Testimonials

Beth was a tremendous wealth of knowledge and a very effective career counselor. We worked together on how to market myself to businesses by exploiting my education, core skills and past work experiences.Prior to working with Beth, my past interviews had produced no positive outcomes. Through a clearly defined step by step program, she helped guide me in learning and applying the necessary tools to produce successful outcomes.

Beth helped my son understand what he wanted from a position and what he had to offer. She helped to articulate his strengths and assets in a convincing, confident and clear manner. She taught him how to prepare for each interview, ask appropriate questions for each company and how to direct and control the conversation. Within a matter of weeks of working with Beth, before even finishing, he was able to secure a great job and successfully interview for others. Beth’s approach with young job seekers is to help them learn how to present and differentiate themselves from the rest of the pack. I would highly recommend using Beth to help your son or daughter secure their first meaningful job.

It’s rare that you come across standout talent like Beth. I have had the pleasure of working with her for about 9 months, when she assisted me while finding a new job post-grad, as well as transitioning to another job. Beth did not only help answer my emails with questions and edits at 11pm, but asked thought provoking questions that brought out my strengths and core skills for interviews. I would recommend Beth to any college student, graduate or young professional looking to improve their professional facet. I look forward to continuing my work with Beth.

I had the great experience of working with Beth for 8 sessions. I felt that her approach was very helpful, informative and efficient. She helped me gain a lot of clarity and confidence by helping me identify and hone in on what my core skills are. I gained a better understanding of how to present myself consistently and more accurately to potential employers and networking connections. I now feel much more confident and prepared going into any professional conversation. I would definitely recommend her services to any students or recent graduates looking for guidance when it comes to approaching their careers.

Beth was the missing link to helping my son get a job out of college. He was motivated and interviewing for jobs, but just needed help tying it all together. Beth understood how to communicate with him. She helped him understand his skills and how to demonstrate that in a conversation. As a result, my son became more articulate, concise and confident when interviewing and pursuing opportunities. Most importantly he landed a great job with an accounting firm even before he completed Beth’s program. If you think your son or daughter needs an edge when interviewing for a first job or internship, I would highly recommend Beth at Next Great Step.

I had the pleasure of working with Beth for four months during my search for a job. While working with Beth, I was able to fully understand what my greatest strengths and skills were as well as how to convey them to employers. She was very helpful throughout my interview process and while building my network. Beth is very professional, very flexible with her time and is always available with advice and tips. As finding jobs becomes increasingly difficult, I am very grateful to have Beth alongside.

Beth worked with our daughter who felt lost after graduating from a very prestigious private Boston area university. Finding that her school’s career counseling department didn’t live up to the hype they promised when visiting as a prospective student, but instead found their version of job-search help amounted to directing her to websites. Beth’s help was targeted and professionally done, with insight into what the other side is looking for in a candidate. Beth continues to follow up with our daughter even after she’s been working for awhile to make sure she continues to pursue her job goals. We could not speak highly enough about the professional advice, guidance and reassurance Beth has provided for our daughter.

I can’t thank Beth enough for helping me practice my interviewing skills. As a Junior, it was crucial for me to get an internship for the summer and with the skills Beth taught me, I was able to accomplish this. She was able to work with me over video conference while I was abroad, and was still capable of giving me the tips I needed to obtain an internship- even with being 3,000 miles away. I would 100% recommend Beth’s services to anyone struggling with the job process.

Beth galvanized me into being confident in my positive traits just by making me realize my potential. She is easy to talk to and helps lay out your plans in an organized way that makes the job search easy to navigate. I would absolutely recommend her as someone to aid you in the job process.

I worked with Beth for eight sessions over several months to help me with my job search. She was great at helping me understand and learn some of the techniques that will make me stand out as a candidate. Beth was also able to add a solid structure to my job search, making me think about what my most marketable skills were to an employer as well as just simply thinking about who I wanted to reach out to. Everything seemed very personalized and allowed me to think about things that I had not thought about previously related to a job search. I would definitely recommend her to someone in college, or recently graduated, who is looking for an internship or a full-time position.

Working with Beth was a great experience, and ultimately, she was key in me landing my first job out of college. Beth helped me identify my core strengths and understand how my strengths could add tangible value to a company. After working with Beth, I feel far more confident and prepared to communicate with professionals, ranging from C-level executives to entry-level employees. Overall, my experience with Beth was very rewarding because she was able to provide the individual attention that a Career Services group at a large undergraduate university cannot provide. I highly recommend working with her.

I had a wonderful experience working with Beth and I would recommend her to recent graduates looking to sharpen their job search skills and increase their chances of landing the right job.

By my last session with Beth I felt confident promoting my brand and core strengths and I received three job offers!

Wanted to give a big shout out to Beth Hendler Grunt at Next Great Step! She helped my college junior learn lifelong interviewing skills, helped him with his resume and LinkedIn profile and coached him on business etiquette and acumen which helped him land a terrific summer internship in his field. Beth was great to work with as she really relates to the kids. She is a great coach and mentor. Would highly recommend!

I had a great experience working with Beth and Next Great Step. She helped me analyze my skills and values to find a balance for future career choices. Beth taught me how to navigate the maze that is corporate culture. Starting from the interview process, she always made herself available for coaching and advice. Beth is a very good listener and gives great feedback based on what she learns from you. All in all, I have had a very successful experience working with her.

Beth has helped me figure out what my strengths are that I can bring to a company and how to use those to my advantage in any future job I may hold. Beth has also given me pointers on how to network around the office in a more efficient and effective way. Beth has also helped me think about my future goals and where I would like to be in 5 years allowing me to plan out my career path accordingly instead of just going at it blindly.
