Dr. Tojan Rahhal spoke to my class in February, and I can’t recommend her more.  She spoke to a classroom of seniors, preparing to network and present their portfolios in the hopes of winning job opportunities. She was insightful, clear and concise. She gave actionable advice, that the students were able to use immediately.

I would highly recommend Dr. Rahhal and Alliance Professional Development to anyone looking to learn and grow in today’s fast changing environment.

Research Assistant and Doctoral Student in the Environmental Sciences and Engineering Department – Gillings School of Global Public Health at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill (UNC-CH)

“Dr. Rahhal’s talent for inspiring and advising graduate students is unsurpassed. Her combination of skillsets ranging from technical expertise to leadership are a potent combination for professional development coaching.
As a graduate student, I applied to numerous funding opportunities (including the National Science Foundation Graduate Research Fellowship Program (NSF GRFP) and the Environmental Protection Agency Science to Achieve Results (EPA STAR) program) in hopes of securing a funding source for my doctoral program. Due in large part to Dr. Rahhal’s instrumental advice and guidance, I received an honorable mention from NSF and, the following year, was selected for the EPA STAR program.

Moreover, Dr. Rahhal introduced me to the UNC-CH Leadership Development Scholars Program; this program, hosted by the graduate school, encourages graduate students to plan and organize a professional development workshop to address an outstanding need in the graduate population. Dr. Rahhal has a passion  and unique ability for nurturing talent in individuals; Dr. Rahhal’s input has been a great asset over the past four years and I sincerely look forward to working with her in the future.”

Tojan and her team at Alliance Professional Development have done a thorough analysis of complicated issues facing today’s academic student and young professional. Their workshops draw from personal experience and an up-to date incorporation of current literature to not only draw attention to these problems in the academic workplace but provide tangible and tried-and-true methods to address them.

I walked away from this workshop with approaches to tackle my own issues with things such as impostor syndrome, as well as approaches to create my own open and successful environment moving forward. Tojan and her team were well prepared, spoke clearly and were incredibly informative in the workshop environment. Even better, the team was extremely approachable after the fact and has proven a valuable and continued resource for me. A tremendous connection – thank you so much!
