What our customers are saying...
"I highly recommend Ms. Santiago for those who need help building their federal resume. I heard about Get Hired Inc. through my sister who attested to Ms. Santiago's expertise in resume review and consultation. After contacting Ms. Santiago, she quickly provided a time we could work on my resume. She pointed out several areas for improvement. She gave me specific examples of how my work experience should be phrased, and identified buzz words I could use that would help my resume stand out to hiring managers. I valued her extensive knowledge in the federal hiring process, and it has since changed my understanding of the application process. One month after applying to the federal position through USAJobs, I got an interview, as well as the job!

“Ms. Santiago’s career counseling/guidance/advice was very instrumental in helping me to feel more confident going into my job interview and salary negotiation. She didn’t just offer the same old “sage” advice that you hear from other so-called experts, Ms. Santiago listened to me and my professional fears, missteps and interview faux pas and then proceeded to develop a customized profile. She did not use a one technique fits all method – she recognizes that every person is an individual and functions as such in any given situation. She honed in on my strengths and characteristics and used them to work with me to develop the tools that I used to navigate the interview process with skill and confidence Ms. Santiago provides more than professional career counseling, she gently showed me the way to make professional lifestyle changes that I have applied in my personal as well as in my professional life. “

“My meeting with Cheryl totally gave me the confidence that I needed to walk into my interview, and knock it out of the park! She gave me insight into some of the subtle things that I do with my body that I didn’t even realize. We also went through negotiating techniques and what I needed to do to get the salary that I deserve.
Aside from the coaching services that she provided me, Cheryl really made me feel comfortable during our session and that was REALLY important to me. She also gave me honest and undiluted feedback. I think that this service is a no brainer for anyone who is looking to secure a job in this competitive market.”
–Shayo O., Health Consulting Professional
“For many of us, job interviews can be stressful and intimidating. Going through this process alone can be discomforting and counterproductive, so it ‘s important to have a strong support system to rely on. Cheryl Santiago’s interview coaching not only provided me with much needed support, but played a major role in helping me find a job just three months after being laid off.
Her extensive work experience as a high level executive has provided her with an understanding of what hiring officials are looking for in candidates. I am proof that her coaching methods produce results.”
