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.

Alana is not only the best recruiter I have worked with here at LinkedIn but THE BEST RECRUITER I have worked with in my 25+ years in Silicon Valley. She is an everyday master of finding talent, working with talent before, during and beyond the interview process, and in communicating with her internal clients. As one of those extremely satisfied internal clients, her critical help in bringing on my last hire - my best hire ever! - made all the difference to this new hire, myself, and our company.

Alana was an excellent resource for me throughout my application process at LinkedIn. She is the best recruiter I've worked with. After my interview on Monday morning, I went to play soccer in the afternoon. Alana called me and gave me the offer while I was playing in the soccer filed! She is a true professional whom every candidate loves to work with!

Alana was one of the people that recruited me for my current position at LinkedIn. My first contact with Alana was over the phone, and I was impressed by her intelligence and professionalism. After I joined LinkedIn, I worked with Alana as an interviewer for engineering candidates. Alana is exceptionally organized and hardworking. She is a great communicator as well and pleasant to work with. I think she would be an asset to any organization.
