    • Research clients and their industries to understand products, audiences, competition and trends.
    • Keep your finger on the pulse of news, pop culture and ad industry trends to write content that’s relevant.
    • Stay organized and work well under pressure, juggling several projects at once and hitting deadlines.
    • Work with design and video teams to contribute to visual direction.
    • Present concepts and copy alongside a Creative Director, explaining your ideas and taking feedback.
    • Exhibit a drive for learning, self-improvement and growth.
    • Work within a multi-disciplinary team to communicate project statuses, extend your concepts across media and develop digital content ideas.
