How we help you

“My Toombs consultant was instrumental in assisting me with my journey from a military career to civilian employment. She coached me through the job search and application process, reviewed cover letters, and helped me prepare for interviews. She was a tremendous help to me personally and allowed me to gain a better understanding of the current professional job market. I would strongly recommend her and the whole team at Toombs for anyone making a career transition.”

“I was downsized, and unfortunately this was not my first package over my 25-year career in the oil patch. I was thrilled when I was assigned to Toombs. Toombs remains unique as they continue to provide one-on-one and in-person career coaching, which I believe is critical to success.”

“I would like to congratulate Toombs for having a great consulting team, and I particularly enjoy the consultant I am working with. I’ve worked with him twice now and have to say he is a great representative for Toombs. He is calm, collected, compassionate, insightful, organized, very professional, and highly astute. Features which are incredibly helpful when handling such delicate situations.”
