What Our Happy Clients Are Saying

It is my pleasure to be able to recommend Tom for his services. Tom is an insightful professional who aided and supported me in my transition in the workplace. He asks frank and probing questions, provides in depth guidance and continually kept me on track to meet my goal objectives. At the same time, he is empathetic, encouraging, respectful and inspiring!

Jon MarzettaVP Sales & Marketing

Tom's knowledge and advice were very helpful during a recent job transition. His constructive feedback and support enabled me to identify strengths and be more strategic in my job hunting approach. I'm grateful that my former employer provided job placement services and that I had the opportunity to meet and work with Tom and his staff.

Sandra Guerra DeanProgram Manager & Clinical Social Worker

Tom was my coach, motivator, challenger, and guide through the career change process which is now one year behind me. As I reflect with the benefit of time, Tom was key to keeping me true to my defined goals, allowed me to explore alternate avenues within reason, drove me to carry and present a positive interview persona, and most importantly empowered me to not look back but to charge forward. My weekly meetings with Tom provided a disciplined check-in on prior week’s goals and developed the coming week’s focus. His sharing of the highs and lows of not only his own career experiences but those of his clients, gave me the assurance that my emotions, fears, and periodic elations were real and valid. Tom most importantly became a friend through his trusting, supportive and caring way. I cannot more highly recommend Tom to stand alongside through your career transitions.
