Over the past 20+ years he’s spent time at just about every great shop in Minneapolis, including Barrie D’Rozario Murphy, Carmichael Lynch, Fallon, Hill Holiday, and Leonard Monahan Lubars.

Jill Pool, Director of Creative Resources at INNOCEAN, is on the hunt for a copywriter. From Jill, “We’re looking for a social copywriter. Someone who loves and embraces everything social media. You’ve got solid concepting chops, but you’re also a tactical ninja. You punctuate with precision. You drop #hashtags in all the right places. And you crank out metadata like a machine. Being constrained to 90 characters? No big deal. (And that’s INCLUDING a bit.ly.) You get excited every time your Twitter app gets an update. Even more so whenever a new social app comes out. When your Klout score drops, your heart sinks, too. But then you come up with a new posting strategy FTW. Also, maybe you made bank selling your Flappy Bird-loaded iPhone on eBay recently. In which case you probably don’t need this gig. But we should talk anyway.” To apply, email your stuff to Jill at the address below.

Aaron is a copywriter at Translation in Chicago. Been about a year since his last post on MC (03.25.13), back when his book was part produced, mostly student work. Since then, he’s added a bunch of new stuff including a crazzeee social campaign for Big Mac. BTDubs: when MC looks in the mirror, he is always hungry for Big Mac.

Brett is a freelance/permalance senior copywriter in NYC. He shares a site with AD/creative partner/spouse Krista Brown, who submitted it to MC. All kinds of cool stuff in their portfolio, including work for Acura, Carl’s Jr., Harley, and an Armored Tailgating Vehicle for Union Bank. But, work aside, can we just pause here for a moment and applaud a married freelance/permalance creative team who still likes each other enough to do something nice, like submit their site to a little industry blog that specializes in what the other person does? Love that.

Bernie is a copywriter/former punk rocker from Brisbane, Australia, who is about to land in the States with a Green Card/Diversity Visa and will be, well, ready to rock. It’s not often MC features direct mail in a post, but the above piece for Suncorp Insurance is pretty genius. Lots of other good stuff all over Bernie’s site, too. Looking forward to seeing where he lands!

Josh is a copywriter/ACD at Butler Shine Stern & Partners in Sausalito. His portfolio rocks. MC’s been hearing a bit of poo-pooing lately about Cargo—that while it’s clean, you can’t get the modern look you can with Squarespace. Might be true. And MC digs them both. But Josh’s portfolio proves that, if you’ve got the content, super-clean super-easy-to-nav is all you need.
