I have worked with Diane through three different companies now. What makes her stand out from the seething crowd of other IT recruiters that are constantly poking business executives about their new “talent” is quality. She takes the time to understand exactly how you’re business works, the personalities involved, the technical specifications and political dynamics. As a result, she asks a lot of insightful questions that she then uses to produce candidates of a far superior quality. She won’t present a litany of candidates for you to sort through but instead, a small number of extremely qualified ones that you can gladly pick from.
I have known and worked with Wray for a number of years. In my capacity as a corporate recruiter, I primarily staffed difficult-to-fill positions; and Wray certainly made my job easier. He is always pleasant and has a good sense of humor; but, most importantly, he is professional and strives to provide the best candidates. He and his staff are technically knowledgeable and I would highly recommend him.

I have used her for several hiring needs over the years and I have truly been pleased with the results. I highly recommend her for all of your temporary and permanent IT staffing needs!!
Cindy M.Talent Manager
I have had the pleasure of working with Catherine and her IT recruiters at Digital Staffing to help me fill several permanent and temporary technical roles. Catherine and her team have proven to be an outstanding resource, highly responsive and focused on the staffing needs of our organization. Catherine approaches her work with a great deal of energy and enthusiasm, and she was able to deliver well-qualified candidates within a short time frame no matter how difficult the requirements. Catherine is a true partner in the recruiting process and she will search relentlessly to find the right person for the job. She is also willing to be flexible as needed and resolve issues as they arise. Catherine's level of professionalism and engaging personality make working with her enjoyable as well as productive. I would not hesitate to utilize her services when I have a need for outside staffing assistance and I highly recommend her to other organizations with similar needs.
Shirley P., SPHRRetired Director of Human Resource Services
Our company started with Digital Staffing many, many years ago. Not too long after, Wray was assigned to our account, so Wray and I have known each other for years.
Wray and his IT recruiters have been our go-to guys for nearly all of our vacant professional positions. That's because Wray and his team have delivered high-quality, pre-screened candidates that closely fit our organization's needs. For the past several years nearly all of our recruited positions have come from Digital Staffing.
Why? Because Wray listens, understands our business and business needs, and tells me straight if he can't find what we're looking for. I appreciate his honesty and integrity. He'd rather we be happy and continue to seek his help when we have staffing needs than make a placement with the wrong candidate. That is service!

Debbie has a wealth of knowledge in the IT consulting and IT recruiting industry. She has a personable attitude and is very prompt with responding to inquiries. Debbie is a wonderful resource and a great person to work with.
John C.Senior IT Executive
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Wray for a number of years on short-term contract assignments for my company. We most recently needed someone with a broad background to get us through a backlog and out of three IT staffing firms we reached out to, his was the only one that responded immediately as well as identified the right technical skills and more importantly the ‘temperament’ of the individual we needed. Over the years, he has always kept in touch, never being intrusive as he respects how busy running IT gets but always being available if needed. A true professional in every aspect of finding the best talent, we would highly recommend him and Digital Staffing should the need arise.
Michelle H.Human Resource Manager
I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Wray for our IT staffing needs. He makes recruiting easy by bringing me vetted, top talent. Wray works hard to understand our needs and our culture in order to match us with the most appropriate candidates. Wray has expertly built strong relationships with both clients and candidates. We look forward to continuing our partnership.
Bob W.Project Manager
I reached out to several IT recruiting firms searching for a consultant that had BPM and BPMN experience. Catherine was the only one who delivered candidates that met my requirements. I ended up hiring one of the candidates that she presented and everything is working out great. I highly recommend working with Catherine when you need to find an employee or consultant.

Norma M.Director, Recruitment and Development
I have worked with Catherine on a number of searches for our IT Department, and she has consistently presented great candidates and has filled a number of openings with us over the years.
