    The Best Interview Questions to Ask A Candidate - Strive Consulting

    Recruiters in the staffing and consulting industries are often viewed as transactional, process driven and impersonal. Many prospective candidates would prefer speaking with hiring managers directly rather than with recruiters because of the limited associations they feel we have towards them and the end client.

---

strategic advisory

Knowledge & Expertise.

Our teams consist of business and technology experts from a variety of well-known companies and consulting firms. We apply this knowledge and experience to evolve strategies with roadmaps, assessments, and insights to optimize the business.

Holistic, Practical Approach.
We understand what it takes to implement complex programs and projects. As a result, our teams are focused on creating actionable plans to quickly deliver results by helping connect technology strategically to the business.

Low Risk, High Value Engagements.
We engage small, nimble teams of experts to create strategies focused on quickly delivering valuable results.

project delivery

Customized Approach.

We recognize that every project and client situation is unique and adjust our approach accordingly. While we bring perspective and best practices to each engagement, we maintain flexibility to be able to deliver in ways that best suits our clients’ environment.

Optimized Resource Mix.
Each engagement requires a wide variety of experience and expertise. Rather than building teams that are limited to resources that happen to be on the “bench” or providing on-the-job training for those resources, Strive’s model provides the unique ability to assemble highly talented teams from our Consulting Practices and consulting network to ensure we have the specialized expertise required to successfully deliver.

National Expertise. Local Delivery.
While we are a national firm with a broad base of experience across our 400+ consultants and vast network of independent experts, we deliver the majority of our engagements locally. We believe this results in more value for our clients as travel costs are eliminated and quality increases with the close alignment of our resources and the client team.

staffing services

Top Talent On Demand.

Over the last ten years, we have built relationships with the top consultants in the marketplace. This strong network of experts allows us to engage the best possible resource for each engagement.

Expert-Based Screening Process.
Unlike staffing firms, Strive is able to involve experts from our Consulting Practices to thoroughly interview, screen, and vet candidates to ensure their capabilities match our clients’ need.

Oversight from Consulting Practice.
Our resources receive management, guidance, and support from our Consulting Practices to assist with challenges and to achieve success.

    I have been working at Strive Consulting full-time

    Pros

    Starting at the top, Strive is led by partners and executives who care truly about doing right by all people in the company. This dedication manifests itself in continuous opportunity for personal, professional, and financial growth for each employee - and I believe is the main reason we continue to attract and retain such amazing talent.

    Cons

    Being a rapidly growing organization, leadership can be pulled in a lot of directions and can be understandably stretched thin at times. Support and guidance is always available, but it employees sometimes have to be proactive to get it.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to invest in your people and develop future leaders.

    Technical Recruiter Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Columbus, OH

    Average Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Strive Consulting (Columbus, OH) in March 2018.

    Interview

    Interview process was done over Skype with a Recruiting Manager in Chicago. Wasn't bad, felt there was a good rapport, but terrible look on Strive in failing to get back with me after it. Was told that the next step was to meet with my potential manager in my city on site, but the Chicago recruiting manager never followed up with m, even after I reached back out a second time after a thank you email.

    Very shocked at the lack of courtesy the young man could not give me in saying they would not continue in the hiring process with me. Basically found out via LinkedIn when this person removed our connection, and the position was reposted.

    Again, a little courtesy or acknowledgement of my message would have went a long way.
