Alana is one of the best senior technical recruiters I have known. Her ability to spot talented individuals and drive the recruiting process is greatly appreciated. She would call me up 24/7 to ensure that next steps were handled in a timely fashion. Very smart, very diligent.

Alana is remarkable at what she does! We had her come into our organization to help us hire and retain better employees. We got a lot more than we asked for. She is regimented in her process yet assimilates quickly to the organization: he team felt immediately comfortable with her which allowed for immediate learning. The first day, we worked as a team on the core foundation of Recruiting: our values and vision, what we are truly looking for in regards to the position and how to identify what the candidates "Drivers" are so that we can make the best hire possible. We have been in business for 19 years and I think we forgot some of the values we possess along the way. This was an eye opening session! She had the team excited and working together to rejuvenate the core values and vision that we all strive for on a daily basis for our customer. This is where we developed the “Formula” that solidified how to identify what drives others, the candidates that are coming in, in order for our company to be able to identify whether or not we can offer new candidates a long term opportunity. Also, the team was unified based off of the identification of must-have's and nice to have's in regards to what is truly needed so that hiring teams are clear from day one rather than being detached throughout the process which could only equal not hiring the right people. Day two, she had us work on how we were to restructure our hiring procedures. During this process, I really wondered why someone would want to work at our organization. After she worked with us to discover and create the best process for us, it made sense as to why someone would choose us over our competitors. Our new process was inviting and organized where applicants feel comfortable throughout the process. This allows us to find those perfect employees for our organization. Day three, was interesting. She knew our individual personalities from only working with us for only a couple of days. She worked individually with us on our weaknesses and helped us hoan in on them so as to exploit our individual strengthens to help us build a stronger team and to build on our values and vision. Also during this day, she had a unique process that I had never heard of before whereas live candidates were brought in in order to integrate and fully grasp the learnings of day one and day two. This I was not excepting this at all. The foundation of our recruiting function was altered and made to become unified and strong for the prosperity of current and future employees as well as the company as a whole. Thank You Alana!

My first manager once said "I'd rather tame a wild stallion than kick a dead horse." I love working with Alana, because she's a stallion. She is quick to capture the essential needs of a position and develop a sourcing strategy. She has a great nose for talent and is always on top of the next play, proactively driving hiring managers. She's quite skilled at closing candidates by understanding their needs and expanding their focus beyond title and compensation to consider how the opportunity aligns with their dreams and brings transformative growth, … and then presenting the offer when the candidate is ready to accept. In short, she's an A+ recruiter.

In 2017, Alana worked with me as I sought to make a major career transition. Her advice and guidance so profoundly influenced my mentality going into my search, that not only did I end up with the kind of job at the type of company I was hoping for, but I truly can't imagine working anywhere else! Her ability to help people imagine and pursue what they desire in their deepest of hearts is rare and so very special. Whereas other career counselors I've encountered in the past have applied what felt like a tired template to my individual needs, Alana helped me tap into MY power and my vision for my future. I'm so grateful to her for the work we did together!
Do you ever wish you knew what was going on in the head of the HR person looking at your resume? Alana Fulvio knows. And she cares. And she can help you break the logjam and get a job. She provided the most astute and actionable interviewing advice I have ever received and she sculpted my resume into a perfectly balanced work of art. Her insider knowledge kept me a step ahead through my job search and salary negotiation. Best of all she "got me" and helped me see my competitive assets at a higher level of resolution. As a result I have continued to be more confident since working with her. Alana continually went above and beyond the call of duty, meeting and taking calls at short notice in response to late breaking opportunities. She is whipsmart, energizing and dedicated. As a thought leader in recruiting and HR she is truly the best ally a candidate could have. Stop wasting your time and call her.

Alana recruited engineers and managers for my org at Medallia. She was able to source great candidates, to drive them through the process and to help close them despite an extremely aggressive hiring plan and a very difficult recruiting environment. She partners well with engineering leaders to understand their needs and to align the interview process to those needs. She also develops trust with prospective candidates, helping to close them at a high rate. Lastly, Alana is a pleasure to work with as an engineering leader.

At GoPro Alana was my recruiter for Technical Project Management. Alana was extremely effective in understanding my position needs, actively searching and engaging with qualified passive candidates, and vetting them before sending them my way. She was always spot on in finding both technical and cultural fits for my open positions. In addition she was very strong in closing candidates in a very competitive environment. And just as important, Alana was always a pleasure to work with.

I've worked with Alana in landing some very critical hires -- she's one of the best recruiters I've had the pleasure to work with in the past 20 years (and I've worked with many recruiters to hire many technical specialists and leaders in that time). She has a keen sense of best business value, dependability, and superior personal engagement skills -- a very high value combination of assets in her role. I would gladly work with Alana again in the future.
