I had a great time at Optimanova in Tenerife. Unfortunately, I had to spend the first 3 months of my internship in my home office in Germany due to the Corona pandemic and only then was able to travel to the beautiful island. Despite the distance, I always felt very comfortable and in good hands. The whole team at Optimanova is great and I really enjoyed working with everyone. From day one, I was fully integrated into the team, allowed to work on tasks independently, lead my own small projects and got to work directly for the agency’s clients. Now, after my 6 months at Optimanova, I have a comprehensive overview of the world of online marketing, from SEO & SEA, to content optimization and data analysis. I was able to find my strengths and which tasks do not perfectly match my ideas of my future job. I would recommend an internship at Optimanova to everyone, firstly because of the great team and the very interesting work and secondly because it is a unique experience to live on this paradise like island.

My internship at Optimanova was really the best first experience I could ever hope for. Everyone was lovely and welcomed me warmly. I felt like a part of the team right from the first day.
I could learn a lot about digital marketing, Google Ads and Wikipedia. The team provided me with different training and I was also given the opportunity to pass different Google Ads certifications through Google Skillshops.
My main tasks were related to link marketing, SEM and SEO, and even though I didn’t like everything equally, it was really interesting to learn about the online marketing world.
Despite the lockdown because of coronavirus, my 6 months here went by really fast and I enjoyed my time here. Tenerife is a heavenly island to live in, always sunny and you can enjoy both the sea, forests and the volcano.
Either being for the living environment or for the office atmosphere, I really recommend doing an internship at Optimanova !
Thank you to everyone at Optimanova for such an amazing experience! Before coming to Tenerife, I had little knowledge about digital marketing. SEO, SEM, SERP, PPC were just crazy acronyms that I did not understand. After 6 months at Optimanova, I have gained skills and confidence using digital marketing tools.The staff at Optimanova were always helpful and open to questions no matter how small. With their expertise and guidance, I have learned about Google Ads, Google Analytics as well as additional tools like Ahrefs and Semrush. The weekly meetings and additional training sessions were also helpful, while working on client projects allowed me to receive real-life experience.
On top of that the sunny island of Tenerife provided plenty of excitement! I was able to summit Teide, kayak with dolphins, dance Salsa, learn to surf and hike through dense-rainforests of Anaga among other adventures.
In short, the island life provides adventure, the incredible, multicultural staff provides knowledge, and your time at Optimanova provides an experience of a lifetime.
Working at Optimanova Solutions was a huge learning experience. I had little knowledge about Digital Marketing and within my 6 months here, I feel not only incredibly knowledgeable but also confident to pursue a career in this work field. The Optimanova team consists of people who are friendly, sociable and will welcome you from day one.
During the internship, I was taught how to work with Google AdWords, about Link Marketing and Social Media Optimisation, just to name a few areas. With everything that I’ve learned, I am excited to continue developing in these areas!
In a nutshell, not only will you be able to enjoy the beautiful island of Tenerife, but also learn what Digital Marketing is and can effectively accomplish in a smart and realistic way. And there are addition perks in the forms of free cups of coffee and tasty snacks!
What a sunny and enriching internship! I arrived at Optimanova without any knowledge about digital marketing (PPC, SEO…) but the team took the time to well introduce me to all the notions, software (Google Ads and Google Analytics) through training sessions and practice. Little by little I have gained skills that will be precious for my future professional life and was given some important responsibilities. What I liked in this internship is that I have done different things like writing ads, setting up campaigns, analyzing data, preparing reports…
I not only learned a lot of things but also met an amazing team and shared some memorable moments. I was quickly considered as a team member of Optimanova after my arrival.
To sum up, this internship is the perfect balance between learning, taking responsibilities, laughing and enjoying beaches, nature and all the landscapes that Tenerife can offer.
Working at Optimanova has truly been a pleasure. Not only did I improve my skills and knowledge in digital marketing but I also got to know an amazing team. Starting from the first day, I was welcomed with open arms (and amazing food)! I immediately felt like a part of this motivated and creative team. During my internship, I also had the opportunity to take part in some highly effective training sessions in Google Analytics, Google AdWords, and so on. Having done several internships before, I can say with confidence that this particular one was a so-called once in a lifetime opportunity. I was given a lot of responsibility since day one and was able to grow professionally as well as personally.
But also besides working at Optimanova, spending 6 months on Tenerife was truly an incredible experience. I could improve my Spanish, learned how to dance Salsa and Bachata, and met some amazing people. And although I haven’t even left the island yet, I cannot wait to come back to this paradise.
My 6 months as an intern at Optimanova went by so fast!
I discovered so many digital tools and it transformed my vision of marketing. I met not only colleagues but an awesome team, always enthusiastic and willing to share their culture and experiences all together. I enjoyed my time on this amazing island, surrounded by incredible black-sand beaches, mountains, a volcano, ocean and palm trees everywhere. It was such a unique and unforgettable experience, thank you so much!
During my time at Optimanova I not only learned a lot about online marketing, but I also developed my personal skills. From the first day, I got fully integrated into the team and had my own responsibilities. I was mainly working in link marketing and Google AdWords. Besides learning a lot at work I was also able to participate in Google’s AdWords Academy and got certified with the Google Ads Search and Google Ads Display Certification. It was great to put everything I learned in the academy directly into practice at work.
The small team of 14 people was like a family and besides working together, some of us also went to the gym together or met for dinner every once in a while. Talking about food… as an intern at Optimanova be prepared for a team full of food lovers, a cupboard full of snacks and the IFF (International Food Festival) where everyone brings homemade food to share for lunch. Yum!
Overall, living in Puerto de la Cruz and working at Optimanova for six months has been great and I am thankful for everything I have learned and experienced during my time on Tenerife.
During my studies I did an internship abroad at Optimanova Solutions and got the opportunity to deepen my skills in online marketing. The team consists of young and dynamic people who made me feel like a full member of the team from day one. This feeling was reinforced by the varied and responsible tasks I was assigned. The two biggest areas of work (among many others) were Google AdWords and link marketing. Previous knowledge is not necessary, you are very well introduced to new tasks and tools. You can work independently on your tasks and ask for guidance or feedback if needed at any time. I would recommend the internship at Optimanova Solutions, it is a great stepping stone into the SEM. I am very grateful for what I have learnt and for who I met during my experience on the Canary Islands!
Having studied International Business Management, I had no prior knowledge of Online Marketing. That’s why I am all the more grateful for getting a deep insight into the world of SEO and SEA. It encouraged me to explore job opportunities in this future-oriented business.
From the start of my internship, I was involved in different very interesting projects in several languages. The experience at Optimanova allowed me to develop my skills, to work independently and exchange ideas about digital marketing trends.
I am truly grateful for the opportunity to work with such an international, experienced and lovely team.
The digitising of our world brings a lot of challenges and opportunities. Especially the world of marketing changed a lot in the last decade. Flyers and banners are disappearing whereas online-marketing strategies are getting more and more relevant. No wonder! Digitalisation helps to advertise in a more targeted and customized way.
Within this internship at Optimanova with the help of a fantastic team in a great work environment and a lot of excellent office snacks, I got a deep insight into those digital marketing strategies.
