As we enter the New Year, students and recent graduates alike are preparing to take their bold next steps into the professional world with resumes and portfolios in hand. A task that can be as intimidating as it is exhilarating, landing your first job requires great preparation. With this in mind, HCK2 Partners opened its doors by hosting the inaugural HCK2 Discovery Day.

On Jan. 12, more than a dozen students and recent graduates gathered to learn about agency life and the opportunities found within the marketing communications field. The day started with a tour of HCK2 and an overview highlighting our unique HCK2 culture, workstyle and marketing services. Members of the HCK2 leadership team offered insight and advice on everything from interview tips, the “dos and don’ts” of workplace etiquette, resume and portfolio development and more.

Following the presentation, Discovery Day participants broke into small groups with HCK2 team members to learn more about “a day in the life” at HCK2. Breakout sessions allowed attendees to gain a deeper understanding of the field they find most interesting and have valuable one-on-one time with professionals in each department.

We hosted Discovery Day to connect with bright minds who will be the future of the marketing communications industry and to show them why we are passionate about our work. We look forward to opening our doors again this spring to more students and recent graduates wanting to learn about HCK2 and about careers in marketing communications.
