Jr. Copywriter – Write it Forward
Website IPG Health
Do you have a passion for writing and an interest in healthcare? Perhaps your love for penning messaging and stories is just as strong as your curiosity for science? In the IPG Health Network, we create game-changing work that impacts lives for healthcare professionals, patients, and consumers.
We’re seeking writing talent from all walks of life to be part of Write It Forward in the Fall of 2022, a program aimed to recruit, train, and mentor talent from all backgrounds for science-focused, entry-level copywriting positions within our agencies. We will accept applications through Aug. 15, 2022 and the program will start around Sept. 19, 2022 (date is subject to change).
How Does It Work?
Write It Forward consists of a 12-week paid learning program, during which participants attend weekly 2-hour classes while working full time on a designated high-science creative team. Following the 12-week program participants may be hired into open positions as full-time Junior Copywriters. Write It Forward will run twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.
Write It Forward isn’t just an “internship”. It’s more like a “preceptorship” that is common in health-related fields. Basically, it’s a period of practical experience and training that is supervised by an expert or specialist in a particular field. Write It Forward is a structured, supportive period of transition from learning to applying the set of specific skills necessary for being a junior science copywriter. We are looking to invest in candidates who are in it for the long haul, willing to put in the work during the program and grow their career with us at the completion of the program.
Who Can Participate in Write It Forward?
We welcome talent from all backgrounds–including those from underrepresented groups–with the following characteristics and skills:
- Curiosity and love of words
- Passion for the science that is making a difference in patients’ lives
- Strong desire and drive to learn the skills of a promising career in a cutting-edge field
- Willingness to help the assigned team and tackle any tasks assigned
- An open mind that is receptive to feedback and supportive of team collaboration
- Attention to detail and strong organizational skills, particularly in digital file management
- Working knowledge of Microsoft Word, PowerPoint, and Excel
- Eagerness to actively participate in the Write It Forward Circle and mentor future participants
We encourage applicants from all walks of life. That means we are interested in you whether you are a recent college grad, exploring a second (or third) career, or in your last year of training, whatever training that may be. What is most important to us is your drive and passion, and your understanding of what an opportunity this is to start off in a great, rewarding, and secure career. You can really build something here, but you have to be committed and willing to put in the work. Once you know the basics, it’s like riding a bike.
