Perks and Programs

We asked EvolveMKD to share a few programs they feel really capture what's unique about their workplace. Here is what they had to say.

  • Family Night: EvolveMKD has a family night each summer for the staff. “When we were talking about having a ‘Family Night’ party, it struck me how much time you spend at work, but how little your family really knows about your job, your day-to-day, and the people you spend the majority of your time with,” said Megan Driscoll, founder of the New York based public relations firm, EvolveMKD. “I also wanted to thank these women who took a leap of faith and came to work for my start-up agency.” “Evolve’s ‘Family Night’ was first called ‘Parents Night’ but we made it more inclusive so employees could bring all of the important people in their lives to see where they work,” said Driscoll. Past years have had up to 80 attendees.
  • Unlimited Vacation: EvolveMKD has an open, unlimited vacation policy for all full-time staff.
  • Flexible Work Schedule: EvolveMKD offers a flexible works schedule for all full-time staff so that employees can take care of family obligations.
  • Paid Time Off for Employees to Volunteer: EvolveMKD has one service day per quarter, as both a team building activity and to give back. One of our core values is helping the world around us and to that end, in addition to our time, we give away 10% of company profits annually to charities that are close to our heart.
  • Regular Beauty Treatments: EvolveMKD provides employees with an on-site beauty salon room for beauty treatments such as monthly brow waxing, manicures, etc.

How to Get Hired

We asked EvolveMKD for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

In terms of finding talent, we rely heavily on referrals and word of mouth – the best employees have come from people that we respect and admire. We also look for candidates that not only have the skillset, but also fit our culture, which is really important.  In terms of important characteristics, I want employees that are proactive, positive, team oriented and are looking for a career, not a job. 

What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

I always am impressed when someone has a demonstrated commitment to philanthropy – either they’ve volunteered somewhere consistently or they’ve done some pro-bono work.  Philanthropy is one of our core values at EvolveMKD and if someone demonstrates that already, I know they will be a culture fit.  On the negative side, anyone’s resume that has grammatical or formatting issues or spells the name of the company wrong, does not get a second look. 

Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

EvolveMKD is looking for a dynamic, energetic and proactive Vice President to join our digital team. This position provides the opportunity to work in a fast-paced, creative environment with a collaborative team on a wide variety of businesses in the aesthetics, healthcare, beauty and lifestyle categories. A successful candidate will have a creative and analytic mind for all things digital, a proven track record of executing and generating results for social media, influencer and paid campaigns, and has had success managing a team. The candidate should be a self-starter with excellent research, problem-solving, organizational and client and team management skills. The candidate will assist the Senior Vice President in client and new business strategy and team management. Passion, enthusiasm, collaboration, and respect for others is required.

What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

Follow us on social media @EvolveMKD. A recent interviewer noted that she saw a ton of Social posts from influencers and media about sweet treats they had received from EvolveMKD touting sayings from impactful women – and she knew immediately Evolve was where she wanted to work, that our values matched her passion.
