Curiosity Calls


It was a pleasure working with Alison. Starting with the StrengthsFinder test really helped put things into perspective for me, and she did a great job incorporating my five greatest strengths in our discussions. With each session I was able to articulate and clarify my ideal career, which is to be an Academic coach, and working with Alison helped me to see how I could work toward that career now. She helped me break things down into manageable steps, and she encouraged me to hold on to my dream. With the tools and insights I gained from working with Alison, I am in the process of building a meaningful and fulfilling coaching practice. If you want to create a satisfying and fulfilling career, I highly recommend working with Alison.
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.
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 m 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! It feels great to be working full time after not being in the workforce for so long[...] I feel like I’m better prepared to keep looking for my dream job or advance. 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.
Before joining Career Clarity, I lacked confidence in my resume, and I wanted to improve how I talk about my work/skills. I was feeling hopeful but not expectant about the future. After working with Alison, I feel more confident that I can create the future that I want. As a bonus, I learned more about goal setting and uncovered some limiting beliefs that I wasn't aware of. I would recommend your services to anyone needing help with their professional persona in any capacity!
