Working at Stryve isn’t normal, and our hiring process isn’t either. Luckily, I’m in your corner. I’m here to help calm your fears–or at the very least, give you the deets on what to expect on interview day.
Get to Know Us
As much as we’re trying to determine if you’re a good fit for us, we want to make sure we’re a good fit for you. Before the interview, take in all the Stryve you can. Browse our work, check us out on social, and read our blog to get a clear picture of exactly what you’d be getting yourself into.
Know Your Stuff–and Yourself
Skills can be taught over time, but we’re looking for a superstar that thinks critically. We’ll quiz you on the basics of digital marketing and the impact it can have. We’re hoping you can touch on current tech and B2B marketing trends, and maybe even teach us a thing or two in the process.
At the same time, we want to know you. When I first interviewed for the marketing coordinator position, bossman Burgio explained to me that if I didn’t have a strong understanding of myself, it would be next to impossible to understand other people. That stuck with me. And it should stick with you. Authenticity is a deal-maker at Stryve, so bring your true self to the interview.
Be Ready to Talk About How You’ve Kicked Ass
We dig confidence, but we love results. We’ll want to hear how you’ve killed it in both your professional and personal life. Come armed with examples that show us you’re a hungry, results-driven marketer who’s willing to take some risks.
Show Us How You Think Differently
Insatiable curiosity is the common thread that ties our diverse team together. So it goes without saying that a newbie Stryver will share our passion for learning and constant improvement. We want to know how you find inspiration and what you do to stay ahead of the curve. If you’ve read something mind-bending or have listened to a podcast that has your wheels turning, be ready to share your thoughts.
Breathe, be yourself, and have some fun
If I had one tip to share, what would it be? Have some fun. I remember being so nervous for my interview, but a year and a half into my career at Stryve, it’s mind-blowing to think I was terrified by this crew. Sure, it was intimidating, but the team gave me every opportunity to have some fun and to be my quirky self. Stryvers are the coolest cats you’ll ever meet. They put their pants on one leg at a time, just like you. So laugh a little, be yourself, and shake off those pre-interview jitters. You’re going to kill it.
