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.
