Hi, I'm Aimee Marcelo, founder of Career 5. I'm here to show you how to carve out meaning into your professional life by taking ownership in your job search and career efforts...to start thinking of YOU, Inc...to become the "driver" in your career, and not just the "passenger".  You don't have to wait for a better salary, boss, shorter hours, or better career.  You can make it happen and even start today! You just need a plan and affordable support.

My 20+ years in marketing, training, and now recruitment have been the basis for creating a methodology that has been a game-changer for helping my clients get jobs exponentially faster, switch careers, and catapult into leadership roles. 

How deep you dive personally, and how far you fly professionally are really up to you!

What Clients Are Saying...

Testimonial“Career 5 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 Career 5 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 Career 5 method each and every time I needed to explore new paths! Thanks Career 5!”

Why OWN Your Career Growth and think YOU, Inc.? Because you are the ONLY person that can make your amazing life happen!

We were led down a path in school until we received our diplomas but were never really taught to manage or strategize our career growth.  Instead, we are just left to our own devices to figure this out.  But the job market is rapidly changing and in order to stay on top of it and get the personal and financial growth we want out of it, we have to take ownership of our growth...to start thinking of our careers as our own personal businesses...and like most businesses, you need a plan.
