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.”

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 »

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!

Software Interview (with apologies to Mad Libs)

April 12th, 2012 by Lynx, Inc.

My family loves to do Mad Libs. If you’ve never tried one of these, I encourage you to visit www.madlibs.com and check them out. They’re a lot of fun.

I hereby offer my own humble version, based on my years of experience arranging interviews for software engineers. If you use this, I can’t guarantee success on your next interview, but at least you’ll make a unique impression!

Short-Term Job: Leave it off My Resume?

April 4th, 2012 by Lynx, Inc.

Software engineers, by the very dynamic nature of the industry in which they work in, sometimes end up looking for a new job only a month or two after beginning their last one. Perhaps they made a mistake and only realized it after they started. Perhaps, after the fact, there was a change in the position, responsibilities, employer or the new company’s fortunes changed quickly and a layoff occurred. Whatever the reason, it’s not an ideal situation, and candidates often ask if they should even list such a position on their resume. Read the rest of this entry »
