The word “poke” brings quite a few things to mind for me. There’s that useless Facebook feature that nobody uses any more (my girlfriend won’t even poke me back these days). There’s the Hawaiian dish of cubed raw fish. There’s the obvious annoying gesture/action of poking someone, and it’s even a term for an awkward looking base hit in baseball. Those are the things that came to mind for me. What didn’t come to mind, but should have is POKE, a New York City based creative company that happens to be taking a creative approach to how they recruit new employees. I wish that I could tell you more about what they do, but they’re having some website issues, which I’ll discuss in a second.

Get POKEd

Ok, so my introduction to POKE was pretty good – I found out about them from an AdFreak.com story about their internship recruitment. It led to my featuring POKE’s Internships on One Day, One Internship a few days ago. When I was doing my research on them, I headed for their home page at POKENewYork.com to get their full story. Unfortunately, their home page wasn’t working so well on Monday, but today it looks like it’s back in action. It’s in a blog format, which means that it’s loaded with information. Unfortunately, their Contact & FAQ link is still broken. To get a full sense of what POKE’s creative endeavors entail, you should take a look at their Portfolio, their Working with POKE page, and POKE Live. Since it seems as though a lot of POKE’s work is web design, you’d like to see their own website working properly.

Enough with the negative though. POKE still looks like an awesome place to work. The following quote sums up their approach to recruitment: “If you’d like to work with POKE don’t assume that you’re going to see a want ad on the website. Send us a mail. A link to your blog, portfolio or something you’ve done is quite often much more useful than a resume.” That’s really all that you need to know (ok, if you want to know more, check out Working with POKE). If you have an interest in design, marketing, advertising, web development, social media, or anything else creative, then you should let POKE know via their Contact page. Don’t just wait around for them to post a job.
