Our Approach

Our Philosophy

We believe you should, Love What You Do! You have a unique set of talents and gifts to share with the world. Identify them and execute them, daily. It's that simple.

Our Story

What's 5:18?

It's our founder's birthday and, coincedentally, it was last call before her evening train departed for home.

Our Story

After spending 12 happy years in higher education helping young professionals align their passions with their careers, fate stepped in. Two years into another business venture, a friend asked for a resume review and one resume snow-balled into Five8Teen.

We believe that your passion can be your work because we live it every day.
