  Enroll in Course

Are you tired of applying to jobs, and not hearing back? Let's change that!

You understand that applying online is the standard practice nowadays, but you often feel like you're missing a step. How do you stand out in a digital stack of resumes? How do you tell your story, especially when you're limited to a certain number of characters on an application form?

You know you have lots of great skills and value to bring to an organization, but you're not getting interviews or job offers. You're not sure what you could be doing differently, but you're ready to try some new strategies so you can finally land the job you actually want instead of accepting whatever happens to come your way (assuming you even get an offer).

Don't worry. You're not alone. Many job seekers struggle to apply effectively and land the jobs they actually want. That's why I created the Career Maven Academy.

Get the strategies, skills and tools you need to get more interviews, more jobs and more pay.

Job search strategies aren't what they used to be 20 or even 10 years ago. You have to be savvy. You have to learn how to tell your story and know how to stand out in a digital world.

I created Career Maven Academy to fill a need I saw not only among many of my clients, but one that I experienced myself early in my career. When I hit the 7-year mark post-college, I realized I needed to approach my career and job search in a different way. I needed to be more strategic and intentional about finding my next job.

"Tiffany gets the highest recommendation possible from me. While searching for my first job after college, Tiffany guided me through all aspects of the process: cover letters, interview prep, onsite visit outfit tips, salary negotiation, etc. She not only has the knowledge that made my job search smooth and successful but Tiffany provided a calm support system during a time that would have otherwise been stressful for me.

Tiffany also graciously helped my boyfriend search for a job when he was relocating to Seattle. Her advice and support of his job search helped accelerate him from 0 to 3 job offers in the course of a few months.

Tiffany is the real deal. She's so kind, thoughtful, smart, and skilled at what she does. Highly, highly, recommend!"

I'm sharing what I've learned to build my career and the careers of many clients across various industries.

Wouldn’t it be nice to get momentum in your job search and check off those tasks you’ve been putting off? Like updating your resume? Dusting off the old LinkedIn profile you haven’t updated since starting your last job? Finally setting up those networking coffee chats you’ve been thinking about, but not acting on?

There’s a reason you haven’t gotten the results you want on your own. Job searching is seriously a full time job. It requires consistent self-motivation and action, insight into your own strengths and weaknesses, and the resilience to weather a lot of ups and downs as you go along.


I designed Career Maven Academy in 2019 to help early and mid-career professionals find and land their next jobs, in a self-driven digital space that promotes collaboration, accountability, and motivation – the very things that are often missing when you’re job searching on your own.

Is this the right program for you?

Still trying to decide whether or not to claim your seat in the Career Maven™ Academy? This 4 week course is an intensive workshop designed to help you unpack the clarity and confidence you need to sustain a successful job search and manage your career like a boss.

It’s a great fit for you if:

  • You’re an early or mid-career professional, with about 5-10 years of work experience.
  • You want to do work that has meaning, and you’ve already had some work experience.
  • You’re motivated to work hard on your job search and able to spend at least 3-5 hours per week on the process, even after the intensive wraps.
  • You’re open to coaching and new ideas about the best way to get results.
  • You’re excited to work with a career coaching expert and receive insider tips and support.

What's included in Career Maven?

Career Maven Academy is designed to be a fast-paced, intense program to help you get unstuck and get results in just 4 weeks.

You’ll leave each week with specific steps to take as you move ahead to ensure you’re on track toward your goals.

The program will give you the structure, tools and motivation you need to take control over your career journey, and push through the hard stuff that’s keeping you from taking the next step in your career. You’ll have access to a community of others who are right where you are, and rooting for your success.

If you join Career Maven™ Academy and put in the time and work to complete workshop assignments, within the month you will have:

  • Goals and a plan for your search, to help you structure your time and work smarter not harder.
  • More clarity and confidence in how to tell your unique “career story.”
  • Job search tools to help you stand out and get hired: a revamped resume, LinkedIn profile, and cover letter.
  • Proven tactics to help you succeed in behavioral interviews and small group interview or networking settings.

In addition, you’ll get:
