Allison Cheston, Career Connector


Zeal. Experience. Diligence.

About Allison…

I’m a career advisor in NYC helping millennials and established executives discover, launch, develop and change their careers.

Since 2005 I’ve guided hundreds of clients in applying their strengths and interests to the world of work while positioning and marketing them for the right opportunities. I’m a marketer with a background in new business development, executive search and cross-cultural communication.

I help mid- and late-career clients establish their career and life goals, assess their options, develop their narrative and navigate their career trajectory, which can include a new job, starting a new business, or creating a patchwork career.

I help millennials and Gen Z’s link their interests, education and experiences to the right career path, while creating a roadmap to increase self-awareness and connect school to work in a more structured fashion.

I’m Myers-Briggs certified. And I love a good career discovery conversation, so you’ll find me blogging at Career Connector, or delivering workshops in the New York area.


Get in touch

I always meet prospective clients before an engagement to make sure there’s a good fit. I can work in person, or over Skype or Facetime; I’ve done all successfully. So don’t let distance deter you!
