  Enroll in Course

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

Pop quiz! Which one describes you?

  1. You’ve applied for stacks and stacks of jobs but all you hear is crickets
  2. You know applying online is standard practice but you have no clue how to make your (digital) self stand out
  3. Even when you do get interviews, you go in with sweaty palms and you’re not ending up with offers (which is really frustrating because you know you have skills and value to bring to the table!)

Listen: you’re not alone. You’re not a failure.

The problem is, nobody teaches you this stuff. But get ready because that’s about to change!

You CAN land that dream job and I’m here to give you the tools to make it happen.

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 and salary negotiation. 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.”

-Katie G.

You’re a smart, capable woman and I know you want agency in your life.

You're not sure what you could be doing differently but you're ready to try something new so you can finally land the job you actually want instead of accepting whatever happens to come your way. And, future Career Maven, you’re in the right place!

With The Career Maven™ Academy you’ll finally be able to own your career story and unlock the life you want.

In this 4 week bootcamp I’ll walk you through the 5 simple steps to go from day dream to dream job:

  1. Craft your strategy and tell your story by building a strategic job search and getting clear on what you really want
  2. Build your career branding toolkit by uncovering your unique career story brand and how to write resumes, cover letters and LinkedIn profiles to stand out and get seen
  3. Activate your network by getting clear on exactly what networking is, how to do it effectively (without feeling sleazy), staying organized and leveraging digital tools like LinkedIn
  4. Interview like a boss including exactly what to do before, during and after an interview to shine like a STAR
  5. Negotiate your salary with self-assurance by knowing how to consider an offer package, negotiate your pay and benefits and make a decision with total confidence to #ask4more!

Ready to stand out and cultivate a career you love?

"I received an offer from a financial services company and I accepted it! Not only was the position in the career area that I am interested: IT and software product development, but Tiffany really helped me learn the ins and outs of updating my application materials to get noticed. Her reassurance every step of the way was what I needed to unlock a boost of confidence and stay the course. Her experience and expertise resulted in me landing the job of my dreams in just under three months! Pretty incredible."


Real talk: Job search strategies aren't what they used to be 20 or even 10 years ago.

You have to not only be savvy, you have to know how to tell your unique story and make yourself stand out in a digital world.

The key is connecting the dots between your professional experience and new opportunities. And yes, sometimes that’s intimidating when you’ve had diverse experiences that feel a little, well, all over the place.

But you CAN leverage your career story to show what you can do, land a job you love and get the compensation you deserve.

You’ll walk away from The Career Maven™ Academy with the tools to:

  • Feel confident in your job search and shine brighter in a crowded marketplace
  • Finally get attention from recruiters and hiring managers
  • Identify your abilities and interests (and find opportunities that align with them!)
  • Nail how to communicate your value so you can make the money you deserve and cultivate the life you want

I don’t mean to brag or anything but this 4-week bootcamp is unlike anything else out there!

Not only will you get the actionable tools (no fluff here!) to become a dream job magnet, you’ll have access to me as a guide and support since real success comes with accountability.


But let’s back up just a minute. You might be wondering, “who is this Tiffany and why should I listen to her anyway?”

I’m Tiffany Waddell Tate and as a career coach and talent development consultant, I help women gain the tools they need to shine brighter in a crowded marketplace so they can attract their dream job with confidence.

I’m super passionate about helping others develop themselves while adding value to organizations and the world. And believe me, I’ve been where you are…

Trying to get attention from recruiters and hiring managers. Wanting a dream job that aligned with my interests and abilities. Unsure how to communicate my value and earn the money I deserved.

Sound familiar?

It’s frustrating because it feels like there’s so much you should be doing but it’s overwhelming to know where to begin and what advice to take.

That’s why I know it’s time for you to make your job search intentional. To hit the reset button and kickstart your career so you can unlock the life you want.

...preferably with a little joy and the support and accountability of a professional who’ll really take their time with you, right?

With over a decade of work in Higher Education, I’m a trained speaker and facilitator with a special knack for leading professional development efforts for individuals and teams. I’ve been featured as a guest speaker for collegiate institutions, professional associations across the country, and within the private-sector on a variety of professional development topics for college students, early career professionals and executive leaders in transition.

My superpower is coaching professionals to learn, lead and grow at work while being true to their authentic selves and building their personal brand.

Now I can’t wait to share what I've learned to build my career and the careers of others to save you time and stress (and make more money while you’re at it!)
