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.

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 »

Should You Accept That Counteroffer?

May 3rd, 2012 by Lynx, Inc.

The other day, one of my colleagues at Lynx got an email from a candidate who wanted his help. The Lynx recruiter had placed this candidate in a new job a few months ago, but the candidate had subsequently accepted a counteroffer and backed out before starting. The opportunity we had connected him with was an influential Product Management position within a promising startup, which he was very excited about. The candidate, who had been working for an established, publicly-traded company, was ultimately wooed back by his current manager with promises of great opportunities in the future, and he decided Read the rest of this entry »

The Importance of Software Internships

March 14th, 2012 by Lynx, Inc.

I’m a graduate of Northeastern University, which is known for their coop program.   I can tell you first hand that this experience was especially helpful for me because I was able to get an idea of what positions interested me and which did not when I was ready for full time employment.  If I didn’t take advantage of the internship programs, I would have never have had the insight of working in different industries and having different job responsibilities before graduating.  When I was ready to graduate, I knew what would keep me challenged and Read the rest of this entry »

Interview Preparation –“What makes you a more valuable candidate?”

February 6th, 2012 by Sophia Navickas

I am often asked to prepare people for interviews. There are many sources of the basics which are important but let’s get down to some specifics as they relate to software related recruiting.

Spend time thinking about the position you are interviewing for and what unique skills you bring to the table to address the needs of the client company. This is where you have a chance to talk about what goes beyond your resume. Believe it or not, strong technical applicants can look remarkably similar on paper. It’s the person you are and the value you bring that makes you stand out. Read the rest of this entry »
