Welcome to the third installation of “Interview with a Recruiter!”

This month we are excited to speak with , our beloved Sourcing Specialist at STRIVE Recruitment Inc. Erick joined the team in October 2019 and has done an incredible job sourcing TOP TALENT for our clients. Erick works closely among all three divisions here at STRIVE and we could not be happier with his unwavering work ethic and great personality. Let’s see what Erick has to say about his time at STRIVE thus far!

Q. What is your greatest memory with STRIVE?

A. My favourite memory would be our Christmas party, I loved the Indian family-style dinner prepared by Mama Dha and our epic game of tug-O-war in the office, it was great!

Q. How did you spend quarantine?

A. Great question. When I wasn’t working, I would usually explore my neighbourhood on foot and go on long walks with my dog. It may sound boring, but it was peaceful during the lockdown and my dog loved it.

Q. What advice would you give to job seekers right now?

A. Do your research! Learn a few key points about the company you are applying for and add that information into your cover letter.

Q. What are you watching on Netflix right now?

A. Call me crazy but I don’t have a Netflix account! When I want to relax, I play tennis.

Quarter 2 Celebratory Beach Day!

This past Wednesday, the team at STRIVE Recruitment Inc. was OUT OF THE OFFICE for a team beach day in Kitsilano to celebrate the end of an excellent Quarter 2! The beach day was filled with hot dogs, hamburgers, snacks, and A LOT of Spike Ball.

The past couple of months were filled with unforeseen challenges and hurdles, but we are proud to say that we were able to overcome these challenges as a team by getting creative, working harder and putting in the effort.

Thank you, team, for a great Quarter 2- we cannot wait to see everyone beat their goals in Quarter 3 and get closer to meeting our annual goal and going to Mexico! (when it’s safe to travel again)

Cheers to working with a great, supportive, hard-working team.

YOUR POTENTIAL. OUR INSIGHT.

Interview With A Recruiter- Meet Alanna Dunbar

Welcome to the second installment of “Interview with a Recruiter!”

This month we are thrilled to chat with Alanna Dunbar, Business Development Representative at STRIVE Recruitment Inc. Alanna joined the team in October 2019 and has loved her time at the company so far! She works with our sales and marketing initiatives to help deliver dynamic results and we are SO lucky to have her on our STRIVE team. Let’s see what she has to say about her experience with STRIVE so far.

Q. What is your greatest memory with STRIVE?

A. I really enjoyed the first Samosa sale we did as a team for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. It really encompassed everything I love: Philanthropy and of course samosas.

Q. How did you spend quarantine?

A. The thought of staying inside all day sounded like my dream at the start of quarantine, but I really got into trail running soon into quarantine. Lots of open space and seclusion in the forest, which was great!

Q. What advice would you give to job seekers right now?

A. Follow up, follow up, follow up! I recommend reaching out to the hiring manager to follow-up about the position and ask any questions you have about the role. (Thoughtful) consistency is key.

Q. What are you watching on Netflix right now?

A. Right now I am watching Broad City on Crave. Netflix is so yesterday.

That’s all for now, folks- Alanna has to get back to business! Catch you next month for the next installment of Interview With A  Recruiter!

Interview With A Recruiter- Meet Jenalin Sinclair

Welcome to the first “Interview with a Recruiter!”

This month we are excited to sit down and chat with Jenalin Sinclair of the Manufacturing & Operations division at STRIVE Recruitment Inc. Jenalin has been a Recruitment Specialist with STRIVE for a year and a half and we could not be happier to have her on the team.

What is your greatest memory with STRIVE?

It would have to be the trip to Cabo we took in 2019! The team hit our yearly goal for 2018 so we were gifted with a trip to Mexico! The best part was taking a sunset boat cruise with the team.

What has been your biggest professional win at STRIVE?

It would be hitting our quarterly goal as a division- we were down one person, but we worked our butts off and it really paid off.

What has been your biggest challenge?

We had restructured the Manufacturing & Operations division so it was a challenge at first defining the new team dynamic, but I could not be happier with the team I have now and our killer communication.

How have you been spending your quarantine?

I may as well be a MasterChef now- I bake and cook SO much. I have been playing around with Asian dishes- trying to tap into my Vietnamese roots. I made an amazing Pho and Lemongrass Chicken dish from scratch but wow it takes a lot of time!

What advice do you have for job seekers right now?

Like I say to all my candidates- you MUST tailor your resume and cover letter to the company you are applying for! Do not send a generic resume along- the potential employer wants to see how you align with their values and how you can bring value to the team.

What are you watching on Netflix right now?

“Dead to Me”- it’s amazing. I’m obsessed.
