Design and “Scale Up” Your Amazing Career

Amazing Career

No matter what stage you are in your career, you have the ability to “scale up”. You can have an amazing career if you just invest enough forethought, time, and focus to design and create a career path with an actionable plan that you can see through. This is our main goal here at Career5. We want to help you make the most of your strengths and talents and to support you in driving your career with intention and meaning. 

 When you become the “driver” of your career instead of a “passenger”- it is a game changer. When you think of your career as your personal business- YOU, Inc…it’s a game changer! It takes some effort and creativity, but the ride is 100% worth it because you are growing and thriving along the way.

You are no longer waiting for a promotion, to be recognized for your efforts, or to be paid what you are worth because you know that these rules no longer apply to your way of thinking. You set yourself up to make opportunities continuously arise for you. 

 

Typically for our clients, this package has improved career and salary trajectories by 5-10K+ annually by utilizing fast-track efforts for growth… as well as increased happiness, work-life balance, and personal growth due to carving out the right career path for them.

 How It Works

Think of our Career5 Roadmap® platform as a way of sifting out what you really want out of your work and what jobs to target. Then you can map out a plan and access our tools to get you there.

The Career Design & Fast-Track package is derived from the Career5 Roadmap® methodology and is broken up into two roadmaps that are meant to greatly enhance the coaching process: My Career Roadmap and My Job Search RoadmapBased on your career or job search needs, you target those specific areas to work through.  Most packages allow access to both of these roadmaps since we want our clients to have all the tools necessary to find new job opportunities and grow their careers. The two roadmaps go hand and hand.

 

Career5 RoadmapMy Career Roadmap takes you through 5 phases (below) to strategically align and map our your long-term life and career goals to get life balance and make impact.
