Wanted: Jr. Writer

Renegade (the company I work at) is looking to fill a jr. writer position. It’s a great company and a really cool group of people (including your’s truly). In addition, this position would work quite closely with me. If you’re recently graduated and looking for a first job, this could be perfect. Here’s the description:

We’re looking for someone who’s passionate about words. It doesn’t matter if people call you a ‘writer’ or you studied English in college, you just need to enjoy using language to express yourself.

As a Jr. Writer you’ll be collaborating with the creative team to develop Renegade ideas. You’ll be called on to assist in both the writing and ideation phases, and work with the team and client to develop copy that meets both their needs and yours. Projects will be online and off, so you should enjoy working in all media.

With that said, it’s very important to understand that you’ll be doing more than just writing. Your appetite for words should be equaled by your appetite for ideas. You should have a desire to understand human nature in addition to grammar.

You don’t need to know everything about marketing, in fact you shouldn’t. You should be curious and excited about an opportunity to grow and learn new skills in an environment that encourages that sort of stuff.

If this sounds like you, email Christopher Downing (cdowning@renegademarketing.com) your resume and a few writing samples (if you’re wondering what a few means, in this case it’s two or greater). Please include “Writer” in the subject line of your email.

If this sounds interesting you can just contact me directly. Thanks.
