Career Concepts, Inc., a human capital consulting firm and the Philadelphia office of Career Partners International, celebrates 25 years of business on April 25, 2013.

Welcoming its first outplacement candidates in 1988, Career Concepts, Inc. today enjoys helping thousands of people navigate the turbulent job market to achieve their career goals. Throughout the last 25 years, Career Concepts has expanded into a full service human capital consulting firm offering its clients professional and executive search, coaching, leadership development, executive career transition, outplacement, and human resource and organizational consulting.

Joe Dougherty, Executive Vice President and co-owner of Career Concepts, attributes the company’s success to years of dedication and hard work coupled with determination, intuition, and integrity. “As with any growing company there have been challenges but our corporate clients keep reminding us that they trust us and they need our help,” commented Dougherty. They’re the ones who brag that Career Concepts is the best human capital firm in the region. From our first client 25 years ago to our 2,000 clients today, what a great ride it has been!”

Sharon Imperiale, President and co-owner of Career Concepts, believes that the company is successful for two reasons. Imperiale explains, “First and foremost, we always focus on the customer. That’s a basic that sometimes gets lost over time, but not here. Second, it is critically important to have the best people on our team in the best position for them and our organization and then we let them perform. Too many owners exercise too much restraint…balance is critical to success and growth.”

Chief Operating Officer Brian Clapp joined the firm two years ago. Clapp views his role as ensuring that the people, processes, and technology are all aligned for the sole purpose of driving operational performance and customer satisfaction. Clapp added, “When an organization like Career Concepts continues to ensure that their goals are aligned to their strategic focus and to the customer’s demands, there is little surprise that the company has been so successful. I am proud to be a part of this growing team.”

Career Concepts, Inc. is continuously recognized as a top management consulting firm and a top woman-owned business in the Philadelphia area. In 1993, Career Concepts became an equity partner in Career Partners International. Career Partners International operates in over 200 locations in 40+ countries. Dougherty, Imperiale and Clapp wish to thank their loyal customers, strategic partners, and internal team that works hard to make every day a successful day. The company is well poised for even more success over the next 25 years.
