Parent Feedback

Check out what these parents had to say about their experiences!

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. We can’t recommend Next Great Step highly enough – and have already engaged them to help our daughter get a summer internship."

Next Great Step worked with our daughter who felt lost after graduating from a very prestigious private Boston area university. Their help was targeted and professionally done, with insight into what the other side is looking for in a candidate. We could not speak highly enough about the professional advice, guidance and reassurance Next Great Step has provided for our daughter."

Next Great Step was the missing link to helping my son get a job out of college. My son became more articulate, concise and confident when interviewing and pursuing opportunities. If you think your son or daughter needs an edge when interviewing for a first job or internship, I would highly recommend Next Great Step."
