Fork in Road- Career Choice

Making a career choice can be difficult because there are two decision layers that occur when choosing.

Career5 Roadmap Platform
1) What are the top strengths you want to bring into this new position?

2) What are the logistics needed in this next phase of your career (salary, travel, culture, commute time, etc.)?

We rank your choices against logistics to make an informed best choice and roadmap what is needed to get you there.

5 Career Accelerator Program®: We help you accelerate your career using a guided 5-step mission-based framework where you pick your track so you can move from market-rate to value-based salary/compensation:

The Eternal Intrapreneur

Make money like an entrepreneur without the risk. Generate new business, products, or revenue growth for companies and get paid based on value (not average market rate). 

The Eventual Entrepreneur

Gain experience first, then start a business. You get free "How to Run Your Business" knowledge as you gain experience at a company that knows how to run a business, so you're prepared when starting your own company.

The Subject Matter Expert (SME) 

You are the SME, key researcher, industry guru, or a thought leader. You are sought out by others in your arena for knowledge, be on committees, and give presentations. You are a desirable candidate in which companies will pay extra because your expertise brings clout to companies.

 Why is an authentic personal brand important?

When looking for a job or growing your career (especially into leadership), having a personal brand that authentically conveys your unique skills, values, past track record, and personal mission can be a game-changer! This helps build your personal story and brings the inner confidence needed to help you be memorable. You want people to think of you when opportunities pop up. We work with all of our clients to build authentic brands!

What Clients Are Saying...

Testimonial“Career5 was just what I needed to help push myself forward in uncovering the type of work that would fulfill my needs and align with my lifestyle, and the coaching I received helped me to dig deeper to discover insights that I wouldn’t have found on my own. Going through the Career5 program helped me to develop an action plan and roadmap to fit my timeline and keep me on track in a strategic manner, rather than just moving wherever the wind blew me. Coaching makes the process fun, with gentle nudges, offering invaluable advice that also helped get me excited about new opportunities. I am now working in my new career path and I love it! I would use the Career5 method each and every time I needed to explore new paths! Thanks Career5!”
