanks Chellie!”
