“Nextstep have been the peak during our year as a partner company at JIBS. The fair has been helpful in creating new contacts with the students, which in turn has given us the opportunity to inform them about what we can offer as a future employer. The contact calls we have had during nextstep have several times led to recruitment.”
“Nextstep is a organized meeting place for businesses and students. You will have opportunities to, in a relaxed manner, establish contacts and build relations for the future.”
The nextstep team consists of five different teams apart from the two project managers; Sales, Sponsor, Marketing, Event and logistics. As a member of nextstep, days, nights and weekends goes to ensuring the superiority of the fair and to making the best project possible.
