“Doug and his team met my expectations 100 percent. He moved very quickly on the interview process and all of the follow-ups. Any time I had a question, Doug had an answer. I was most pleased with the direct communications with Doug. He worked out all the details that made the transition a positive experience and always had my best interest in mind. I would definitely recommend Doug and his team at DRI as they are very professional and prompt.”


“After 20 years in the computer industry, I can confidently say, Ryan and Doug are the best recruiters that I have worked with. Regardless of the type of position, Ryan and team consistently provide higher quality talent, in a shorter timeframe, than any other recruiters. One of the things that sets Ryan and Doug apart is their collaborative approach to recruiting. They work with you to draw out the specific requirements for each position. Then, as you move through the interview and hiring process, they work with you to refine the search and make sure you get the right candidate. Once you are ready to hire, they work with you to craft the right offer and bring the hire home. I can’t say enough about the quality of candidates. Ryan and Doug do an excellent job filtering candidates and only present those that match the requirements. Working with Ryan and Doug means I never have to settle for talent that is just “good enough”. I would and have recommended them on several occasions.”

“Doug was able to find for me the best position I have ever garnered from a recruiting firm. Engineering positions are hard to come by within Knoxville, but Doug found one that really worked for me (and vice-versa 🙂 ) Thanks, Doug!”
