End of the Year 2015

January 4th, 2016 by Lynx, Inc.

Another year has come and passed! 2015 was filled with exciting changes for Lynx, including a reorganization and transformation of our company, and a big move from Lexington to our new headquarters on the funky and eclectic Moody Street in Waltham.

As we look ahead to 2016, we are eager to continue serving our clients and customers to match quality technical talent with challenging and rewarding job opportunities.

Our clients have great things to say about us – see what they have to say in their own words…


“I’ve said it before and will say it again, you’ve always made me feel like a friend and not just another resume, I’ve enjoyed every minute I’ve worked with you and know for a fact we will continue to be in touch over the years!”

“I have known Sophia for years, and it was a great pleasure to work with her recently when I was looking for a new position. Sophia took the time to understand in detail the type of role that I was looking for. This included the technology and the type of company I wanted to work for. As a result, she matched me with exactly the positions I was interested in, and represented me very well to the hiring managers.
She was also very proactive about finding a number of high quality matches, and quickly arranging interviews and following up. Sophia is really a top-notch recruiter, and I would highly recommend working with her.”

“Thank you again for your help and support. I will be sure to reach out to you in the future, as you were invaluable in my search for jobs this past spring.”

“I think that you guys were pretty great. I appreciated that you went out and found multiple opportunities for me quickly, rather than the other recruiters I dealt with who brought me one opportunity and stopped searching, and the first recruiter I dealt with when I initially started searching took until the end of last week to even come to me with one opportunity.”

“I really appreciated you keeping in touch throughout the months looking for a job. I also really appreciated the quick response to emails and phone calls.”

“Sophia made all the difference when I was searching for a new position. Her commitment to my search goals led me to several exciting opportunities and I was delighted to accept an offer from one. It’s a level of attention I’ve not encountered anywhere else and I’ll certainly call on her first in the future.”

Does Your Online Presence Paint You Into a Corner?

May 29th, 2013 by Lynx, Inc.

Professionals should make sure that their online presence doesn’t reflect poorly on them, i.e. no more pictures of chugging from a Beer Helmet on Facebook, or tweets about their brain-dead idiot boss. This is Common Sense 101 and few people are unaware of these type of consequences. However, the way you present yourself to the world using social media can harbor a more subtle problem, one which can still torpedo your chances of getting that interview, or landing that job.

Hiring Manager: Show Your Candidate Some Love

May 2nd, 2013 by Lynx, Inc.

One of the major reasons people decide to leave a job is they don’t feel respected or valued. We all know this basic principle of human nature, yet why don’t more hiring managers use it to their advantage in hiring or attracting good candidates? All too often, companies don’t realize how their interview process is perceived by candidates, and this oversight could cause good people to reject an eventual offer. As a hiring manager, what can you do to give your company maximum advantage and lock up more of those close ones? Read the rest of this entry »

Does the Perfect Match Exist?

April 11th, 2013 by Lynx, Inc.

I sometimes get a kick out of reading some of the software job postings out there on the web. Positions advertised as the ultimate opportunity: the company has been voted as one of the Best Places in the Universe to Work, they have 62 kinds of micro-brew on tap, and you will get to work on incredibly cool bleeding-edge technology that will make smoke come out of your ears with the extreme technical challenge. Of course, that’s obviously the right place for you, given that you’re a “rock star”, “ninja”, “Jedi”, or some other amazing type of employee. You live, breathe, eat, dream code, and when Read the rest of this entry »

Email is great, BUT …not for relationship building

September 11th, 2012 by Lynx, Inc.

Our domain lynxinc.com is hosted by GoDadddy and yes we were one of the millions of people affected by the recent outage.

Not being able to email for a few hours due to Monday’s outage was a great reason to go back to “old school” recruiting and get back on the phones.

Email is great for many things, but building relationships is not one of them. Relationships, which lie at the heart of any successful recruiting practice, are built by Read the rest of this entry »

Joining a Software Startup: What you need to know – Part 2

July 25th, 2012 by Lynx, Inc.

To start off this blog series about factors to consider in the search for a job at a startup, I’m going to talk about examining and evaluating a company’s concept and technology.

Every company started with a central idea for a product or a service, and whether this idea is thoroughly researched and planned can greatly affect whether the company finds success or ruin. Read the rest of this entry »

Joining a Software Startup: What you need to know – Part 1

June 22nd, 2012 by Lynx, Inc.

Many people in the high tech industry dream of working at a startup, a small new company where they can have a huge impact on the direction and technology, and do exciting work in a fun environment. There’s nothing wrong with having this dream, but it’s not quite as simple as saying yes: there’s a lot more information that needs to go into your decision, and you need to be prepared to make your own evaluation of a company. All of those engineers who started at a Google or Read the rest of this entry »

Why We Interview Candidates Face to Face at Lynx

May 31st, 2012 by Lynx, Inc.

Ever since we started Lynx, we’ve made it a core operating principle that, whenever possible, we conduct our interviews with candidates face-to-face, in person. Many other recruiting firms don’t do this, and we sometimes will get pushback from potential candidates along the lines of, “Why do I need to come in and meet with you? Other agencies aren’t making me do this, and they’re getting me interviews.” It’s a fair question. Read the rest of this entry »

Is there such a thing as too much preparation for an interview?

May 22nd, 2012 by Lynx, Inc.

Doing a good job preparing for an interview can be the key difference between getting an offer and getting a rejection. These days, there’s no excuse for at least the minimal step of checking out the company’s website, but if that’s the only thing you do, you’re just scratching the surface.

I’d like to share with you an superb article written by a friend and professional recruiting colleague of mine, Marie Burns from Compete.com, on how to take your preparation to the next level. Read and learn from Marie’s excellent post “I Spy: How to Scope Out a Company Before the Interview,” and ace your next interview!
