Copywriter Intern:

Can you do better than this headline?

Are your headlines snappy? Is your portfolio filled with insightful ideas? Does the idea of wrangling a brand’s main message into 125 characters sound like a great day at the office? If you answered “Yasss!” to any of those, then we want to see more.

Get ready to build your portfolio

As copywriting intern, you’ll write and edit copy that connects with over-achieving business types, drywall installers, architects, people who hate rush hour, cardiologists, time-starved moms trying to feed their families, and many, many more. But your toughest audience will be your creative directors. Their job is to give you a taste of life inside a creative department with real clients, real deadlines, and real pressure. Your main job is to impress them. Their main job is to surround you with other creative minds to build your book and kickstart your career.
