This class is for anyone who wants to get a writing job in advertising/marketing. No previous copywriting experience required.
Do you want to break into advertising writing but have no idea where to start? Take my class for an inside peek at what skills you'll need, what a copywriting role entails, and how to land the job.
As someone who started as a sales assistant and parlayed that gig into copywriting (ahem, Peggy Olson from "Mad Men"), I'll tell you how I leveraged my skills at a job I didn't like in order to land a job that I loved. I'll also share what Creative Directors and Editorial Managers are looking for and how to convince them to take a chance on new talent—you.
Take this class and learn:
This will be a short lecture followed by a highly interactive conversation about which brands you like, why you like them, and how you as a prospective copywriter must begin to think about products, consumers, and brand experiences.
When you ultimately interview for the job, you'll be prepared, knowledgeable, and confident. And that's what will get you hired.
*Please note: There are no refunds or transfers for this limited-enrollment class.
