“In recent months, we have received fewer and fewer suitable profiles from our recruiting process, which is why we simply haven’t been able to fill positions,” explains Lars Röttiger, Head of Development & QA at LYNQTECH.
It quickly became clear to the technology company: successful recruiting needed new, active methods – it needed active sourcing.
The words used during the initial contact are crucial for success in an interview: “Impersonal or sometimes incorrect addresses, generic messages or suggesting unsuitable jobs are just some of the reasons why talents can quickly be put off by recruiting enquiries,” explains Röttiger.
For this reason, LYNQTECH was looking for ways to take its active sourcing success into its own hands. And for a tool that gives the company the best possible support.
This is where the onlyfy TalentManager by XING comes into play. This gives LYNQTECH the optimal solution to search regionally for suitable talents – and to find them.
“Even the first search was very successful for us,” explains the department head. “I have been able to contact around 25 candidates, which has already resulted in three permanent positions. The investment has already paid off for us.” And LYNQTECH even sees the contact with those talents not hired at this point as a success: these people can be conveniently noted in talent pools for subsequent positions to have the right candidates at hand for future vacancies.
He particularly emphasises the intuitive use of TalentManager. Valuable information such as willingness to change or salary expectations enables LYNQTECH to efficiently search for suitable candidates.

TalentManager makes it possible to quickly and simply search and approach suitable talents – without a great deal of prior knowledge, tutorials and experience. Three permanent positions have resulted from fewer than 25 contacts – and that within just a few weeks.

LYNQTECH intends to resolutely continue on this successful course in the coming weeks and months. The focus remains on an individual, personal approach. “We still have more vacancies to fill and are convinced that TalentManager will support us in the best possible way,” emphasises the LYNQTECH employee.
Not least because the tool offers much more promising potential. “We would like to work more in the future with search requests that automatically inform us about suitable candidates,” says Röttiger. “And, of course, contact all the interesting talent we’ve already been able to find.”
