NextPath Career Partners

NextPath is a boutique recruiting firm servicing both local and national clients to hire outstanding people in professional roles including Sales, Recruiting, Marketing, Customer Success, Executive Leadership, and Consulting. We started in 2018, by a team of career recruiters who thrive on clients and candidates successes.  We know the way to our success is to focus all our efforts on yours.  Simply put when you win we win. At NextPath, our team takes the time to understand your targets to better align us to get you the outcomes that will make a difference.  By having a relationship with each of our customers we truly get your business.  This allows us to make great matches which might not have materialized off searching text on a candidates resume.   This allows us to  elevate beyond being a transactional vendor trying just to fill a job but rather become your “go to”​ provider of talent that can transform your business.  We get incredible satisfaction from seeing our clients and candidates achieve.  It’s our mission to help play a small part of that success in what we do each and every day.  Our goal for NextPath is not to be the biggest recruitment firm but rather we want customers to consistently say we are the best.  We understand there are quicker paths to growth in this strong economy but for our team it is more important to have a brand each of us is proud to call ours than taking shortcuts.
