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!

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. To see how empowered they are after this process is a gift for me.

The Career 5 Roadmap© CMS (Career Management System) was developed to help you tap into your inner drives and talents, strategize, organize, and actualize your amazing career.

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

What's the difference between being a driver or passenger of your career?

Need a job quickly?  Use our Job Search Roadmap© to cut your search time in half.

We're here to guide, support, and empower you step-by-step through the entire job search process with different levels of affordability.  

Job searching has changed drastically in the last 5 years. We created a system to quickly and effectively guide you step-by-step through the process using a unique marketing strategy, funnel, and resume and email templates. Utilize our Job Search Roadmap and coaching to align your strengths to the job market to create a market fit by working through 5 key areas.

5 key areas that increase your confidence in your value:

Driven (Full Service)

Sit back and relax while we do the work for you! We develop and optimize your brand, and your entire job marketing package, and organize your efforts so you can market and network out confidently. Access our Interview & Salary Negotiations Prep Software for one month to rehearse, rehearse, rehearse. We also reach out to 5o potential hiring managers on your behalf.

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 who you are and how you want to contribute your value on this planet can be a game changer!

It provides clarity from the inside out. This brings you an inner confidence that your employers, clients, and colleagues innately respond to, that also carries over to your personal life.  We work with all of our clients to build authentic brands!


 The hidden costs of an ineffective job search strategy can really add up...

Extra Jobs You Have to Apply
Weeks Lost from an Unoptimized Resume
Wages Lost from a Diluted Strategy
TImes You Start Over from Interview Problems

Job Search

Need individual services like interview or salary negotiations prep? 

We've got you covered.  We have researched and targeted the best ways to assure that you go into your interview with confidence, and can land the job and negotiate for the salary you deserve based on your value and researched data. Individual sessions are always available.

Strategic Coaching

Interviews have changed so much in the past 5-10 years. We want you prepared, and to get you into a marketing/sales mindset where you are answering the pain points or speaking to the vision of the position.  You want to go in with an authentic unique brand concept of who you are and the results you can bring to this position.  Your results statements are key and often overlooked and ultimately determine the salary you are offered through negotiations.

Big Interview

When you go into your interview or begin to salary negotiate, not only do you have to be strategic but you want to be confident in conveying your value and that takes practice.  By rehearsing with our level and industry-specific software, your efforts will make the most of your career and salary trajectories. Rehearse, rehearse, rehearse!

We also want to help you grow your career. 

Building your career is similar to building a business. It has a building blocks process. Many people organically work through some of these areas throughout their career, but you gain far greater traction when you work through this as a whole.

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!”    -Suzie L.
