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 always ask for feedback from my clients. I’m constantly improving my services and love hearing how my clients have found work they love.

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!

LinkedIn Profile, Oct 2018

Before working with Alison I didn’t know where to start with my resume, my LinkedIn profile or LinkedIn strategy. I was in the early stages of looking for a great new job & wanted both to be professional.

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. Clissy

Résumé & Job Search Coaching, Sept 2018

Alison is great at what she does! She took my plain and simple LinkedIn profile and helped me improve it greatly.

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. Barbara, Remote Virtual Assistant

LinkedIn Profile & Pivot Strategy, February 2018

Before working with Alison, I was hesitant that I wouldn’t be able to pull together my experience into a concise, understandable format for my resume and my 2-minute pitch about myself. My job prospects before we worked together were all over the map!

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! Karen

Career & Pivot Coaching, LinkedIn Profile, Résumé, Oct 2018

Before hiring Alison, I was not sure where to start with updating my LinkedIn page or how my resume needed to be formatted. The questionnaire took me a while to fill out; I might have put too much thought into it, but I had great success when my resume and LinkedIn were done. My LinkedIn Profile had a ton of traffic, and I had multiple recruiters sending me job recs within the first week or two. Dave

LinkedIn Profile & Résumé, Jan 2018

Alison was the second LinkedIn resume professional I have worked with (third total). What impressed me the most about working with Alison was her interest to learn so much about me, life choices, goals, past jobs, etc., to create a unified profile built on skill sets and interests, not specific job titles.

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. EC

LET’S FIND YOU WORK YOU LOVE.
Prior to working together, I had some hesitation as I wasn’t sure what really needed to be improved with my resume and LinkedIn. I was very unsure about my job prospects.

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. Rob, IT Executive

LinkedIn Strategy & Résumé, Sept 2018

Alison’s questionnaire really helped me understand more about myself and my career goals. If you need help centering and targeting your resume, I’d definitely recommend working with her. I found my dream job a few months after she revised and streamlined my resume. Alison, you are a lifesaver! April

Résumé & Job Search Coaching, March 2018

It is not often that you find someone who can weave your words and ideas seamlessly into an accurate personal narrative. Alison did just this for my LinkedIn profile. As an HR Professional, I already had a robust profile; however, it was missing something and did not accurately represent my experiences. Working with me, Alison actively transformed my profile to powerfully and authentically capture my professional accomplishments. Janice, HR Director

LinkedIn Profile, Dec 2017

I felt out of touch with resume building trends and confused about what career path to take. All difficulty was my own indecision.

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. Gleb

Résumé & LinkedIn Strategy, May 2017

Alison was referred to me to help me update my resume. She was prompt and very helpful. I subsequently landed a great job and have a resume I’m proud to share.

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! Kaleigh, Business Development Manager

Résumé & LinkedIn Strategy, October 2016

Alison created a polished and professional profile page that supports my current position well. This was a nice upgrade as we were hiring new positions within our organization, people were doing their research prior on our staff as well as the organization and getting positive background information. The way it was written, it looks great for my existing role but also attractive to recruiters. VP & General Manager, Industrial Supply Company

LinkedIn Strategy, April 2018

I would like to say HUGE THANK YOU for all your help with my resume. I had immediate responses as soon as I posted it on job posting sites. One of the sites (i think it was dice.com) offered a free resume-evaluation service which I clicked on. They got back to me saying that my resume is perfect and does not need any adjustments. I knew that of course, it was just a basic human desire to be re-affirmed. 🙂 I’ve landed an awesome job, which I absolutely love.

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!!!!! Ella, Lead Technical Analyst
