Mike Aujla


Mike has over 18 years of experience in the legal industry, first as a lawyer and then as a recruiter. He is proud to be from a small and ethnically diverse corner of East Vancouver. A first generation Canadian, he learned early the value of hard work and never to let an opportunity pass unexplored. After earning his law degree in British Columbia, he traded his beloved Canucks cap for a cowboy hat and joined a leading Calgary law firm.  Fast forward a few years and his adventurous streak surfaced again, taking him across the pond to a Silver Circle firm in London, England.  But despite the cool accents and warm pubs, Mike felt the tug of his Canadian roots. He returned to Vancouver, joining the local office of a Seven Sister firm. Transitioning to legal recruitment shortly thereafter felt like the natural convergence of his varied life experiences. Now Mike is a seasoned recruiter who is relied on by law firms and companies to bring together talent and opportunity. His diverse legal background combined with his genuine and affable nature is appreciated by those looking for a career change, or those looking to build their legal team or find a merger partner. When Mike is not recruiting, he can be found at the hockey rink watching his kids play and making an effort not to interfere.

My experience with Hunter West is the best experience I’ve ever had working with a recruiter. Mike is an amazing guy, and I’m grateful for his help and support. Mike tells the frank truth, and offered tough advice when it was needed. I have worked with other agencies before, and Hunter West is far and away my best experience to date. Thanks again, Mr. Aujla, you’re the best in the business.


Hunter West is 5/5. They offer access to job opportunities that are either not accessible to the public or are difficult to find, as well as insight on salary expectations. They provided a more realistic assessment of available opportunities, my chances of being the successful applicant, salary expectations, etc., than other agencies I have used. Overall, I was very satisfied with the service provided by Mike Aujla.


I engaged Hunter West after trying to find work on my own with no avail, and my experience was 10/10. Mike Aujla was super communicative and kept me up to speed on the process with the firm. This was particularly appreciated given that my stress level about finding a job was high. It was helpful to meet first to discuss the market and any opportunities realistically, and it was also extremely helpful to have Hunter West bridge the gap between myself and the employer. Other agencies told me about leads but never followed up with me; I had the opposite experience with Hunter West. Mike responded to me at times well beyond business hours, which was extremely appreciated and showed that he went above and beyond for his clients. A big thank you to Mike Aujla for a job well done!
