Our History

The original Five O'Clock Club was formed in Philadelphia in 1883. It was made up of the leaders of the day, who shared their experiences "in a spirit of fellowship and good humor."

30 Years of Research

In 1986, The Five O’Clock Club started as a research-based organization. We began with trial and error testing of a variety of techniques to help job hunters find success. Working with a vast array of occupations, we tested our methods on employees, managers, and executives until we discovered the real solutions to the common and uncommon challenges of the job marketplace. Because the job market is constantly changing, our research never stops and our method constantly evolves to meet the needs of our clients. The Five O’Clock Club has flourished into what you see today.
