Alana speaks with a passion and depth of knowledge that puts technical candidates at ease that they're speaking to someone who truly understands their needs. She spoke to me at length about the benefits of working in Silicon Valley, but the conversation remained wholly objective and I never felt like she was trying to sell me on anything. Once I accepted the offer she negotiated for me, she continued to remain in touch in order to assist me in finding living arrangements in the Bay Area. I look forward to working with Alana again in the future.

Alana is a dedicated recruiter, intent on making matches that will really work! She asks the right questions, gets to know about candidates in a way that enables her to make quick matches to the right positions. Down to earth, practical, clear and concise, she was a pleasure to work with both when she recruited me, and working with to hire engineers. Highly recommend!

Alana was crucial in eliminating a potentially disastrous bottleneck during our recruiting drive for one of my operations teams. She personally stepped in and worked with the hiring manager and me to gain clear insight into the specific job attributes that were most critical. Alana then presented a number of high quality candidates from whom we ultimately made an offer. She attained that fine balance of being assertive and persistant without stepping on toes, and turned a stagnant situation into a success story! Alana's direct style, professional attitude, and personal touch made working with her a pleasure. I hope our professional paths cross again soon!

Alana is very detail oriented, highly dedicated and is a very driven professional. She has a great attitude and exceptional interpersonal skills, which serve to make her a very personable direct contact and an outstanding company representative to prospective candidates, as well as an effective manager. She is well respected by those who have had the opportunity to work with her, and speaking as a candidate that she recruited, she was fantastic during my recruitment process, and I'm fortunate to work with her at Rearden Commerce. It is that connection that she makes with candidates, her ability to present opportunities in a very attractive manner, and the energy that she has that ultimately sold me on Rearden Commerce, and I’d consider any future opportunity that allowed me to work with her again.

I can say without hesitation that Alana Fulvio is one of the most talented and effective recruiters I’ve collaborated with in my career. I worked closely with Alana to fill three reqs on my team, and was part of Alana-led evaluation teams for countless other strategic hires across the company. I found three unique attributes within each endeavor: 1. Alana sourced a pool of outstanding candidates 2. Her process was well-defined and clearly communicated 3. She executed flawlessly and in a timely manner Alana has the persona, professionalism, and process required to identify and secure top-flight talent in today’s competitive market. I give her my absolute highest recommendation.

We hired Alana to come in and work on our most demanding team. She partnered with us to changed the culture/mentality of senior leaders that needed a lot of hand holding and tough love to get them on a good path. I highly endorse her!
I knew Alana through the phone interview; she is a nice person to talk with and you would not feel stressed during the interview. Moreover, she is very professional and she understands the role and responsibility that the company is looking for. Alana and I had a great conversation, she was able to guide me through the interview and she showed me her knowledge and understanding of the Accounting as well as her knowledge about the company and the team. After the interview, I am much confident and interested to explore with Rearden Commerce. Alana is definitely a very nice person to work with.

First off, Alana is a highly skilled professional with significant background and experience. She was very organized and structured in her presentations and was also a magnificent facilitator for collaborative discussions. Alana provided us a collaborative workshop over a few days enlightening us about many facets of recruiting (abridged list below): 1) Defining ourselves: culture, mission, values 2) Really understanding and defining what role, skillset, and qualities to look for in a candidate 3) Conducting successful phone and onsite interviews 4) How to debrief and assess candidates This workshop fundamentally changed the company's approach to recruiting, which is ultimately the most important component to successfully growing a company. The impact of Alana's workshop transcended beyond recruiting as several other areas of the company were positively impacted: 1) There was newfound sense of unity and alignment after collaboratively defining our culture and values leading to stronger belief in ourselves and the company mission 2) Overall company collaboration and communication improved substantially as we had learned a lot about each other during the workshop 3) This workshop made for fantastic practice in creating structure and building a process around recruiting. We then applied these principles and a similar approach to create structure and build process in other areas of the company Overall this was a fantastic workshop and highly recommended for growing companies, aligning a workforce, and creating significant improvements beyond recruiting.

Alana and I worked together at GoPro. She helped me build a very talented team there focused on image and video quality. GoPro is located in silicon valley where finding good candidates is not easy (especially in the specialized areas of image and video processing) and added to this, the company was going through massive growth. Alana did an awesome job with not only identifying great candidates but filtering them correctly so that the success rate for both phone and onsite interviews was extremely high. Alana is smart, very hard working, and very fast at grasping the job's requirements. She always has a smile on her face, a very positive attitude at all times, and is very easy to work with. Alana is also an amazing communicator and went to extreme lengths to makes sure that the candidates and the team are aligned on priorities and time frames. She is amazing at what she does, I am yet to work with a recruiter as good as her.
