Luxury Copywriters, it’s No Wukkas Time

By Matt Van Hoven 

“One man’s trash is another man’s treasure,” comes to mind as I post the following copywriting gig. Buyers beware, this is not an agency job. Maybe I should only open this one to Grey folks then, or maybe DraftFCB. Alternate headline: Hey Grey! Luxury Copywriters, it’s No Wukkas Time.

For what it’s worth, Bergdorf Goodman’s in-house shop is hiring a writer:


&#151 5 or more years of copywriting work experience

&#151 Editing and proofreading experience are important

&#151 Excellent organizational and communication skills are a must

&#151 Must be detail-oriented and able to handle a high volume of writing under tight deadlines

&#151 Strong follow up and research skills and the ability to work independently to get projects completed

&#151 Must understand the competitive landscape and stay updated on fashion/beauty/accessory trends

&#151 Bachelor’s degree in English, Journalism, Communications, Advertising, Marketing, Direct Response or Promotion (or comparable work experience) from an accredited college

&#151 Working knowledge of Macintosh, proficiency with Word, experience with database tools and knowledge of Internet technology

Desperate times call for reconsidering how important your pride really is. Or not. But hey, now you know it’s there.

note: Hey fake Han Solo, your…your hair is great…good luck with that.
