Eliza's Story: Copywriting Internship at Melbourne
This is Eliza!
She studied at Curtin University and graduated in 2019 with a Bachelor of Arts in Communications and Cultural Studies. Eliza progressed from her copywriting internship to her current position as a freelance copywriter at BLANK THEORY, a digital marketing company.
Could you tell us what it's like to work at BLANK THEORY during your Copywriting Internship?
I was placed with Blank Theory, a digital marketing agency based in Melbourne. Blank Theory develops digital strategies that are designed to help brands reach their full potential. I was taken on as an intern content producer, which was essentially a copywriting role.
My main tasks during my copywriting internship were to write product descriptions and marketing material for websites and social media platforms. I was also given some proofreading/editing tasks and research assignments to complete. It was my responsibility to closely follow the allocated writing briefs and produce content that accurately reflected the brand's message.
What kind of impact do you believe you received as a Copywriting Intern?
This copywriting internship taught me how to use my writing skills for the purposes of digital marketing, which is a booming industry of which I had almost no prior knowledge. Being able to acquire skills in copywriting and content production for social media will be invaluable to me as I move forward in my career. I've also made great contacts and even landed contracted copywriting work, so I feel more prepared than ever to continue building my career within the industry.
What did ABI help you with the most?
When I first started working with Artbound Initiative, I didn't really know how to take the skills I'd acquired at university into the professional world. ABI taught me how to pitch myself in person, through the application process, and online.
They helped me to build a portfolio and strengthen my resume immeasurably. After taking these steps to prepare for an internship, everything else fell into place. Building a career within the creative industry had always seemed completely daunting, but ABI gave me the tools, knowledge, and experience to begin my professional journey.
ABI has equipped me with essential resources, different expertise, and a more hands-on experience that have prepped me on my professional journey
