This is not your typical placement company. Conceived by a group of veterans with decades of telecom experience, NextGen was created to provide a better means of recruiting and consulting in the telecom industry. Our novel structure is focused on the core issue: placing the most talented people in the field at the best companies.

The true differentiating factor is the comprehensive analysis we perform for all of our clients. We make time to invest in our clients’ expertise and our candidates’ unique needs. More importantly, we strive to build familiarity and trust with everyone we work with.

We have helped find jobs and employees in all 50 US states, Canada, plus several other global markets.

We operate from multiple locations across the US.

Get in touch with us to begin a fruitful and prosperous relationship and career.

Our Job Seekers Page:
  • Once you have us working on your behalf, you can rest easy we won’t be throwing your application at any opening we find.
  • We will strategically analyze what about your resume and experience makes you a fitting employee for one of the many Fortune 500 companies we work with.
  • Many of the candidates that come our way have been burned by the bigger, impersonal recruiters, often times receiving dismal results, which is why we take a different approach.
  • We truly believe that taking the time upfront will pay off with a more rewarding position in the near future.

At NextGen, we pride ourselves on providing a flourishing workplace. We want people with a work hard, play hard mentality.

Do you want more from your career? An environment where you reap the benefits of your hard work? If you answered yes to both of these questions, then don't wait to contact us:!

Find out why we are so unique: 

We ask each of our recent NextGen hires to tell their first impressions of NextGen. Here's what they say:

Ashley's first impression of NextGen:

"NextGen has set me up for success since the moment I was hired! They truly care about each individual, and have gone above and beyond to make the scary and stressful process of starting a new job as painless as possible. The support continues from the week you are hired with a comprehensive training program, to hands-on help, and various weekly learning activities, such as Lunches With Langley! Everyone is dedicated to making NextGen stand out by making meaningful and caring relationships with anyone they meet… plus the complimentary pizza and wine are sure to help!"

Gavin's first impression of NextGen:

“The 1-on-1 meeting's and training with everyone from the Vice President of Recruiting to a first-year recruiter in my first week showed me how much NextGen cares about my development, well-being, and commitment to the team. A genuinely fun work atmosphere with a balance of hard, challenging work and supportive, genuine people.”

Joelyn's first impression of NextGen:

"NextGeners were very welcoming! Even folks who worked in different offices, on different coasts, offered to set up calls to chat, introduce me to their teams, and answer any questions I might have had. It is a vibrant office environment, where everyone puts in the work and still knows how to have a good time."

Mae's first impression of NextGen:

“NextGen has been a positive experience since day one. I was hired without having any previous direct recruiting experience and have been mentored every step of the way. My teammates have answered all my questions and provided the appropriate tools, ensuring my success and enabling me to start making my own deals. I’m excited for “wine down” Fridays and my future here with this rapidly growing company.”

NextGen Gives Back!

It’s been proven that employee engagement surrounded by a cause is an important tool to grow employee relationships, enhance workplace morale, and help build critical skill sets and expertise (Olson, 2013).

    I have been working at NEXTGEN GLOBAL RESOURCES full-time (Less than a year)


    One of the top reasons I joined NextGen is the people. The other, their vision. As a virtual employee, I feel included in the HQ activities, day to day updates, questions answered and support when needed. Onboarding and training is always "ongoing" and it's up to you to continue to want to learn and develop. This is when you join any company! Our clients are wonderful and diverse within the telecom space and truly look at us as partners.


    Nothing that I can think of at the time.

    Advice to Management

    Positive Experience
    Average Interview


    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 weeks. I interviewed at NEXTGEN GLOBAL RESOURCES (Chicago, IL) in August 2015.


    I had my initial phone interview with the wonderful Samantha Balaton. She brought me in to the office a few times. I met with a bunch of people and enjoyed every minute. Sam walked me through the entire interview process and greeted me at the door every time I came to meet with someone. She stayed incredibly professional, easy going, and made me excited to come back.
