Graduate School Mission Statements

Take the intimidation out of the statement of purpose or mission statement required for entry into medical school, law school or graduate business school. Worthington Career Services offers a proven successful method to communicate your message. Your statement must reflect a passion for your future commitment that many are unable to convey in a 500 to 1500-word essay.

Worthington Career Services understands what graduate schools seek in mission-driven statements. No two graduate school applicants are alike and each must build a case for acceptance in extremely competitive academic environments. Unlike a resume or biography, the depths of life experience may be what delivers your commitment within a narrative message. Our Executive Director works with every applicant personally, harvesting information and advising on theme, content and delivery. Your talents will make contributions! Allow Worthington to enable that opportunity!

We are especially helpful to the "borderline" candidate, however virtually all contenders benefit from our well-crafted presentations based on your goals. You will fervently prepare for high scores on the LSAT, GMAT and GRE…and seek the help of experts to enhance your results. Why risk your admission with a poorly prepared or mediocre statement?

Interviewing for entry into graduate school programs is challenging. Unlike job interviews, candidates may not have decades of experience from which to draw. Today many graduate school applicants are seeking new careers. Worthington Career Services conducts interview prep sessions for entry into graduate school programs based on skills, areas of expertise and achievements that will demonstrate future contributions based on past performance. Be prepared to present!

  I didn't know where to begin! The method of assisting me with organizing my thoughts was so supportive. I was actually embarrassed to need help until I realized that my goal was to become a physician, not a writer. You were willing to meet with me, spend the time to get to know me and help me put my ideas into words. You enabled me to create a mission statement that delivered my message. Having worked in laboratories most of my undergraduate career, I had very little experience with interviewing. Through your practice sessions I became confident and was able to communicate on-demand, something I had never been able to do. Janice, you touch people's lives, something I am also committed to. Thanks again for the help.”

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.
