Joan Graci, President and Founder

Joan has made changing the mindset of job seekers and professionals everywhere her life’s mission. She shares her insight weekly on our blog, recently published her first book, No More Bad Advice, and is featured on The Buffalo News website with her very own advice column.

Alison DeGlopper, Recruiting & Resume Specialist

There isn’t a resume Alison hasn’t seen, and there’s nothing she can’t do to make yours stand out in the eyes of employers. As one of most tenured team members, when not polishing up a professional document or prepping Joan for an event, Alison is likely either reading the newspaper, enjoying live music, or keeping active with her growing family.
