Gina Harrison is bright, driven, passionate and—until recently—underemployed. Within weeks of working with a NextJob career coach to help build her personal brand and fine-tune her job-seeking skills, Gina landed a great job worthy of her degree.


We come out of college excited and ambitious yet with little guidance on how to keep building ourselves as professionals for a successful career future.

Having a career coach opened my eyes to what is truly meant by the term ‘job market’, how I fit in and stand out in it, and the simple yet effective steps every person can take to get to where they want to go. I am very grateful that I had the opportunity to work with a NextJob coach.

  1. Resume: You only have a few seconds to get a hiring manager’s attention. Write a resume that makes them want to read on instead of move on.
  2. Career Direction: People tend to be happier and better paid in jobs that fit – set a direction that matches your talents and how you’re built.
  3. Visible Jobs: Don’t be late for jobs that are easy to find. Master the best strategies with job boards, staffing companies, online job agents and more.
  4. Hidden Jobs: Are you missing the 50% of all job openings that are “hidden?” Learn to network and use social media effectively to find hidden jobs and get your foot in the door.
  5. Contacting Employers: Avoid common mistakes in how you contact employers. Learn what employers expect as well as the unspoken rules.
  6. Cover Letter: Get to the bottom line with words that count. Write a cover letter to go with your resume that will get it—and you—noticed.
  7. Long Resume: Be ready for your next interview armed with handy details and a document that shows you are willing to go the extra mile.
  8. Interviewing: Avoid nervous interviews by learning: 1) the top interview questions, 2) the 3 key questions to ask, 3) the 10 common mistakes to avoid & 4) the right way to ask for the job.

In college, Nick got his degree in Recreation, Sports and Tourism. He was active while in college, serving as a Residential Advisor, a Communications Coordinator and an intern in the hospitality industry.

Nick worked with his NextJob coach to hone his interviewing skills to secure two job offers and land a job in his preferred career.


I’ve been applying for jobs, getting the interview, but never the job offer. My NextJob coach taught me interviewing skills to go out and get the job and prepare for my next two interviews.

Through it all I felt more empowered and I got two offers! There’s no better feeling than being in your career. Fifth Third Bank and my NextJob coach helped me and they can help you.

Adam is a recent graduation who studied Information Technology and was looking for a job after finishing his Master’s degree.

Working with a NextJob coach, he found “exactly the right job” in less than 10 weeks.


The coaches at NextJob were experts at getting to the core of what was really important in my job search, and they had the skills and knowledge to effectively leverage and market my personal brand to make me the best possible candidate for the job I always wanted.

I was unemployed for more than 6 months after graduation and then found exactly the right job in under 10 weeks with their help.

– Adam

Even though I sent 50+ resumes out per week, I received minimal activity. You altered my self-marketing strategy, helped me build my networking pipeline and . . . I found the company that would eventually offer me an executive management position a couple weeks later.

Thank you and NextJob for the excellent help...


I was in a pool of over 300 applicants and was able to make it through all the interviews and finally got the job. I believe my job coach was hugely responsible for that.


My resume is 1000% better than when I started!


I feel way more confident in job search, and in knowing what skills it takes to be successful. Between your expertise and the software I am gaining so much knowledge about how the whole job process works and how to tackle it as a whole.


I hugely appreciated the advice I received from my coach. She always put thought into my personal situation. Her emails with advice and other job options I could look at for work were so helpful.


I can’t thank my coach and the program enough. They taught me the “secrets” to finding the job that has made a huge difference in my life and future.


I can't thank you enough for all your support and encouragement in this process. You and the program provided me with some great resources and tips and really helped me to be more confident during the interview and offer process.


Thank you so very much in your assistance with my resume composition! Today I accepted a position at a local company, full of great people and possibilities! Wanted to let you know and thank you again because you did make a difference for me!


I LOVE IT, I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT IT!!! I love the workshops, the software, I love my coach . . . you have been there for me so easy to get a hold of and you always get right back to me, gave me great advise, you are resourceful, and I have been telling everybody, about NextJob, my family, my friends, anyone who will listen.


I just wanted to tell you how much I love NextJob's extensive and comprehensive service, your personal care, and your commitment.


What I valued most about the process was the Resume Builder, listening to the videos and my coach who could be a neutral party with an objective viewpoint and focused on building my confidence and motivation.


Thank you so much! Very excited… started a couple weeks ago and it is amazing so far! Had two other offers but picked {this company} because it is an amazing company, my manager is fantastic and I think it is a great next step in my career! Thank you again for ALL your help and I look forward to staying in touch!
