VSA Partners Copywriter in Chicago, Illinois
VSA is looking for a Copywriter. Of course you should be talented and conceptual, but if you value independence, empowerment and entrepreneurship and are not afraid of accountability, this is the place for you.
About Us: We are a group of dedicated, collaborative and kind people that value smarts over egos. We work very hard to create human-centered, insight-inspired work that moves people, changes behavior, and answers real strategic problems. We started as a design firm over 30 years ago and operate today with a “design thinking" approach to everything we do. Formally, we’re a branding and marketing company that approaches business challenges holistically and aims to break down silos between branding, digital, marketing and advertising. Informally, we’re a family that comes together at the table every day to make something great.
You need to be able to write. Well. And in a variety of “voices” for a variety of mediums as this copywriter will be working on a rather diverse range of clients and projects.
Integrate a “big idea” across multiple mediums including TV, print, digital, regardless of budget.
Need to be a real self-starter and go-getter. Yes, you’ll get direction and guidance, but rather than a lot of hand holding, we’re more apt to give you a project and let you run (and run fast) with it to make it great. More responsibility = more kudos, credit and fame. We won’t let any lack of experience (perceived or actual) hold you back, and we won’t let you crash and burn either.
You will be selling your work. Not just to clients, but to your peers and colleagues before it even gets into the room. And not just because it’s clever, “cool” or a witty play on words, because it’s grounded in an idea that was born of an agreed upon strategy and insights.
College degree and/or portfolio school degree
1-3 years of experience in the agency space
Have to be able to play nice with others. No huge egos. We win as a team, but don’t worry, you’ll still get plenty of props.
Conceptual creative thinker; strategically applying ideas across all channels.
Able to solve problems in an impressive way.
Take constructive criticism with ease and grace, and be able to learn from your mistakes.
Have a naturally curious mind and a passion for culture and idea generation.
