Our Mission
Pioneering New and More Effective Methods for Career Advancement

As a higher echelon member of career management, job search coaching and resume writing communities for over 30  years, we separate ourselves from all other services, i.e. business writers, employment agencies, secretarial services and the myriad of  newly hatched and recently down-sized recruiters.

We are seasoned corporate recruiting, coaching and resume experts with long-time memberships in global and domestic employment communities. We are well-respected and practice with the highest integrity.

You can depend on Worthington Career Services for insight into career goals and all aspects of planning. Our credentials are impeccable and our endorsements, dating back to 1973, speak for themselves. Few resume firms offer our insights into the employment markets, corporate landscapes, economic indicators and potent methodologies that allow Worthington Career candidates to surpass all others.

You may not know it, but it is often not the most qualified candidate who gets the job! It's the one who presents himself in the best light that matters. The one with the most powerful resume presentation, the one most prepared for the interview … the one sometimes least likely to win but who is afforded the competitive edge!  What makes a Manager, Director or C-level select a Worthington Career candidate from hundreds of resume submissions? Why are Worthington Career Services' candidates granted job offers?

You've heard the expression, "Almost doesn't count." Well in applying for a job this couldn't be closer to the truth! Applicants today are up against hundreds--even thousands, of other applicants for usually one position, one opening! Those odds are very slim. And though coming in second place counts for something in the Olympics, a runner-up job candidate is still without a job.

Worthington Career Services' Executive Director personally works with all clients, both domestically and internationally. Our entry-level clients are afforded the same level of commitment as our CEO, CFO, COO and CIO candidates. Every project is awarded individualized attention and strategies are configured to optimize personal advancement. Special issues, i.e., "myths of maturity", terminations, reference issues and lack of undergraduate and graduate degrees require tactical consideration that our employment expertise is well-prepared to offer.

I have talked to numerous people who have used Worthington Career Services, and they are all complimentary on the counsel and guidance she provides.

The professional product that was put forth 'sold' the candidates' accomplishments and made them desirable for a client to review and possibly hire.

Getting Your Career in Shape

This is the main time of year when we attempt to improve. Talk to any fitness center, stop-smoking clinic or career coach and they’ll all tell you how brisk business becomes once December ends.   We believe that when the clock strikes twelve, as it does 364 other evenings each year, everything changes and we become transformed into folks capable of immediate change.

I believe with good planning and reasonable expectations anyone can begin to shape up their careers. Here are some tips you can use this year to keep your career in shape:

  • Secure a new credential. This can be the year when you begin your MBA or other credential. Even if you have to take baby steps just to begin to add to your value, get started. The doldrums of winter disappear when we give purpose to improving our skills and knowledge. Don't be discouraged by the long road ahead in completing your program. Just getting and staying on that road will remind you that a destination of improvement is in your future.
  • Don't become a full time student. While many cannot afford to take a hiatus, those who can leave the job for a year or more tend not be as appealing when they return as those candidates with seamless employment records. While challenging, it’s far more admirable to prospective employers to secure an advanced degree while on the job. Remember this – another great job may not be as easy to retrieve at your convenience.
  •  Give yourself a promotion. Seek to learn a new skill with the employer you currently have. You don't need to change jobs to increase your value if you increase the functions you perform on the job. Am I suggesting that you take on even more work? Yes, if you can leverage it as an additional future offering. Always keep in mind those required specifications for that promotion of new job. Never miss an opportunity to gain future value.
  • Keep your business clean. Recently at a networking event I inquired about an individual no longer with a company and proceeded to get an earful about all the wrongdoing that allegedly caused what I learned was a termination. While the terminated executive's story was less than impressive, more revealing was the poor judgment of the messenger. Word spreads when individuals gossip and no one ever forgives a person who takes pleasure in the misfortune of others. Word spreads about toxic individuals and I have seen them rejected for hire.
