About Tom

I've been working as a recruiter since the mid 1990's in a variety of industries, including high-tech, biotech, and for the last 3-1/2 years in the aviation/defense industry. I feel very comfortable discussing such things as resume writing, interviewing skills, and general job search strategies.
