Olga Etkina: In essence, Cultivate Career Authority is a six-week intensive career workshop aimed to help anxious interviewers find career clarity. They will be trained to master interview and salary negotiation skills to propel their careers forward.

Olga: My decade of experience working at some of the top companies in the world. I have always been very hands-on when building out teams and interview infrastructures. I know what companies and managers are looking for because I’ve partnered with them in my whole career. On top of that, I also understand overall anxiety and the feeling of not being good enough. I understand the negative impact this can have on one’s professional life.

Q: As a career expert and educator, who are the people who would benefit from your expertise and workshops the most?

Olga: It would really be anxious interviewers and overall job seekers looking to get a competitive advantage. This could range from people with interview anxiety, new graduates, unfulfilled employees, and general job seekers.
