Trey is a senior copywriter at Fuse in Los Angeles. The first four projects on his site are for Kawasaki, and they include TV, print, interactive, and a manifesto vid. What’s more fun, as a copywriter, than writing a company’s manifesto vid? Especially when the company makes motorcycles? So fun.

Shanteka Sigers, SVP/ECD at SandersWingo in Austin (and friend of MC), is looking for copywriters. From Shanteka: “SandersWingo was founded by David Sanders, a copywriter. He once got a 92-second radio spot on the air. He went on daily two-hour hikes and ate whole grains in the ’80s. Most people ate cocaine for breakfast in the ’80s. And most importantly, David Sanders taught that our job is to make things happen right now. I need copywriters in Austin and El Paso. All levels. You’ll work on big brands like AT&T, Burger King and MINI. You’ll work on small brands like Run For The Water, El Paso Electric and the District Attorney of El Paso. The DA let us create an award-winning domestic violence brochure hidden inside a lipstick case, and feng shui his waiting area. I’m looking for some swashbuckling, enterprising, David Sanders-esque copywriters that want to make things happen. Healthy diet optional.” Interested? Contact Shanketa at the address below.

So hard to pick which VCU CW grad portfolios to feature during VCU Brandcenter Week! They’ve all got something special about them. Don’t miss Andrew’s Botot radio (the world’s first toothpaste, created for King Louis XV, who knew?), and Shun Cutlery campaign (Honor Haiku, funny). Nice to see some creativity in brand/client selection. Good times.

VCU Brandcenter Week Tuesday: Mr. Daniel Chen. Lots of fun writing all over his site, including a type solution campaign for Wonderbra (not kidding) and Sad Children’s Projects, which really is one of the saddest things MC has ever seen in a portfolio. Macaroni WE CAN’T AFFORD THIS and homemade 3RD FAVORITE SON medal. Yes.

VCU Brandcenter Week! Love it. And Kai is a perfect start to the week. He was an intern copywriter at inHouse, Target’s fabulous internal creative department, back in 2010, when MC was a Creative Manager there. Kai could have probably gone right from that internship into a job, but instead decided that he wanted to learn more. He didn’t just want a good first job, he wanted a great first job, and he recognized that what he needed to get it was, well, VCU. Now, couple of years later, here he is, graduating from VCU, and that’s crazy awesome. Congrats, Kai!

Dave is a freelance copywriter/CD in Nashville (Nashville Addy’s “2012 Copywriter of the Year”), previously at BBDO and Hill Holiday. Lots of beautiful writing all over his site for clients like LandTrust of Tennessee, United Methodist Church, and Boys & Girls Club of Boston.

Rich is a copywriter in Boston, formerly at Arnold. Actually, he was recently let go by Arnold, which would be a bummer for anyone. However, Rich took the opportunity to write his colleagues a good-bye email that is, in his words, “at least as good as any of the other stuff I wrote while I was there.” Check out his email on AgencySpy here. Or check out his other stuff by clicking on the link below.

Hall is a copywriter in Denver, previously at Factory Labs, now looking for his next gig. His link was featured on MC in Summer 2012 as part of Creative Circus CW Grad Week. So cool to see what he’s added since then.

Greg is a copywriter in Salt Lake City, currently at MRM/McCann. He’s got a shiny new Carbonmade site and a bunch of fun writing all over it, from brand identity manifesto to words on the side of a beer can. Got to take advantage of every opportunity, because you never know what’s going to hit. Dig it.

Todd is a copywriter in Minneapolis, previously at digital agency space150 (for six years). Definitely got the digital chops. But he’s also a wordsmith—with years of proofreading experience before becoming a copywriter, and a degree in English Lit. Love that.

Elinna Vega, Creative Recruiter at 360i in NYC, is looking for a copywriter. From Elinna: “360i is looking for writers because I’m not one. We love writers who tell stories and not the ones that begin with ‘once upon a time’. We strive for original, ground breaking, industry elevating, brand heightening, multi-platform stories/ideas (i.e.: Bacon Barter, Daily Oreo Twist). We encourage and solicit ideas from all levels of our creatives and we move fast – break neck speed fast. If you have stories to tell, come share them and get work produced for some of the world’s largest brands. Plus, we have free-flowing caffeine (in all its forms) and beer!” Wait. Beer???
