What my clients say — in their own words
Whether I’m giving a series of career coaching calls, developing a LinkedIn strategy or simply re-writing a resume, I love hearing from you!
Confidence boosting and supportive, Alison offers real-time solutions, actionable feedback, and support for every step of the process when looking for a job. Her approach is just what I need to help me cope with my current situation, stay positive, focus on my skills and strengths, and seek out the next step in my career.
I hired Alison because I wanted a more professional LinkedIn profile, but I didn’t want it to appear I was looking for a job. The process was very straightforward and simple to manage. Since my new profile went up, I have had many compliments on my profile — not only that — I am getting the targeted views I was hoping for!
Alison is a great coach who really listens and asks insightful clarifying questions. Through our coaching work I’ve been able to be more focused on what I am actually looking for in my career and ways to build on resources I already have in my current job role. She’s great at connecting the dots between ideas that I was struggling with to help align them with the actions I’m taking in reaching out to professional colleagues.
I am super happy with the coaching & end results of both my resume & LinkedIn profile. I got a job offer from my 3rd interview & have had a ton of recruiters contact me based on my LinkedIn profile. Employers sought me out!
The process of working with Alison was great, the questions about my experience made me search for details about my experience & education I hadn’t thought of.
And, I would definitely refer any of my recent co-workers to her.
I’m still in the process of implementing some of the wonderful ideas and suggestions she made to me, but I feel as if her help will greatly help me here on LinkedIn on connecting with others. She does a lot of research for you and it shows that she cares greatly about your profile.
I highly recommend Alison to anyone that is looking to spruce up their LinkedIn profiles. She will be very valuable to you.
After working together, I felt great about my job prospects, and I received a job offer at Southwest Airlines! It feels great to be working full time after not being in the workforce for so long.
You were very helpful in preparing me for the interview, and I felt extremely confident! I also like having an updated resume and LinkedIn profile.
I feel like I’m better prepared to keep looking for my dream job or advance within Southwest. I have recommended you to two friends because I enjoyed working with you and you have a great working knowledge of a lot of industries and what specific services people may need from you.
You are very organized and I liked the strategic approach to my career search as well as receiving specific tools that will help me in my everyday job search/networking. The only thing I would have changed is the option for longer sessions and more email support, which I know that you’ve now addressed!
Unlike other resume experts I have worked with, she didn’t just give me recommendations for changing word choices and tweaking my list of job accomplishments. Rather, it was about “telling the story” of the type of employee I am and the value I can bring by way of transferable skill-sets.
This was incredibly important as I find myself at a crossroads: interested in different positions with a varied skill set and background. I also appreciated her candid feedback regarding the job search (just because you “could” do a job doesn’t mean you are a good fit), and her willingness to assist with targeted cover letters.
All of this has helped me gain clarity and focus during this transition. Finally, she has great turnaround time and follow-thru! I enthusiastically recommend her to anyone looking for resume/profile assistance.
In my continued work with Alison she continues to amaze and surprise me with her keen listening and deep questions. She’s asked me the questions I needed to hear, so that I could hear my own answers to my BIG questions. It is so nourishing to hear our own voice in those answers.
My LinkedIn has definitely seen a significant boost in traffic and I know feel great about my job prospects. I’d recommend your service to a friend looking to improve their appeal.
Alison asked powerful questions that helped me uncover new insights for myself regarding my career journey. She’s great at recognizing the strengths of those she coaches. Even better, she’s skillful at helping you believe in your strengths.
Alison made it easier than I could even imagine. After working together I felt great about my job prospects. And I would recommend you to anyone looking to build or update a resume.
I will continue to use her format and would recommend Alison highly if you are looking to update your resume. I also understand she provides a variety of other remote assistant services. I assume she is prompt and professional in those areas as well! Thanks, Alison!
You were a huge part of my success – I’ve landed an awesome job where I’m very happy. I’m recommending you to all my friends! Best of luck and keep on doing what you’re doing because we need you!!!!!
