I remember my first discussion with Alison. JibberJobber was relatively new, and I was anxious to have people like her learn about it, blog about it, share it with their audience. I emailed her a few times, and she finally called my phone number. At the time, I didn’t have a work number… so she called my home 🙂
I was in a bedroom taking apart (or putting together?) a bed frame … tools and stuff where a strew, when she called. I was flattered, and delighted. We had a great call, and over the years we’ve had a number of communications, including lunches when she’s been in Utah.
Alison Doyle is the real deal. She is genuine, smart, current, and really passionate about all-things-job-search. Check out her books here. You can learn more about Alison on Twitter (@AlisonDoyle), and of course find her atJobSearch.About.com.
