Do you want to work in D.C. but find the competitive and complicated job market completely unhelpful and confusing? You’re not alone, which is exactly why Tom Manatos, the founder of TomManatosJobs.com, the top job and internship website for Capitol Hill, policy, political jobs nationwide, created his website. Tom will host a career workshop for Georgetown students on Wednesday, February 13th from 6:00PM – 7:00PM in the GU Politics Office, Healy G-18, to help students better understand the D.C. job market and provide some tricks of the trade for finding an internship or job in the nation’s Capital.
After working on the Gore/Lieberman campaign and interning in the U.S. Senate, Tom Manatos started as a staff assistant in the Democratic Whip’s office in the U.S. House of Representatives. Feeling he was in a privileged opportunity working in a leadership office, Tom decided to help fellow young professionals who were interested in politics and government by sending job and internship openings to his friends. As time went on, the word spread and the list grew. Between working for the Democratic Leader and the Speaker of the House, Tom met and married Dana Edwards who was working at the White House for President George W. Bush. After this bipartisan union, Tom’s list grew exponentially. Today, Tom and Dana work together to help job seekers find their perfect position.
