    Accepted in the Houston, Texas office upon graduation

    "Coming into this internship I was very excited to learn all about sales and the fundamentals of prospecting and phone calling. In all honesty, I was having a very hard time on the phone in the beginning of my journey here. I was lacking confidence on the phone and would let prospective customers' objections take a toll on me. It wasn’t until I reached out to my sales leader and other training managers for advice on the phone, that I began to grow a positive attitude despite objections. I took in every aspect of the incredible phone training we receive, and I built confidence and a positive mindset when phone calling. Starting out my Internship, I was worried about booking any appointments, but by the end, I had booked over 30 appointments. Today, I have accepted an offer to work in the Houston location upon graduation. I can truly say that the phone training and support this internship has to offer is a once and lifetime opportunity that will help you get the most out of your experience."

    "As an intern at Tom James, the financial opportunity is endless. Knowing that I had complete control over how much I made this summer motivated me to work that much harder! As a result, I have 12 new clients, a FREE suit, and made over $1500 on top of my hourly pay within my 2 months here. Not only that, the company has an amazing supportive culture, my team is incredible and I truly love going to work each day."

    High Point University

    Accepted in the Charlotte, North Carolina office upon graduation

    "Tom James is a place of growth and opportunity. I had the pleasure of working closely with my Leader, Ryden Bell, who exemplified true leadership and mentorship. I got to oversee him run his business, which was not only motivating, but inspiring. Ryden helped me build my business and develop close relationships with my own clients over the course of the internship. Over the last eight weeks, I grew both personally and professionally, and this stems from the positive and uplifting environment of the Charlotte office. Working closely with the other interns in the office has been one of my favorite parts of the internship. We have all leaned on each other, and pushed each other towards success. I enjoyed developing close relationships with the individuals who are also just beginning to build their businesses. Tom James is a career with endless possibilities, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the people, culture, and opportunity here!"
