Career Networking Lunch with Tom Manatos

In Date Auction on August 11, 2011 by Tyler Gray

MANATOSIf you don’t know who Tom is, then you probably don’t know very much. While still finding the time to moderate a jobs list-serve that has helped hundreds, if not thousands of us find jobs Tom has one of the more impressive resumes you will hear about. Prior to his current gig as Senior Adviser to DNC Chair Rep. Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, Tom spent 8 years working for Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi where he was Deputy Director of Member Services where (among other things) he managed Pelosi’s “30-something” working group, composed of Democratic members of Congress under 40 years old who focus on listening and talking to the younger generation on issues of importance to them.

The winner of this auction will have the opportunity to lunch with Tom to discuss your current career trajectory and what you can to do to reach the top of DC’s A list.

From his bio on the Greek America Foundation:

Born and raised in Bethesda, MD, Manatos graduated from Cornell University in Ithaca, NY. In college he took a semester off to work for the Gore/Lieberman campaign, and later worked for then-U.S. Senate Banking Committee Chairman John Sarbanes. Most recently, Manatos completed his masters degree in government from Johns Hopkins University.

Manatos comes from a family involved with America’s leaders in Washington for more than 70 years. His grandfather, Mike Manatos, was the first Greek-American to work on Capitol Hill and was the first Greek-American to work in the White House where he was the head of Senate liaison for presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson. His father, Andrew Manatos, served as assistant secretary of commerce for president Jimmy Carter and as a private sector advisor to Democratic candidates Michael Dukakis, Al Gore and Bill Clinton. Tom and his brother Mike, who runs a family lobbying firm, couldn’t help but continue their family tradition. They were recently selected to Politico’s top ten list of DC’s most powerful siblings.

Tom Manatos was the second-youngest paid staff member when he worked at the National Headquarters for the Gore Presidential campaign in 2000. He then interned in both the Senate and the House. For the past eight years he has been with Pelosi’s office.
