His path led him to Abbott Laboratories where he held several field sales positions. Tom said that what he loved most was “helping people and developing others”. His favorite role was as a Field Sales Trainer where he helped mentor, coach, and develop sales reps throughout the Northeast. “It was then that I realized I really had a passion for helping others develop their career”, said Caravela. It was only natural that I eventually would wind up in the recruitment business focused on helping others pursue their career goals.
