Edelman Digital was established as the world’s first global social agency. We bring together the best talent to help clients from every industry and sector to navigate complex business and brand challenges brought on by an increasingly digital world. We excel at helping our clients recalibrate their brands, reframe their positions and – most importantly – connect and engage with people. Why work with us? You’ll work with an industry-leading team, defining the rules of social marketing for the global business environment.
Who Are You?
Your love of words is borderline creepy. You stop dinner parties with the etymology of “sauté” but save the night with a six-syllable- synonym for “baste.” You believe in the Rule of Three. You’re a student of the craft. You sleep with Shakespeare, sneak off with Wallace, and pray at the altar of Strunk and White. You’re a copywriter with every fiber of your being, and we want your pens and pencils writing for us.
What We Expect
We want passion. We want excitement. We want you to wake up, get dressed, and come to the office ready to roll. It’s brainstorm day so we need your energy and insanity. But also your ideas. Especially your ideas. You’ll bounce them off your co-workers, laughing with planners, designers, art directors, creative directors, strategists, and maybe even the guy with the fedora. It depends on whether he’s got the time. Beyond the big meetings, you’ll be a part of small meetings and medium-sized ones, too. There’s also time for you to sit at your desk, fire up the brain, and start spinning copy for social, web builds, pitch decks, scripts and more. Or less if the day is slow. Either way, we encourage you to get out and take a culinary tour of the neighborhood. Lunch, after all, is one of the three most important meals of the day.
What You Should Expect to Do
Write. Write like the wind. Write like your paycheck depends on it
Collaborate. You may write in a silo, but you work in a team
Stay on voice, on brand, and on target
Adhere to deadlines and timelines and ziplines. Rule of Three, remember?
Hashtags. They’re not a strategy, but they’re an unavoidable part of our world
