Welcome to cultivate career authority!

The search for a new job is overwhelming...

Most positions get hundreds of applicants, so how are you supposed to stand out?

And IF you manage to land an interview, how do you prepare for all of those tough questions they’ll ask?

Just the idea of being in the hot seat and trying to make a good impression makes you feel incredibly anxious…

You know you’re qualified for the position, but your nerves always get in the way and you feel sweaty and shaky while rambling through your answers.

The imposter syndrome just gets louder while the pressure to find a new job gets higher.

You're ambitious and you want more than "just a job", but you’re not sure how to get what you want either...

I can practically hear you shouting in frustration, “What are recruiters looking for anyway?!”

It feels like there’s a vault of job hunting secrets somewhere and you can’t seem to crack the code.

But it’s not your fault...

The generic advice people give to find a great job doesn’t help you stand out in a sea of 1,000 applicants.

So why does no one teach the REAL skills you need to stand out in an oversaturated market?

It’s enough to make anyone feel discouraged, anxious, and downright bummed.

But here’s the thing… building your career should be exciting and fun, not overwhelming and nerve wracking.

You’re going to spend a third of your life working. It's important you love what you do.

And isn’t it thrilling that you get to choose which path to take?

Truth is, your job is part of your identity. How many times have you had conversations that start with, “So, what do you do?”

That’s why it’s so important to find a career that aligns with you and makes you feel satisfied and fulfilled. Something to give you a sense of pride and fill you with purpose.

That’s where I come in.

I’m Olga and I help job seekers, like you, gain the confidence you need to upgrade your career by mastering your interview strategy and have job offers flowing in- then negotiate a salary increase of 15% or (much, much) more.

Whether you’re a recent grad, current job seeker, or an unfulfilled employee looking to make a change, Cultivate Career Authority is here to help.

5 Strategies to calm interview nerves
Olga Etkina - About Me

If opportunity isn’t knocking, let’s build the door, together!

I'm a career expert who helps job seekers get hired and propel their career forward. 📈

My mission is to provide job hopefuls, like you, with the resources you need to get clarity around what career most aligns with you, master your interview strategy, and negotiate a salary higher than what you expected.

I know all too well how difficult it can be to navigate the job market...

You see, I’ve battled with social anxiety and self-doubt my whole life. Pair that with the pressure of job hunting and it creates even more challenges. But after multiple rejections from employers, I knew something had to change...

I was determined to overcome the obstacles that were holding me back so I could land my career-defining job.

So I decided to make intentional efforts to defeat my anxiety and learn the ins and outs of job interviewing.

Because we all want to be proud of the work we do and feel fulfilled by a career we love.

Wouldn’t you agree?

I just wish I had someone back then to create a step-by-step plan to give me the confidence and guidance I was needing. It would have saved me A LOT of headaches and even more time.

But eventually, after a ton of research and daily self practice, my hard work paid off and I was able to land a job with Morgan Stanley where I was first introduced to Talent Acquisition.

I became the person who got to look for qualified applicants and hire the ONE person I thought was best for the role. And I felt so much pride from being a part of the team that got to select the perfect candidate.

But that was just the beginning of my career...

Since then, I’ve spent the last decade hiring teams for other prestigious Fortune 500 companies such as Goldman Sachs, and Bank of America as well as, Chief, ClassPass, and other big names. I’ve sorted through thousands of resumes and negotiated numerous offers.

I know exactly what it takes to get hired.

There is a systematic process that nearly ALL companies use to determine who they select. And I’m pulling back the curtains on all of the secrets.

That’s why I created Black Swan Career Academy- to help people, like you, overcome barriers and give them a competitive edge in the workforce.

I will be your career confidante, the person who’s been where you are now- and is obsessed with getting you results.

Why try to figure this all out on your own when you can work with someone who understands what you’re struggling with and can give you all of the insider secrets to success?

And it goes beyond just landing your dream job…

Over the course of my career, I’ve negotiated my own salary up 875% from when I first started.

Imagine what your life would look like if you could do that too…

I believe your job should bring out your superpower- being exceptional. So let me help you land a career you’re passionate about and negotiate your way up to a spellbinding salary.

Ready to see what you’re capable of?



Most companies get over 200 applicants per job, sometimes over a 1,000.

Just to hire ONE person.

The odds are truly against you. Having no strategy is simply not an option.

But I can see your potential bursting out of you- so let’s make sure employers see it too.

I created the CCA Workshop because I understand what it’s like to suffer from interview anxiety, self-doubt, and the feeling of not being good enough.

I know how lonely and isolating this can feel for job seekers and applicants.

But it doesn’t have to be this way…

Finding your new career should be exciting and empowering. Something that brings you joy and fills you with meaning...

Let me help you silence the imposter syndrome so you can master interview and salary negotiation skills to propel your career forward and get a job that makes you proud.

Why work with Cultivate Career Authority?

Understand yourself from a career perspective: Stop taking advice from friends and family. It’s time for an unbiased opinion so you can understand your strengths and weaknesses and find a career that is rewarding and satisfying.

Identify the right role and employer for you: Your career should align with who you are as a person. When you identify your personal goals and passions, you’ll experience a sense of meaning and fulfillment.

Become clear and focused on your next steps: Not having a laser-focused game plan is like trying to hit the bullseye in the dark. You need to see where you’re going and have a good idea of how to make it there.

Implement a strategy: So you know that bullseye analogy? Yeah, you can't win the game without a solid plan of action. Strategy builds confidence and confidence will help you win. And you’re here to win, right?

Set actionable and achievable goals: If you dream too big without a strategy, you’re going to get discouraged. And when that happens, people tend to give up (not you of course). But that’s why setting smaller goals will help you to stay motivated and stick to a timeline.

Soar through the job interviews with confidence: Ever been asked, “What are your long-term goals?” or “Why should we hire you?” Well, you’re probably answering them wrong. Let’s make sure you know the right way to respond so you can ‘wow’ the hiring team and land the job.

Negotiate a higher salary: When the job offers start pouring in, you’ll be fully prepared to negotiate to the highest end of the salary range. And most people get at least a 10-20% salary increase. Wouldn’t that be nice?

Whether you’re a fresh grad trying to decide which path to take, hoping to chase a new passion, or ready to upgrade your career, it’s important to find something meaningful and fulfilling.

You don’t have to wait until after you’ve submitted dozens of applications to seek help. No matter what stage of the journey you’re in, the CCA Course has the tools you need to succeed.

CCA is more than a career coaching course, you’ll experience an entire shift in your mindset that will better you for the rest of your life.

Remember this motto:

You are the greatest project you will ever work on.

Here’s what other students are saying:

This workshop is very comprehensive. The modules made sense of so much information that companies never explain. I went from 0 to 4 job offers and negotiated a 40% increase on my base salary. This is information everyone needs to know.

I took CCA when I decided it was time to look for a new job. I wasn't sure what to expect, but what I learned was actionable and had an immediate impact on my job search. I realized my resume needed a ton of work and for the first time I had interview strategy that actually made me feel in control and confident.
