Getting noticed in this competitive job market is DIFFICULT

It’s undeniable — this is one of the toughest job markets we’ve ever encountered. Hundreds or thousands of candidates with similar qualifications are going for the exact same jobs you want. Jobs that allow for flexible work hours or that are hybrid/remote are in especially high demand. If you’re considering a total career change, your search gets even more complicated. If you’re unemployed, you’re losing money every moment you’re not working. If you’re in a job you don’t love, your wellness is likely taking a hit. You don’t have time to wade through the conflicting (and honestly, just plain BAD) job search advice online from so-called “experts.” You need a proven, reliable strategy, and you need it NOW.

You don’t have to go it alone

Your job search needs to be both branded and targeted. By showing you’re the solution to the employer’s problems, you stand out as a desirable candidate who they can’t wait to meet — and ultimately, hire!

Hi, I’m Alison King!

Who am I, and what do I know anyway?

As a professional resume writer and job search/career consultant, I help job seekers take the courageous and strategic leap to improve their work life so they can get back to enjoying all the other parts of life. Most often, I help Leaping Librarians — librarians, library workers, and LIS-adjacent folks who want to move up in the library/info work OR make a complete career change to something else entirely. I’m a credentialed, professional career services provider, but…

I’ve also been in your shoes! In 2022, I was burnt out and fed up with being a librarian. I’d had enough of the long hours, low pay, lack of opportunities, safety concerns, and increased political/bureaucratic tensions around the job. Using what I had learned from hundreds of hours of study about effective resume writing/job search, I launched my own post-pandemic, career-switch job search from school librarian to 100% remote copy editor at a digital marketing agency! It took 4 months, and I made a lot of mistakes — that I’m determined for you NOT to repeat. Looking back, I know that my search was successful because I employed strategy — the exact same strategy that has helped my own clients to find work they love.
