I arrived at Optimanova with no prior experience of working in the field of digital marketing but was eager to learn about the online world. My first impression of the company was a good one. I was introduced to the team who were very welcoming – they took me under their wing and supplied me with free snacks and drinks every day!
Shortly after arriving, my training and introduction to clients began. The initial training sessions covered the basics of digital marketing but they quickly gained pace and increased in technicality as my knowledge and understanding expanded.
I was given a variety of tasks including:SEO, SEM and content marketing, to name a few. I also had opportunity to further explore areas of particular interest to me. Being able to engage in a diverse range of tasks not only increased my technical knowledge but helped to improve my soft skills such as: ability to meet tight deadlines, prioritisation of workload and time management. These invaluable skills are transferable to any job and have made me a more well-rounded individual.
Working at Optimanova has truly been an incredible and fun experience. The multinational team was incredible to be a part of and has opened my eyes to new cultures and opportunities. I shall treasure my 9 months spent on the Island. The work, the people and the place have helped me to grow, both personally and professionally. I am sincerely thankful to the Company for the opportunities they have provided and have thoroughly enjoyed working with such an awesome team!
