Allison played an instrumental role in helping me through a recent career transition.

Allison crushed through my career frustrations and struck at the core of my dilemma: I was an experienced, multi-talented creative without a clear career goal. I didn’t know what I was, so why should recruiters take a chance on me? It wasn’t an easy process, but Allison corrected the course of my career by helping me sell myself as a sharp knife instead of a jack-of-all-trades.

Allison is incredibly insightful and supportive. She helped me prepare for a career change - listening carefully and offering suggestions of organizations to explore that I had not considered. Her step by step process identified my transferable skills and marketed them to a new industry. She assisted with resume writing, cover letters and interview skills that helped me tremendously. I highly recommend Allison for her positive encouragement and guidance to anyone looking for a career coach.
