My first week was filled with words and facts I didn’t know existed such as “boiler plate text.” If I had not Googled that phrase, I would still think it was a culinary term. Honestly, I had a lot of catching up to do. I'm glad my mentors, Adam and Andrew, were on hand to explain it to me. Throughout the week, I was pleasantly surprised to find Totally's work environment inclusive, buzzing and fun. It was the first time I had been in a company meeting discussing weekly updates and love life check-up’s. The latter being my personal favourite.
All in all, the highlight of my week was understanding the processes and people of Totally. During the week I was asked why I liked working in SEO. My “cool-guy” answer is because it is a mirror of society and culture in a way. In the end, in order to understand where SEO is going, you must examine the past, dissect the present and attempt to predict the future of digital marketing.
