Why Alison?

YOU’VE GOT THE EXPERIENCE.

LOVE YOUR WORK.

Alison Rakotonirina is a strategic writer who works with people searching for a fulfilling career. Whether you need help with your resume, your LinkedIn or other online profile, or explaining your business strategy, Alison takes your experience, skills, and passion and lays it out in a way that focuses, captivates, and captures your audience.

With over 20+ years progressive experience in hiring, training, interviewing and staff development, I know how to maximize your resume and LinkedIn profile to engage your target audience. On LinkedIn since 2005, I’ve watched the network grow and influence the field of resume writing and the overall career search process.

More than two-thirds of professionals find it difficult to talk about themselves and their work, and even more difficult to pinpoint “why they work.” Whether you are in career transition, a consultant, searching for your first job or even a seasoned sales professional, you likely find yourself lost and without words when it comes time to talk about yourself to accurately target your ideal position or client.

Your job is not separate from your life and happiness is best found through finding work that is true to your authentic self. Too often we get caught up in a mentality in which we “work now” to “live later.”
Alison’s desire is for her clients to not only find “work” but to also find happiness through work they love.

SOUL DETECTIVE TO THE RESCUE!

A soul detective and your champion, Alison mindfully pinpoints the details, big and small, to authentically construct your professional narrative and brand. Her superpower is asking the right questions and teasing out what makes you unique and the best at what you do.

She then works her magic to concisely and elegantly convey your professional identity so that you can build out your professional image and engage in fulfilling work.

  

Hey, I’m Alison

A digital nomad I might be found remote co-working, chasing around two wily toddlers or a Minecraft obsessed tween, enjoying a cocktail with my husband, or running with Elvis, our dog. I start my day with a little yoga and then a cup (or three) of black coffee. I cannot pass up a good prank and I delight in traveling the world and experiencing the world’s diverse cultures and biodiversity.

My greatest joy comes from spending time with family, balanced with time for yoga and the opportunity to help you, my clients, to achieve success and happiness through work you love.

Do not hesitate to contact me via this website and please reach out and connect with me on LinkedIn.

MY SERVICES

I write for individuals, consultants, and small companies: resumes, LinkedIn profiles, cover letters, Blogs, and ghostwriting.

Sometimes I help companies build their content strategy, drive SEO, and or create a self-branded book.
