Circle of Success Member Lands High-Profile Full-Time Copywriting Job Thanks to Smart Networking
It All Happened at Fastrack to Copywriting Success Bootcamp and Job Fair
AWAI’s FastTrack to Copywriting Success Bootcamp and Job Fair can change lives. For Circle of Success member Jeremy Rasmussen, it certainly has. He’s just moved to Baltimore, starting a new full-time copywriting job with powerhouse financial publisher Stansberry & Associates Investment Research. And it started at Bootcamp 2016 – Jeremy’s first ever.
“It feels great! It was my goal to go to Bootcamp and get an in-house position at a financial publisher … and it happened,” says Jeremy. “To me the financial niche is where technology, business, history, and economics all intersect … and I find all those subjects fascinating. Plus, I like the idea of being in a competitive industry.”
Bootcamp attendees have plenty of opportunity to meet face-to-face with marketers and publishers looking to hire AWAI-trained copywriters. Everybody is very approachable. And Jeremy, who also won a Bootcamp Spec Challenge at the 2016 event, took full advantage of the opportunity.
“I approached the representative from Stansberry Research during a break between speakers and told her I had been a reader of their work for a few years and was familiar with their products and copy. At the Job Fair I talked to her again and did a spec for them … which they liked.”
Job Fair is the ideal chance to network with high-profile clients and make a connection that could lead to a freelance project or even a full-time copywriting job, as it did for Jeremy.
Jeremy has a go-for-it attitude that is key to success as a copywriter. But he also credits his copywriting education through AWAI.
“Circle of Success is by far the biggest turning point in my education and confidence … all the programs and live training can really speed up the learning process. Also, my first Bootcamp was amazing and I will definitely be going back next year,” says Jeremy.
For Jeremy, this new job is a complete 180 from his past career as the manager of a woodworking shop, and he’s thrilled to have achieved his writer’s life.
“Freedom … over my time … over my finances … over my location. It’s a lifestyle that really gets me excited,” says Jeremy.
