On Thursday, September 30th MAP and MASA hosted a professional development webinar with Tom Manatos

Tom Manatos is the Vice President of Government Relations at Spotify. He coordinates Spotify’s US policy development and advocacy on a broad range of issues and leads the interactions between the company and US government officials often in concert with other industry leaders in technology, music, and entertainment industries.

Early in his career, Tom developed a passion of helping people find jobs on Capitol Hill and in politics. Feeling he was in a privileged opportunity working in a Capitol Hill 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. Tom’s list quickly became the top political, policy and government job service in the country helping thousands of people find jobs. Tom and his wife Dana, who is a Republican, run, a nonpartisan jobs service where hundreds of jobs in the government, non-profit, campaign and private sectors are posted each week.

Tom shared the best tips and tricks for networking and developing as young professionals on the Hill at all levels of their career. Tom shared his own experience as a young congressional staffer when he was a Senior Advisor to both the Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and the Chair of the Democratic National Committee, Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
