About Me

Recruiting since: 2018

Technical Recruiter for Edgelink, a boutique staffing firm in Portland, Oregon where we pride ourselves on our ability to create strong and long lasting relationships.

My colleagues and I deliver a top-notch candidate experience, creating strong rapport within the I.T. community. Candidates often tell me they appreciate my partnership approach, responsive follow-ups, and continual consideration. At the end of the day I connect people, not resumes!

In my recruiting practice, I care about what your job search goals are and I want to help you land something you love! I take pride in finding long-lasting opportunities that people might not have been able to find on their own. When partnering with me, you will hear all about company culture, hiring managers' preferences and testimonials from people we have already impacted. I love my job and I want you to love yours too!

Why I love recruiting...

I love recruiting because I have the opportunity to impact people's lives every day. Other than getting married or purchasing a home, few things in life have a bigger impact on an individual and their family than landing or missing out on a great job. Because of that tremendous impact, I find it easy to maintain a high level of excitement and commitment to excellence every single day.

When I'm not working, I love to...

When I am not working, I love to be involved in equine sports, spend time on the golf course and often times, pick up a great book!

Even from the initial LinkedIn message, I felt there was something different about Kailyn's approach to understanding my needs. She asked intelligent questions and gathered the information needed to find an employer that matches my requirement. This made her stand out from other recruiters.

Thanks for the great conversation Kailyn! It is not often that recruiters take the time to get to understand what I'm looking for and what skills I offer. She came across as warm, caring, and concerned about my job search. Thank you!

Kailyn understood the language of the industry, making me feel understood when expressing my needs for my next career. She was also able to ingest my whole story and objective as a career seeker, which makes me feel confident that she's able to 1) properly present me to hiring managers, and also 2) match me with positions and companies on levels beyond just skill set.

your job skills and initiative are very good. You are always willing to help others solve problems even if it inconveniences you and you are very willing to work above and beyond the call of duty.

She has gone over and above to help with my understanding of the industry, and the work environment of portland. I had just moved to the city and she has helped in the frustrations of finding a job, and advocating for my behalf. She has completely gone the extra mile with welcoming me to a city and understanding the transition and problems that can arise. She has been truthful and forthcoming and has given incredible guidance, which has changed my view of recruiters.

Kailyn was great, she was very punctual which may seem trivial, but during a job search and interview process, when the interviewer is late (especially to a phone interview), it looks horrible on behalf of the represented company. Anytime I receive a call over 5 minutes late, I am most-likely not going to work with that person or company, because it sends a strong message, that I am already not valued to that said person or company. Kailyn called me 11:00 AM sharp, as stated. It means more than most people think. I only have so much time on this planet too.

Throughout my career, I've spoken and worked with 3-4 recruiters and without question, Kailyn has been the best! She is absolutely fantastic to work with! She took the time to listen carefully to my career objectives and went the extra mile help me find a great opportunity that matched my skillset and experience. I was amazed at how quickly she responded to any questions that I had. Kailyn made the entire experience with Edge Link a totally positive experience and she always made me feel like I was her most important client. I will immediately recommend her to any of my friends and work acquaintances who might be looking to make a job change.

Kailyn has consistently given helpful advice, and has shown me job postings which are relevant to my resume and skillset. She has also been transparent about which postings I am qualified for, and clear about feedback about my resume and interviews from clients.

Kailyn was extremely diligent and knowledgeable not only in presenting me with relevant opportunities, but also helping to navigate the interview process and negotiate the terms of my contract. She clearly has a great deal of expertise and experience–I definitely felt as though I was in good hands.

On our first phone contact, I tend to be a little long winded when describing my past experience. She was very patient and actually encouraged me telling me it was just the information she needed and also answered a few of the additional questions she had planned on asking me. We actually had a bit of fun while going through her interview process with me. My first impression is she is a delight to work with and that she was going to do whatever she could to continue the job search in case the job posted that we were discussing for some reason did not work out. I told her I had lost eight jobs due to company buyouts to company shutdowns. I told her during all those times I never found a job through a recruiter but instead through my network of previous coworkers and other friends in technology. She seemed motivated by this to be the first recruiter to find me a job. I had a great time speaking with her and learning more about EdgeLink and the client. At the end of our conversation she said my resume had just been sent to the client. I had LinkedIn open and I noticed the Director at the client had just viewed my profile. Wow! I look forward to working with Kailyn now and in the future.
