A Live 6-Week Career Workshop

Gain confidence, clarity & strategy!

My guess is if you're here, you're feeling lost and uncertain about what your future holds. The thought of interviewing may leave you with a pain somewhere between your stomach and chest that leaves you breathless.

I know this, because I've been there.

Whether you're a recent grad, a general jobseeker, or an unfulfilled employee looking to make a move, Cultivate Career Authority is here to help you find career clarity and strategy.

Being an anxious interviewee can feel lonely and isolating. But that doesn't have to be the case.

Together, we will create a strategy to successfully nurture a career that aligns with who you are at your core and help you interview and negotiate with confidence.

In 6 short weeks, you will:

  • Cultivate a success mindset
  • Find career clarity
  • Optimize candidate brand
  • Master your interview strategy
  • Sharpen negotiation skills
  • Negotiate a 10% - 20% salary increase
  • And much, much more!



Why Cultivate Career Authority

Cultivate Career Authority
was created for you.

Job searching can be incredibly overwhelming and a lack of career clarity can feel paralyzing.

Getting a job is an art all on its own. It doesn’t matter how qualified you are or how friendly you may be.

You need to have a way to stop struggling through the interview process.

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

Looking for a new job, especially in today’s climate, can feel intimidating and even a little scary. That’s exactly why I started Black Swan Career Academy and created this 6-week signature workshop. I’m here to dispel the myths about hiring and give you an inside look at how most companies select their candidates, along with the interviewing hacks you need to land the job you want.

My career curriculum is designed to help you overcome imposter syndrome and help you to reach your career potential.

Once you’re armed with my previously secret job-procuring strategies (like how I negotiated my salary up 875% over the course of my career), you’ll have both the confidence and the know-how to go for your goals with peace of mind.

I help anxious interviewers overcome limiting beliefs by leveling up their interview and negotiation skills.

I am a career expert and educator who’s decade of expertise will be your competitive advantage in the job market.

I am also someone who has suffered from what has felt like debilitating social anxiety my whole life. I'm no stranger to imposter syndrome and know personally how it can hold one back. Black Swan Careers was created out of my deep desire to help others overcome these barriers.

Before founding Black Swan Careers, I spent my career building out teams for prestigious companies such as ClassPass, Goldman Sachs, Morgan Stanley, and more. I’ve hired thousands of people and negotiated countless offers.

I know what it takes to get you hired.

The interview process can often feel like a powerless position to be in. It’s time you got clued in to how the whole process works, so you can finally put your own destiny in your hands.

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 an interview strategy that actually made me feel in control and confident.

I landed a job I love and I was able to negotiate a 17% salary increase - all during a pandemic. THANK YOU!

This workshop is very comprehensive. The modules made sense of so much information that companies never explain. I went from 0 to 3 job offers and negotiated a 22% increase on my base salary. This is information everyone needs to know.
