Meet The President, Mike Stapinski

Founder Of Next Step Systems
image Mike Stapinski has the ability to match the right talent with the right opportunity. He is a top Chicago IT recruiter with experience in recruiting for major cities across the United States. He is a long-term technical recruiter and technical search advisor.

Mike's professional recruiting career began in 1986. At this stage in his career, he was seeking an opportunity where he could leverage his skills in the Computer Information Systems field. Like every job seeker, he was looking for an opportunity where he could utilize his strengths and grow. After evaluating his options, he decided to change his initial course and pursue a career in technical recruiting. He was offered a position to work as a technical recruiter with a national personnel agency and started a new career. He quickly learned how to apply his technical knowledge and interpersonal skills to achieve results for his clients. After a few years of recruiting, he earned an award for the top consultant in the nation in the Information Systems division. Mike was promoted several times and started to move up the corporate ladder. He has hired and trained several employment consultants, many of whom are currently recruiting for various types of corporations and other search firms.

In 1995, Mike co-founded Next Step Systems, LTD. His long lasting career as a recruiter has been built on strong ethical values and his ability to match the right talent with the right opportunity.

The gap between finding the best IT talent and hiring the right information technology candidate is substantial. At Next Step Systems, our company understands this distinction, because that is what impacts our customers. Too often the technology applicant with the most experience may not be the best choice for you and your team. Next Step Systems makes the technology recruiting process effective and meaningful when you partner with us, while accurately reflecting who you are in the technical marketplace.
