Welcome back to “Interview with a Recruiter!”🥳

It’s not every day we get a new addition to the STRIVE team, which is why we are SO excited to introduce Frederick Punter, our new Account Manager for the Accounting & Finance division. Frederick comes with over 10 years of Accounting & Finance recruitment experience in both Canada and the UK. We are so happy to have Frederick join the team and we cannot wait to work together.

Let’s take a quick minute to get to know our newest teammate!

Q. How did you get into recruitment?

A. I wanted a job that allowed the opportunity to work all around the world, because no matter where you are, someone needs help with hiring. Although I must say I don’t see myself leaving BC anytime soon…these mountains are incredible!

Q. What made you choose to work at STRIVE Recruitment?

A. I was interested in working with an ambitious and growing company here in beautiful Vancouver! I was excited to work with a charismatic leader like Michael Dha and a fun, energetic team.

Q. How do you spend your time outside of the office?

A. My fiancé and I have really gotten into the Westcoast lifestyle. We have been hiking and paddle boarding almost every weekend! When I’m not outside you can usually catch me reading the paper or watching rugby.

Interview With A Recruiter- Meet Erick Quan

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.

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.

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!

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.
