    Freelance to Full-Time Remote Copywriter: Karisa's Story

    Freelance to Full-Time Remote Copywriter: Karisa's Story

    Karisa started her copywriting career the way many of our students do: while working another full-time job. She started pitching just a few months after joining the CCA during Pitch-a-Palooza, an annual student-only event designed to get everyone writing and sending their first pitches. Karisa received a response to one of those first pitches, officially launching her freelancing career. But it wasn't long before she found, applied for, and landed a full-time copywriting job.


    This episode was recorded in two parts, the first back in early 2020, and the second in early 2021 so we could catch up with Karisa and see how her career evolved from freelance copywriter to full-time remote copywriter working with an organization she loves.

    Are There Too Many Copywriters?

    You’ve probably heard us say before that there is so much more work that requires good, skilled copywriters than there are good, skilled copywriters to take on all that work.

    Why? Because there are SO MANY companies and organizations out there. And copy is essential to ALL companies and organizations.
