Happy Speaking Clients!
Alaina Levine has worked with our Society for over seven years to provide our members with high-quality STEM career counseling in the form of workshops, webinars, networking events, and one-on-one sessions. One of the many reasons our Society chooses to work with Levine year after year is her ability to adjust her counseling based on the current needs of our members. Not only does she consistently bring great ideas to the table, but she is also a pleasure to work with and brings an infectious energy to her public speaking.

Alaina was a fantastic speaker to start off our year in the Wildcat Mentor Society. We were looking for someone who could inspire and resonate with a diverse audience in a virtual environment, and Alaina went above and beyond our expectations! In addition, she is a fantastic person to work with. I would highly recommend her for your next speaking engagement.

Alaina Levine is by far one of the most enthusiastic speakers you’ll ever hear. Alaina’s forte is offering practical (and proven) career advice in an entertaining and engaging way. Using comedy, Alaina helps STEM students identify skills and competencies, gives them tips on networking, and opens their eyes to the myriad of career opportunities that await them outside of academia. If you are looking for a fun, yet professional speaker to provide effective job-seeking techniques and tips for career exploration, then look no further than Alaina. She’s my number one recommendation!
Happy Coaching Clients!
Alaina's experience as a professional speaker is invaluable, whether you want to scale your speaking business or if you want to practice for an upcoming event. Working with her helped me gain confidence for a speaking engagement I had, and I was eager to carry similar tactics forward for other speaking engagements.

"Alaina is a fabulous speaking coach — smart, knowledgeable and a true joy to work with. I learned so much from her that will help me further develop my professional speaking career. I learned how to pitch myself as a professional speaker, how to structure and deliver keynotes, how to negotiate fees and terms, and how to leverage every talk into more speaking opportunities. I highly recommend working with Alaina."

Alaina was an enormous help in preparing me to apply and interview for a world-leading directorship position at a large global science facility. She coached and advised me in all aspects of a senior management position hiring process - from recasting my CV into a position-winning brochure of experience and attributes most relevant and critical to the position, through challenging interview training sessions, and providing specific debriefs and strategy discussions at each stage of the process. Her expertise and experience was key to my ultimate success in being offered (and now holding) this prestigious and highly competitive position. Thanks Alaina.
I was miserable in my job and had been searching and applying for other jobs unsuccessfully for six months. Alaina helped me think through what I truly wanted out of the next step in my career and then provided me with the tools needed to make it a reality. With her guidance and support, I landed an amazing job in a matter of weeks, literally doubling my salary. I would recommend Alaina to anyone who is feeling stuck in their career or repeatedly striking out in the job market.
Alaina is so pleasant and knowledgeable, my confidence boosted 100% in just 15 minutes of speaking with her!
In the four months of having Alaina as a mentor, I've undergone significant personal and professional growth. Her mentorship and support have instilled the confidence and skills I've needed to excel in my transition from college to post-grad life. Alaina has provided me with several invaluable lessons, such as refining my interview skills for HPE's rigorous interview process to showcasing how to present passion alongside skill, leading to my acceptance into the ThinkChicago program. All throughout, she has shown me nothing short of unwavering support, enthusiasm, and interest in my development. I am beyond grateful to have her as a mentor, and I know she will impact many more to come.
