If you have strong opinions about the Oxford comma and know how to turn a phrase, copywriting is one of those skills that’s never not in demand.
If you studied English, journalism or literature in school, copywriting might not be the first thing that pops into your head when it comes to searching for jobs. But it’s an indispensable skillset to just about every company, and when it comes to writing gigs, the market demand is one of the most consistent out there.
Not only do you get to nitpick grammar and spelling (I see you, people who have taken the New York Times copy editing quiz), but you also get to support brands in creative ways.
Even if your end goal isn’t to be a senior copywriter, having this skill on your resume is a pretty major asset. And I mean, come on, who wouldn’t want to write fun copy about pop-up cards or scented candles?
Fashion Copywriter, The RealReal
If you’re a young professional looking to make a switch, The RealReal is looking for a motivated young fashion copywriter with one year of fashion experience, including retail. The country’s largest online luxury fashion marketplace needs someone to write product descriptions and more.
Also, you literally get to get your hands on newly consigned merchandise. This NJ-based position offers competitive benefits, paid time off, transport assistance, and catered lunch. Pretty great, huh?
Copywriter, The Factory, Facebook
This is another great position if you’re just starting out in your career, as it only requires a relevant internship. You’ll get to make technology more accessible by writing for film, mobile, and web at Facebook’s Menlo Park campus. If you are passionate about making the technical field more human and authentic, this position is for you.
Marketing Copywriter, Lovepop
This Boston-based brand creates the coolest greeting cards ever. And they’re looking for a marketing copywriter to join their team.

Also, they brag on their website about office Nerf guns and spontaneous dance-offs.
BHLDN Copywriter, Urban Outfitters
Here’s another position that’s good for someone just breaking into the field of copywriting. This job, writing for wedding retail company BHLDN (pronounced “beholden”), which falls under the same parent company as Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie, requires only two to three years of writing for retail or at an agency. And your low-key obsession with bridal Pinterest boards is a plus: They’re looking for someone with a passion for fashion and the wedding industry.
In this position, you’ll do way more than just write product descriptions; you’ll pitch and write blog posts, meet with design and merchandising teams, and even get to name products.
Copywriter, Bed Bath & Beyond
Calling all home goods lovers and Abbi Abrams of the world! Bed Bath & Beyond (and its subsidiaries like Cost Plus World Market) want an inspired copywriter to join their team.

You’ll get a lot more than a salary out of working for this brand. Think medical, dental, and life insurance, a dog-friendly work environment at the corporate campus, and major discounts at Bed Bath & Beyond, buybuy BABY, Christmas Tree Shops, and more. Major score.
Senior Copywriter, HelloFresh
HelloFresh, the world’s leading meal kit provider, needs a senior copywriter.

Copywriter, Pampered Chef
Another can’t-miss opportunity for grammatically correct culinary whizzes. This copywriting role at the Pampered Chef will work with the marketing team to write website, blog, and email content. And one of their major values is ownership: You’ll own your content from start to finish. That’s a pretty cool thing to put in a cover letter.
If you’re chosen for this role, you’ll get product and partner discounts, financial planning, a fitness center, and even an in-office FUN Committee that plans monthly events.
Print Copywriter, Home and Men’s: Bloomingdale’s
This is the one job posting that explicitly mentioned an obsession with semi-colons. But hey, they’re fun, right?
Bloomingdale’s is looking for someone who loves words as much as they love design and fashion to help support home and menswear. This NY-based job will require a flexible schedule, and four to eight years of experience, and it’ll deliver some serious benefits. They give mental healthcare along with traditional health insurance, volunteer time off, company social events, tuition assistance, and more.
See? Your friends might think your inclination to point out spelling errors on restaurant menus is obnoxious, but that kind of attention can actually get you pretty far.
