Advertising Copywriter Resume

Advertising copywriting is much more than simply writing a few lines for an advertisement. An advertising copywriter working at an advertising agency firstly needs to understand the advertising needs of the object for which he/she is writing. In fact, advertisement production is team work in which every person’s task is dependent on the work performed by his/her teammates.

An advertisement copywriter must have extra ordinary imaginative skills accompanied by strong command over language comprehension. The advertisement media may vary as per the needs of the product and choice made by the client. Hence, the copywriter must have equally good writing dexterity for any of the advertising medium such as print media (newspaper, magazine, etc.), radio or television (or even the internet!).
