Copywriters Wanted: TracyLocke, CT


Erika Udstuen, Global Talent Scout at TracyLocke, is on the hunt for a copywriter to join their Wilton, Connecticut office. From TracyLocke: “If you want to make a difference, you have to do things differently. That’s why we don’t think like marketers; rather, we live like designers, putting intent and purpose behind every thought. For the past 100 years, that purpose has been to motivate people to buy. And because buying is about believing, we design brand experiences that reshape the ways people behave by giving them more reasons to connect with brands and products than ever before. At TracyLocke, nothing we do is by default. Everything We Do Is Buy Design.


TracyLocke’s Connecticut office is growing. We are looking for several Copywriters with passion and talent in abundance who desire a creative and collaborative environment.

Whether your first word was written, or you were inspired by the world’s greatest mentors along your journey, we want to hear from you.

How do you make it into the halls of TracyLocke? Have a great on-line portfolio with samples of relevant brand solutions to client and consumer challenges. A campaign or two that creates a connection between a consumer’s heart and head. Your samples must articulate your passion and showcase years of thoughtful blood, sweat and tears from your journalism and advertising school. The right attitude is a must.

If you believe that the work is everything, contact us.

We have opportunities on three of our global brand accounts.


  • Journalism, Advertising, or Portfolio School recommended.
  • An on-line portfolio with work samples are required to be considered.
