Cohort-based Course

A Brag Book is a document that amplifies your value, skillset, and impact. Build one in two weeks, and take charge of your career!

Course overview

Being humble ain't going to pay your bills.

- especially in this economy. Build a brag book to enhance your resume, LinkedIn, interviews, performance reviews, and more. It's time to stand out and get paid.


What is a Brag Book?

A brag book is a collection of your professional highlights, testimonials, and achievements that is used as a tool to guide you through career conversations. 


Why do you need one?

Brag books alleviate the pressures associated with interviews and on-the-spot pitches by preparing you to advocate for your value with the support of stories, metrics, and testimonials. 

This course is for you if...

01

You're a job seeker who wants to respond confidently to interview questions

02

You're an employee who wants to advocate for their ideas (and their promotion)

03

You're a freelancer who wants to attract more clients and opportunities

Since its inception, my career community has worked with companies like Amazon, Disney, Conde Nast, Niantic, Spotify, Uber, and more. Our resources have reportedly increased the total compensation of the HIREBLACK members by over $2 million.


As a career coach, I have led workshops at Advertising Week, University of Michigan's Ross School of Business, and NYU Stern School of Business. I also have an online career column for ESSENCE Magazine.


Why did I make this course?

I made this course because believe that if you stay ready, you ain't got to get ready. I want to empower people to be bold and daring with their careers-- and we start by proudly speaking about our accomplishments.
