It would appear that my quest to get a placement during my time at university has been successfully accomplished.
The boss at Aberdeen Web Design company Studio NEC has kindly allowed me to join his team with the main part of my daily tasks being involved heavily in the SEO area of their services. I will be joining the team on as many days as I can manage to fit in around my university timetable, but I am extremely excited to get stuck in and start seeing results for both their own website as well as current and future clients.
I’m pretty sure I’m capable enough to make an impact whilst also being able to develop my skills in the field of SEO. My tasks, I believe won’t be only on the optimisation of websites, but also will include dabbling in other web design/development aspects of their client work. This has to be the best kind of placement that I could have asked for as it allows me to get my hands dirty in every aspect of the things I will be learning at uni AND some extra stuff that can only truly be learned on the practical side of things.
I cannot wait to start with them and hope it is the start of something much bigger. Keep an eye on your rankings folks, ‘cos I’m coming for you.
