Connor is a copywriter at LESS Co. in Minneapolis. Before that, he was a copywriter / digital strategist / community manager for Totino’s at General Mills, including Pizza Rolls. (Funny banner headline from Connor’s site: “Pizza Rolls. Because, Pizza Rolls.” Yes.) There is no more perfectly delicious / perfectly bad for you food product than Totino’s Pizza Rolls. How did Connor survive working on the account?!?!

Avery Henderson, Community Coordinator at Victors & Spoils in Boulder, is looking for an ACD and senior copywriters. From Avery: “Wanted: ACD & Sr. Copywriters with agency experience and a proven prowess with the written word to join our Boulder crew. If interested, you must be willing to step outside the comforts of a traditional agency and embrace both the nature of the startup culture and new ways of creating advertising. So an eager work ethic, an entrepreneurial attitude and a strong desire to learn and grow is essential.
You’ll have the opportunity to creatively support all client accounts, think conceptually and strategically and work closely with the V&S creative community to help prepare ideas for client presentation. Ideally, you’ll also have some production experience – in broadcast, print, digital and beyond – as you may be asked to lead or guide the execution of certain projects. And most importantly, you should be a cultural fit, which may or may not include a willingness to tolerate or join our agency’s competitive cornhole league.
- Candidate must possess proven leadership, organizational and communication skills.
- Candidate must be amenable to performing tasks both above and below his or her title, since a small agency culture often requires that you wear a lot of hats.
Give us a sense of who you are and why you’re the right person for the job. Be creative, but don’t forget to provide a link to your portfolio as part of your application.”
