After a couple of days hunting, I’ve finally settled on a WordPress theme for my blog and accordingly now seems as good as time as any to introduce myself. In September 2009, after two business degrees I figured my time at university should come to an end and I should start contributing to UK GDP.
Just two weeks after completing my MA in European Business at Royal Holloway, I was very fortunate to get a job. With my academic background I could have taken the path of a management graduate scheme, but rather I’ve decided to start a career in digital marketing. I love it too much.
Digital marketing isn’t something covered a lot (if at all) at university in neither my marketing or advertising modules, so the learning curve can be steep. I could quite happily give a 30 minute presentation on the democratic deficit at the heart of the EU institutions, or the impact of institutional shareholding on different models of capitalism across the EU, but to ask me to give a 30 minute presentation on link building would present a challenge.
That’s why I’m working my way up from the bottom. Digital marketing is a passion for me, and knowing SEO well is going to be an essential skill in my career. So let the fun begin.
