I created The Career Penny and specifically, Career Growth Strategy Sessions to help women address career issues, experience less doubt and move forward with an intentional growth plan.
DOES THIS SOUND FAMILIAR? HAVE YOU BEEN:
Frustrated with your career because you feel stuck and are getting nowhere?
Confused, feeling like you need guidance or answers?
Burned out, drowning in work and trying to figure out how to come up for air?
Bored in your current position but unsure about what's next and where you can pivot to?
Wanting to know what leveling up looks like for YOU?
Have you been trying to google a proven career strategy that can get your foot in the door, sending messages to random people asking them to tell you how they did it or lurking through instagram accounts to figure out someone's secret to success?
Have you been wanting a promotion and at least a $5k salary increase?
IF YOU ANSWERED YES TO SOME OR ALL OF THESE, THEN YOU'RE IN THE RIGHT PLACE.
How you're feeling right now doesn't have to be permanent. We can make it temporary. I truly believe that there’s no limit to what we can do for you to experience growth, especially together. I went from being an audio intern at a radio station to an on air personality. A travel coordinator at an entertainment production company to working with creative executives at BET. From local news to national news. I’ve climbed the ladder and increased my salary by thousands in just a few years.
SOME PEOPLE SAY YOU NEED TO HAVE A POPPIN' PERSONAL BRAND ON SOCIAL MEDIA TO BE SEEN AND HEARD IN THE INDUSTRY.
SOME THINK YOU NEED TO RACK UP ON CELEBRITY INTERVIEWS TO BE CREDIBLE OR RELEVANT.
If this is the case, then why are there countless accomplished women in media who make well over $100K, are in positions of power and have fulfilling lives doing what they love to do?
Let's work. My Career Growth Strategy Sessions were designed to help you move forward. Whether that's getting promoted, talking money, managing up, alleviating burnout, writing better, networking effectively and much more. You can be successful whether it is behind the scenes or in front of the camera. You CAN create a beautiful career.

"For months I had been spending days and nights applying to countless numbers of jobs, hoping to hear back from just one. After being denied or either just what seem like ignored an opportunity was finally presented! Corvaya Jeffries helped me find programs that made breaking into media after college easier. It was something I didn’t know I needed! I applied for a program offered by a large media company and was accepted! As a communication major with a focus in media studies and spanish minor aspiring to excel in the media industry this opportunity was just what I had been looking for! Throughout the application process Corvaya was always there for me! She not only gave me wonderful advice but also comforted me in times that I was not sure my skills would be up to par. Because I was not familiar with digital marketing strategies she even pointed me in the right direction and helped me in exploring resources that would show me how to create one. Not only did she give me her own personal advice but also advice from co-workers that work in the field. This information was incredibly helpful because I was able to tailor my work to appeal directly to what it is this program was scouting. One of the greatest pieces of advice that she gave to me was that I should always be myself. Without the thoughtfulness, care and careful consideration of Corvaya I would have never landed this opportunity. Throughout the process Corvaya supported me and gave me tips that really helped in making a great impression. She also looked over elements of my application to make sure that it was clear and that my ideas made sense."
