An Insider's view of Hawke Media

What are some social events your company does?

Hawke has monthly Happy Hours at our West LA HQ showcasing new initiatives each month. Quarterly, we host Brand Alchemy in NY & LA, an event series focused on the cross-section of marketing and talent that accelerate growth. Annually, Hawkefest invites eCommerce executives to a day of collaboration and programming with industry thought leaders.


Experiential and Event Marketing Manager

What does your typical day look like?

I love having 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 on the couch- yay WFH!


Senior Talent Acquisition Partner

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.


Director of Digital Strategy

How do you make yourself accessible to the rest of the team?

When a team feels comfortable sharing their challenges, wins, and even parts of their personal lives with each other, you're able to build a team culture where accessibility is tied with honesty, transparency, and a shared sense of purpose. There's no need for “my door is always open” because that is obvious through my actions and our interactions.


EVP | Finance

What are some social events your company does?

Since the transition to WFH, Hawke Media has become very creative with hosting social events for us. On Wednesday's and Friday's we play games on Zoom like Trivia and Pictionary where we can earn Amazon gift cards! I look forward to these because it is a great chance to interact with other people in the company in a non meeting setting.
