I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to all our clients and their families for putting their trust in Next Great Step to help launch their careers. It has been our honor and privilege to work with hundreds of clients as they embark on landing their first internship or job.
We supported over 100 college students and graduates in 2022 with interests ranging from sports marketing to engineering, animation to public relations, and many others.
Regardless of interest, we provided the tools to enable clients to land the job they deserve. We advised many young adults – those who are in college, recent graduates, or those who graduated 2, 3, or 4 years ago who started on a path but needed to pivot. Many of these clients went to college or graduated during the pandemic. We listened, guided, laughed, and cried with you. But most importantly, we saw clients who were once unsure, are now confident, clear, and achieving success.
In 2022, our clients landed internships and their first jobs at companies such as ESPN, GoodDay New York on Fox, Lockheed Martin, Chase, Goldman Sachs, Briggs Engineering, and many others. These were not achieved because they “knew” someone or had a family connection. These firms selected them because they understood how to make strategic connections and demonstrate their value in helping these companies to achieve success.
Like many of you, my sons are in college and graduate school. I understand what it feels like to watch your young adult navigate this process.
NGS also achieved significant milestones this year:
- We launched our new book “The Next Great Step: The Parents’ Guide to Launching Your New Grad into a Career”. And we hit Amazon’s #1 Best Seller in 3 categories!!!
- Supported more clients this year than ever with over 90% landing the job they deserve
- Provided over 8000 hours of group and private coaching
- Received over 75 – Five star Google reviews
- Featured on NBC News, CBS News, CNN, Kiplinger, and multiple podcast and news outlets
We are excited for 2023 as we expand our team with additional coaches and enhanced programs to support our client needs.
If you know a student or grad that needs help navigating the job search, we kick off the new year with our Fast-Start Group Coaching program. Contact us to register for this successful program.
We also are giving back. NGS has made charitable donations to the Global Empowerment Mission, and Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges. We selected these charities for their focus on disaster relief, food insecurity, and young adults who need support.
With our most sincere gratitude, we wish you and your family a safe, healthy, and peaceful holiday season.
