1-on-1 Job Coaching for College Students & New Grads

We were amazed at the difference Next Great Step made in our son’s ability to understand his strengths and the value that he brings to an organization. In short order he was able to clearly articulate how the skills he has developed made him a good fit for the jobs he was targeting. We can’t recommend Next Great Step highly enough – and have already engaged them to help our daughter get a summer internship.

Private Coaching is right for my college student or graduate if...


  • Prefers working one-on-one

  • Prefers optimal personalization to prioritize needs

  • Requires flexibility in scheduling. This works well with students who are managing academics, have urgent interviews, or individualized learning styles.

  • Needs customized pace and delivery of content (accelerated or slower)

  • Offered on a rolling basis

So which program has a better outcome, group or private coaching?

Both offer outstanding outcomes where on average 90% of clients are landing the job or internship they desire within 3-5 months of working with us. One of the most important predictors of success is that a client needs to be committed to put the time and effort into this process. They have to want the guidance and be willing to follow through on our recommendations.

We love when enthusiastic parents are excited about our program, but we need your college student to feel the same to engage with us. And if they are not ready, that’s ok. We will be here when the time is right for them.
