What Tom's clients say:
Tom provided valuable professional insight as I started my career search coming out of college. His perspective on the local market, thoughts on salary range and best practices related to the interview process was really impactful. Tom is confident in his approach and works hard to make sure you’re feeling the same every step of the way. I encourage any recent graduate to reach out to Tom and Engaged Pursuit!
Tehva R., Seattle WA, September 2018
Working with Tom was super easy and the value he was able to bring to my career search was immeasurable. He provided perspective, reassurance and insight as I started the path of exploring career opportunities outside of college. The Professional Story + Dashboard created clarity and intent around my search – and both really helped as we partnered on the interview prep. I highly recommend working with Tom if you’re about to graduate and looking to start your career off right.
Liz M., Los Angeles CA, April 2017
Tom knows how to navigate the complicated post-graduate professional world. He provided clarity, perspective, and insight to get me in front of the right organizations. I used the Professional Story as the foundation for everything – my resume, my cover letter, my LinkedIn profile and my interviews. I secured a great full-time role only months after starting to work with Tom – and I’m still loving my job every day. I recommend Engaged Pursuit over and over again!
