Golin Chicago (our headquarter office) is looking for a Copywriter to join our team immediately. Your goal? Breaking the Internet. We’re looking for an earned media-driven creative who wants to make the industry turn their heads, by producing award-winning, media-headline grabbing fun/provocative work. To stay relevant, our clients must deliver the right message in the right place at the right time. Every minute counts when it comes to rising above the chatter and standing out among a sea of competing voices. Is that something you can do? Because if so, you’ll be lovin’ working for one of the most iconic logos in the world: McDonald’s.

On top of that, we have a not-so-secret weapon –The Golin Bridge, a holistic engagement network pioneered by Golin to give clients a front-row seat to the most important conversations, broadcast and news headlines tied to their industry.

With 13 command centers across the world, the Bridge pairs mainstream and digital media experts with creative specialists like copywriters, digital designers and video producers to uncover storytelling opportunities in real time, deliver critical business insights, engage influencers and customers and create the content that shapes news and conversations.

This is currently a temporary, remote position

Who We Are

We are a diverse, idea-first, earned media public relations agency, designed to build relevance and deliver maximum impact for our clients. This approach has helped us win both at Cannes Lions and back-to-back to back PRWEEK Global Agency of the year.

To be successful with our employees and our clients, we go all-in on inclusion as a core value. And how do we do that? By focusing on establishing a culture that is intentionally inclusive, profoundly diverse, and uncompromisingly equitable. But we don’t stop there. We challenge our employees to be Courageously Happy and have empowered them to do so by offering our LifeTime benefits program. LifeTime offers unlimited time off, enhanced family care, generous health, and wellness benefits. Plus, you’ll get a monthly LifeTime stipend for the gym or whatever hobby you may have. Told you, our culture is built around happy people who are the best at what we do.

What You’ll Do

Come up with it. Bring it to life.

Job #1 is to collaborate, bringing the team your freshest, most inspired, unexpected thinking that solves our client’s problems. Job #2 is to use words to bring your ideas to life. From persuasive writeups, to puns and jokes…whatever your idea takes to make it impossible for a client to pass on it.

  • Collaborate with your creative director, art director partner, strategist, media, digital and account teams to ensure your work is always relevant, strategically sound and headline-worthy.
  • Communicate your ideas to the clients with clarity, strategic insight, and passion.
  • Hunt for and share out with the rest of the team what’s breaking in culture BEFORE it breaks in culture.
  • Proactive thinking. You’re always bringing ideas because you know not every opportunity lives within the brief, or the brand you’re concepting for.

What We’re Looking For

  • 2+ years’ experience in advertising, social, or digital media. Knowledge of earned media is a plus.
  • 109% internet fluency. You know the ins and outs of social media, speak the language of the internet, have gone down YouTube rabbit holes for multiple hours in a row, have uploaded multiple Tik Tok videos and have explored without fear the inner depths of Reddit.
  • Copywriter: You’re a wizard when it comes to words and storytelling, to incite people to hit that share button.
  • Most importantly, you’re a genuinely nice person who brings energy every single day to work, to your team, and the agency.
