Our Values

Next Step Systems is a Chicago IL based IT recruiting firm specializing in job placement for IT Professionals nationally. We are an Information Technology recruiting service with technical recruiters. We believe in a thorough, ethical approach to IT recruitment. Too many firms are only interested in numbers, placing as many information technology candidates as possible without paying enough attention to needs, skill sets and genuine career opportunities. This leads to a high turnover of staff and has a negative financial impact on businesses and individuals alike. Our main commitment is to ensure that we place the right IT people in the right IT roles, improving retention rates across the industry and ensuring that we develop long-lasting relationships that are built on trust and our unique attention to detail. Our values regarding service quality and ethics are pillars of our success.

We are not a high volume, quick turnover firm. We deal with full-time roles and real career paths, not temporary stop gaps. The candidates we place receive support and often find themselves in dynamic roles that offer progress up the career ladder. For the companies we represent, this is cost-effective, motivating and helps them present themselves in a positive light as employers, in an era when these kinds of values are, unfortunately, too often overlooked. In short, at Next Step Systems, we are passionate about people.
