Hi, I’m Cheryl.

I’m Canadian and have been living in Berlin for more than a decade. As the founder of Career Boost Germany, my mission is to help you move to Germany and find work.

I’ve seen the mistakes people make with their job applications, especially those who are new to Germany. I know that many people don’t know how to present themselves and struggle to secure job interviews. In reality, many people undersell themselves and tend to downplay how amazing they are and the unique value they bring.

I possess extensive knowledge and use fine-tuned methods to show you how to best showcase yourself in both your applications and interviews. With my help and support, you’ll be positioned to enter job interviews and salary negotiations with poise and confidence.

People have trusted me to assist them with their job search in Germany whether it’s through career coaching, job application reviews, and life in Germany guides.

I had a very favorable experience with Cheryl in this coaching session. She brought up some strong arguments and offered very helpful tips for the improvement of my cover letter. She provided a PDF with more detailed information on every aspect of my letter, including small details that I never thought needed improving. Now I feel much more confident with my job search and I’m confident that my letter is as strong as it can be

Her ability to view my professional history objectively allowed for precise adjustments and optimizations that I wouldn’t have identified on my own. I highly recommend Cheryl to anyone seeking to tailor their CV for the German market. With her assistance, I am confident that my job search will yield better results.
