Apple Copywriter Internship

Apple designs Macs, the best
personal computers in the world, along with OS X, iLife, iWork, and
professional software. Apple leads the digital music revolution with its
iPods and iTunes online store. Apple is reinventing the mobile phone
with its revolutionary iPhone and App Store, and has recently introduced
its magical iPad which is defining the future of mobile media and
computing devices.

Looking for a copywriting student to spend the
summer at Apple. You would be working on projects and campaigns with
design interns, which would potentially include work across social
media, in-store posters for Apple stores, web, app development, and
iAds. Ideally you’re able to write great headlines and body copy so we
could also pull you in on other day-to-day projects. And as you can
probably guess, you would need to write in a way that makes all the tech
stuff easy to understand and keeps with the voice of the Apple Brand.
By the end of the summer you’ll have written a lot, everyday, and
potentially have your work seen by millions of people worldwide.

Good things to have:
•     Advertising writing with headline experience
•     Ability to tell a story and be creative
•     A positive attitude and curious mind
