Here's what they are saying...
I've worked with several recruiters over the past few years and Deatra was by far the most helpful, ambitious, and knowledgeable of the industry. She actually was able to help me land TWO very competitive offers within the first few weeks of working with me, both in my desired field. I accepted the second offer and couldn't be happier. I can't say enough good things about Deatra and her team's professionalism and willingness to help.

We turned to Deatra and Rainmaker Resources when we needed a Top Flight controller for our growing enterprise. Deatra asked a few very direct questions that helped focus in on precisely what our description of and "A player" who would fit in and perform well was. Within a matter of one or two days we had a slate of excellent people to choose from. She and her team stayed close to the process (without be intrusive) and provided the assistance to close the deal. In less than a month we were able to locate, screen and hire an outstanding addition to our team. Pleasant, Professional and Productive, what more would you want in a partner!?

First, Deatra is extremely professional and personable. She is a taskmaster who will stay in contact with you throughout the process. Second, I really appreciate that she took the time to understand what I was looking for. I passed on a couple of opportunities that she had worked on. She continued to search and eventually she found the ideal position. Finally, I really liked the insight and tips that she gave me before the interviews that really made the difference. I knew that I could call or email with any questions about the positions and I would get details and information beyond the job description. Thanks Deatra!

Deatra was extremely professional throughout my job search. She first asked questions about my professional background, and then asked where I wanted to go in my career.
