We are proud to be active in the career service industry. We are members of the NRWA (National Resume Writers Association), PARW/CC (Professional Association of Resume Writers and Career Coaching), CTL (Career Thought Leaders), and TCE (The Career Experts).
In 2011, our founder and CEO, Thomas Powner, CPRW, CEIP, CCMC, CDCC, decided to create Career Thinker after dedicating decades to driving measurable growth for a variety of companies. He knew he could positively impact others to career success with his knowledge, inspiration, coaching and leadership skills.
Beginning in New York City and the immediate tri-state area, then expanding to Florida, now Career Thinker works nationally including Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, Dallas and Las Vegas.
In addition to career experience, Tom has expanded his credentials to include:
- Certified Professional Resume Writer (CPRW)
- Certified Career Management Coach (CCMC)

- Certified DISCstyles™ Communication Consultant (CDCC)
- LinkedIn Strategist

- Active participant in Forbes Coaching Council
With his goal in creating “Connectivity” for business opportunities, he stresses the value of LinkedIn as a key format in how people showcase their talent and how companies seeking that expertise can streamline their search criteria.
Now considered a thought leader in the career services industry, LinkedIn Profinder awarded Tom Powner the “Best of 2017” for best in class for “Resume Writing.” He is also the NCOPE (Nationally Certified Online Profile Expert), where he teaches career professionals how to unleash the power of LinkedIn for career success.
In addition to creating powerful career documents (resumes, bios, cover letters, etc.), it was important to him to provide not only the career services he and his team provide but also be a resource for the “hidden” knowledge people rarely or never consider when looking for a job. Thus, the reason this website is loaded with tips, techniques, and tidbits helpful in getting you closer to landing your job.
