Areas of Focus

The beginning of Rainmaker Consulting was in 2007 when the founder was asked by a Houston based oil and gas executive to help recruit their VP of Sales.  Utilizing the TopGrading recruiting methodology, a successful placement was made, and nine years later, this VP is still with the client and has led in the transformation of the company’s sales strategy to result in record growth. Knowing the proper method to locate and to evaluate talent to insure you are making the best hire, is critical to a company’s success. By following recruiting best practices and gleaning lessons from more than seventeen years of experience, we have become experts in locating and evaluating talent.

Rainmaker Consulting recruiters have an average of 15 years of experience in recruiting in the different areas listed below.
