As an experienced senior executive that has always been able to manage career transitions, I was not sure that the outplacement/transition services would be helpful. However, at the very beginning of my work with Alane Shanks, my mind was changed. Within an atmosphere of strong support and encouragement, she helped me establish both short-term and long-term goals and moved me to think about each week ahead. Alane’s manner and approach consistently yielded benefits and was a strong factor in my progress on both the emotional and professional fronts. Her wealth of concrete suggestions and ongoing encouragement demonstrated true insight and yielded a set of actions with concrete results. Although I have always received very positive feedback on my networking and job hunting skills along with my resume and bio, it was clear to me that each of these critical components were, in fact, made much stronger and more effective thanks to her. I have worked on both sides of the table with outplacement/transition service providers. Alane is above all, the most outstanding and effective! She has my strongest endorsement.
