Serving clients and candidates since 1999
After working 20 years in the environmental industry, I made a career change and joined WinterWyman as an IT recruiter. I assist companies in the Boston metro area to find the best IT talent for permanent placement.
BS in Chemical Engineering from the University of Buffalo
What clients and candidates say about Joe:
"I was impressed by the quality of Joe Kotlinski’s selections of potential positions, his communication and follow up, and his advice and strategies for handling interviews. I can't think of anything to recommend changing, it seems like you guys, and Joe in particular, have the game figured out. I had been looking on my own for about 6 months, not really focused on a new position till the last weeks, but I wasn't able to find any good fits on any of the job websites, or even through personal friends who has positions at their companies. Once I got onboard with WinterWyman, I had 6 quality opportunities to pick from, had interviews in days, and accepted my new position about a week later. I'd recommend your services to anyone looking to hire or be hired in IT, it was a much more comfortable experience than the usual sending in somewhat anonymous resumes and CVs and hoping one sticks, and then not knowing as much about the company as I did with your opportunities. Thanks again for all your work - I couldn't be happier with the results." – Jared B.
"I've worked with many recruiters in many agencies. My experience with Joe (Kotlinski) was one of the most effective and professional I've ever had. He was extremely thorough in interviewing me to learn about my skill set, what I was and was not looking for in my next job, and matching me with only relevant opportunities. Should I find myself in the position of looking for work again, Joe will be the first person I contact." - Paul M.
"Joe Kotlinski is a phenomenal resource. He really takes the time to learn our needs, the nuances of our business and the particular positions he is helping us with. He sends us quality candidates each time and always presents the relevant information. He is very responsive to our needs and is very easy to reach when we have questions. Joe also is great at relationship management - he take the time to get to know us and our managers as individuals. I do not hesitate to recommend Joe to my colleagues and friends." - Tracy K.
"Working with Joe Kotlinski was by far the best experience I've had with a recruiter. He took the time to really understand what my skills and personality were, as well as what I was looking for in a position, both in compensation and work environment. He only sent leads that seemed to fit with what I was looking for, rather than just flooding me with open reqs. This was especially important tome as I was relocating from New York to the Boston area. I also felt very well prepared each time I went on an interview because of the prep time I had with Joe beforehand." - Gerald S.
"Prior to working with Joe [Kotlinski], I had several very negative experiences with job recruiters. Working with Joe has completely reversed my opinion. Joe is not pushy, and truly cares about placing his candidates in the correct positions. He provided useful advice and was also excellent at hearing my concerns and helping to address them. I had very high expectations and criteria throughout my job search, and Joe was able to locate a position that is practically custom-fit to my needs. I will not hesitate to recommend Joe to any colleague of mine who is searching for a job. Should I ever find myself requiring Joe's services, I will definitely reach out to him again. I think most recruiters are just salespeople for jobs. Joe really seems to understand that the work he does impacts the livelihood and lifestyle of whole families. Thanks for helping me reach some personal goals." - Justin H.
