To succeed in the job market,
you need a competitive edge.

As a recent grad, does this sound familiar?


I’ve sent out a lot of resumes and I am still waiting for a response.


How do I turn my college major into a job I want?


I got the first interview but didn’t make it to the next round.


I’m still living at home and I'm ready to be financially independent.

Next Great Step is the solution for your career concerns.

The Next Great Step program will enable millennials to step into the world of work with a personal roadmap, to help navigate them towards success. This program teaches students how to present their value to employers, and get the job they seek.

Our expert career consulting team works with current students and recent grads, their parents, and even colleges & universities.
