My first month as an SEO & SEA specialist at upMentionBack
"I still have a job for you. Also, as an SEO specialist, if that suits you more."
After an earlier conversation about a sales position at upMention, the above message that Geerten sent on LinkedIn appealed to me even more. With several years of experience in web design and basic SEO knowledge, I became increasingly interested in SEO/SEA. Now I have the space to further specialize at upMention, and I enjoy the work that comes with it.
Working together with another culture gives me energy!
I was warmly welcomed at the Dutch office and included in a pleasant SEO team. It is a friendly atmosphere in the office. My colleagues are there for me and help me further to develop myself in the field of Search Engine Optimization. In addition, upMention has been an international company for a long time. I have already met several Kenyan colleagues through online meetings. African culture is familiar to me. With several trips I have been able to make to Ghana and Malawi, my love for this continent has grown. Plans are being made to return regularly to this beautiful continent.
Why I chose to work as an SEO & SEA specialist
"We know the secret of Google": this statement sticks with you. How do you ensure that a website is found? What does SEO optimization consist of, and how do you apply it? What tools can you use for this, and what tasks must be performed to achieve the customer's goal? How exactly does the technical side of SEO work? All these questions aroused my interest and gave me the energy to dive into the world of SEO/SEA. I have already applied several basic principles of SEO in my previous job. I enjoyed the work and became particularly interested in the technical side of SEO. Based on the above questions, interest and the invitation from Geerten, I concluded that I would like to delve further into this field.
How I experienced my first month at upMention
I look back very positively on my first month here at upMention. This month I was able to follow a lot of training courses and enjoyed working for our customers and being included in the parts of SEO & SEA. I look forward to continuing to learn and work with our international team.
