Paid Writing Internship

We are looking for smart, resourceful 2nd year+ writing majors who have interest in learning, growing and contributing to great work with an awesomely strategic and creative team.

We need to say this before we get too much further: Having talked to many writing majors—especially in technical and journalism writing—we have learned that “marketing” may be considered a bad word and/or a lower form of writing.

To that point, it may help to know that this firm values good writing above everything else. It is the cornerstone of our business. Good solid strategic messaging lays the foundation for all other work that follows. That is why we have been invited to develop the strategic brand positioning of both the Purdue College of Agriculture and Purdue Krannert School of Business along many other businesses.

Not to scare you off—there are probably 50 smaller articles, blogs, social media content plans etc. for every high level “strategic messaging” or “brand positioning” project. Plus, we have a great head writer for the high-level strategy stuff.

So probably pretty obvious: we are a marketing firm—which means a fair amount of marketing copy. If you have never done that we can try out a small project or two to see if you like it and want to learn more. That may be the key: do you have an interest in learning?

Maybe not so obvious: successful marketing firms today are content providers. For ourselves and our clients. Research, interviews and fact-based blogs, articles, white papers, etc. have grown over the past 5 years into a mainstay of our business. So people with journalist writing skills may feel right at home—it’s just how much you love the marketing components that may be the difference-maker.

Responsibilities:

  • Candidate will start very slowly with small (probably dull-ish) projects and be rewarded with bigger, more challenging and high-profile (fun?) projects if 1) they want it and 2) they are doing good work.
  • Projects the candidate will work on may be stand-alone copy pieces or writing that complements visual concepts created by an art director, across many platforms including:
    • Websites
    • Email marketing
    • Blogs, articles & other online content
    • Of course, there is a huge “branded” social media writing, posting and management component
    • Press releases
    • Sales materials

Requirements:

  • Ability to think creatively and translate ideas into writing
  • Must be willing and able to collaborate with team members—idc writers do not work in a vacuum
  • Receive feedback and use it to grow and improve as a copywriter
  • Growing writing and editing skills
