Copywriter Paid Internship

September 24, 2020 Red Olive Location: 9800 S Monroe St Suite 803 Sandy UT 84070

We’re looking for a wordsmith who can write epic digital content. Can you write error-free drafts of optimized content that sings? Are your words the Pied Piper variety—that is, do they enchant, seduce, and ultimately convert? And how do you really feel about the Oxford comma?

At Red Olive, the content marketing intern is more than just a gopher for donuts and coffee. We offer real opportunities to craft dynamic copy for a huge variety of industries and clients within multiple channels—blogs, landing pages, billboard advertisements, and so much more. We hire most of our interns full-time after 90 days.

You won’t just get your feet wet, you’ll drown in hardcore real-world work that’ll give you a portfolio that a young David Ogilvy would be proud of. And you’ll do it alongside some of Salt Lake City’s top digital and design experts.

About You

To succeed, you’ll need to create consistently solid work and exhibit familiarity with crafting compelling content that’s optimized for search engines without using black-hat SEO techniques. We don’t want sugary fluff. We want real meaty content that holds its value in SERP’s. You’ll be a collaborator. A quick-turnaround artist. Your content strategy will be sharper than Bobby Fisher’s chess game. You’ll be a geek about split-tests and conversion stats. You’ve got skills and talent and you’re ready to level-up.
