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 a Copywriter who has a talent for words, a commitment to making an inclusive employment system and a passion for using their skills to make a difference in the lives of others—embodying the CareerBuilder mission of Empowering Employment. Trust us, it feels way better than writing for some cool beer or potato chip account.


Job Duties and Responsibilities 

This part should be no surprise: The Copywriter will bring CareerBuilder's brand voice to life through marketing materials. Their work will support both B2B & B2C audiences.

Check these boxes:

  • Be an artist: You’ll have a blank page but must know what to do with it; we are crafting our voice, this is not a step-into-a-comfy-spot kind of role.
  • Be an expert: Provide brand expertise to guide projects and develop creative solutions that meet measurable goals, while making killer creative.
  • Be able to write it all: Create compelling copy for TV, emails, social posts, digital, radio ads and other mediums. There is no pecking order. You get to be on the ‘portfolio’ pieces right away.
  • Be able to articulate: Translate ideas, creative rationale and tech terms to those outside of Marketing; effectively communicate strategies and creative standards to those outside of Marketing; do it all in the form of a story (people like to listen to those).
  • Be self-directed: Manage multiple assignments simultaneously, within established timeframes (which change!) and budgets.
  • Be a risk-taker: No ‘assembly-line workers’ wanted; we want go-getter, pro-active thinkers on all portions of the brand (product, marketing, sales, brand strategy, media buying).
  • Be a brand nerd: Keep teammates and the organization/work on-trend and ahead of trend.
  • Be able to connect the dots: Drive copy and strategy for groups inside and outside of Marketing; we have to tell a story.

Job Requirements:

  • 2-5 years of copywriting experience required; ad agency experience preferred
  • Excellent people and management skills to interact with staff, colleagues and cross-functional teams, and third parties 
  • Excellent verbal and written communication skills required
  • Able to adapt to changing priorities with ease and composure, while continuing to meet established deadlines
  • Ability to coordinate and effectively prioritize multiple tasks
  • Ability to write scripts is a must

Tech skills

  • Proficient in MS office (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Outlook)
  • Knowledge of AP Style and ability to follow internal style and brand voice guidelines is a must
  • Knowledge of and experience with SEO and Google Analytics a plus

CareerBuilder employees are currently remote. We do have offices based in Chicago and Atlanta. When it is safe to return to the office, you will have the ability to continue to be remote or utilize the Chicago or Atlanta offices as determined by your manager.
