Hi, I'm Alison King

A professional resume writer and job search/career consultant.

Job searching has never been more difficult than it is right now. There’s so much misinformation out there about how to write an effective resume, what to say in an interview, how to network…it’s overwhelming and exhausting. I believe that when something gets too frustrating, difficult, or boring, it’s time to call in a professional to help.

That’s what I do. I help jobseekers use proven strategies to take back control in their job search so they can get hired quicker into the role they want.

Alison King, Resume Writer and Career Coach.

Not too long ago, I was a librarian who was feeling stuck in my career.

I was fed up with long hours, increased duties, lack of advancement opportunities, and many other factors that built up over time to result in a classic case of BURNOUT. More than that, I knew I had outgrown my library career because I didn’t want to be a manager or administrator.  In 2022, I made a leap and launched my post-pandemic, career-switch job search. Four months later, I landed my target position as a full-time copy editor.

That brings me to you. I know how hard it is. I know there is so much competition, and the strategies you used to land a job 20, 10, or even 2 years ago are likely not going to work for you this time around. What you need is a proven strategy, and that’s exactly what I offer — because I know what works, and I want you to stop wasting time and energy on what doesn’t work. It’s my business to help you get hired!

Why work with me?

In short, because I’ve been exactly where you are. But that’s not enough —I’ve dedicated thousands of hours to researching, testing, and teaching best practices of the modern job search. Professional development is one of my top priorities, so I am constantly furthering my own knowledge and skills — all to help YOU succeed.
