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.
