With our Career Accelerator Program®, we help you accelerate your career using a guided 5-step framework where you pick your track so you can move from market-rate salary/compensation to value-based salary/compensation:
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.
Become the "driver" of your career instead of a "passenger".
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 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.
Based on your needs to grow your career, here are some ways we can work with you:
Strategize How You Will Grow Your Career & Salary
Let's review at least two positions forward and strategize what networks, training, and key projects you need to get you there, so you can actually make those long-term dreams happen!
Fast-Track Your Career to What's Important to You
A little forethought will go a long way in fast-tracking your career so you can personally and professionally grow. Let's dial-in your personal brand, value/results, leadership abilities, and perception to assure you can make true traction.
Your salary does not have to reside in a fixed range determined by HR. Like any business, your salary should be based on the value you bring to work, and we can teach you how to grow it!
"I did not even realize how important it was to track my results from the projects and grant money I brought in annually. I was bringing exponentially more in than my colleagues but did not realize that I could negotiate a higher salary based on this. Career5 provided reports, and we strategized efforts to increase my salary by 20% that year based on this value. I was able to travel more and breathe easier with this salary. It also brought unexpected side effects like job security, outside opportunities, and confidence in my ability to provide because I now know how to grow this aspect of my career." - Lisa A.
Through coaching, we will work through your measurable statements, dial-in mindsets, and assure you know exactly what you bring to the table and can confidently convey your value and past successes for the raise you deserve!
Typically for our clients, this package improves their salary trajectory by at least $5-10K+ annually, sometimes substantially more.
Did you know that it's recommended to look for a higher position every two years?
Yes, Ladders came out with a study about this that shows if workers stay within a company for longer than two years, over time they will get paid 50% less vs. looking for a new position. You have to stay on top of your own growth... much like growing your own business.

Earn a salary based on your value, not market-rate.
You have one shot at getting a salary based on your value. It's typically assumed you will negotiate higher in some way, even if you feel they are offering the best they can provide. A company will tell you if it's unable to go higher or not, but you want to make the most over time because your entire salary trajectory is affected by this one process. Let us help you through it.
