Job Description

US - CareerBuilder



Mission Overview

Uncle Sam wants you! To be more specific, over 4 million out-of-work Americans need your help. Yep, that’s four, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero, zero. No pressure.

CareerBuilder’s goal is simple but massive: we’re going to knock some zeroes off that number. We are leading The Great RehireTM to rebuild a strong, diverse workforce—and fast. CareerBuilder supports the 67% of Americans without a college degree, the ones who keep everything running and need help the most.

We’re looking for an Associate Creative Director with a Copywriter background. You must have a talent for words, a commitment to making an inclusive employment system and a passion for using your skills to make a difference in the lives of others—embodying the CareerBuilder mission of Empowering Employment. If you want to help shape a movement, we want to hear from you.
