What does your typical day look like?

The best part about working at Hawke is that I have complete control over how my day is scheduled. I don’t have a “typical day” because every day is so different. Some days I’m sitting (or standing!) at a desk doing phone interviews, and some days I’m working on a side project for the recruiting team while lounging in a bean bag chair.

Lizzie

Recruiter

What are some things you learned at the company?

The company as a whole fosters a culture of learning and growth. I came to Hawke with the notion that I was a decent digital marketer, but I have found that there is never too much you can learn. With the ever changing world of marketing and technology, you have to stay invested in education and should always stay hungry for knowledge.

Bryce

Director of Digital Strategy

What is your vision for the company?

As Head of People Ops my vision is focused internally. I envision Hawke to be an agency where employees feel equally empowered and supported. An agency where a sense of eternal wonder coupled with execution is valued, where diligence is enjoyed and rewarded and where all HR practices are built on these principles.

Lindsay

Head of People Operations

What’s the vibe like in the office?

The ethos of camaraderie outweighs any other possible description of how Hawke employees work with each other. I’ve never been in the office when there hasn’t been a positive buzz going around.
