Why hello there!
I started my communications internship here at MOS Creative at the beginning of January. When I started, I wasn’t familiar with the term SEO, I had never interviewed a client, my writing skills needed to improve, and I never truly felt like I was a part of a team at any workplace – until I started here.
Even though I have only been here for a couple of months, I’ve learned so much! Here are just a few key tips I’ve acquired so far:
- SEO: Google it, learn about it, embrace it! It is very important to know about certain key terms that can affect the visibility of your site. I believe any traffic is important.
- Ask questions. Don’t be afraid to bother your supervisors when you are given a task you may not understand 100%. Remember: it’s part of their job to help you learn and grow!
- Admit when you’re wrong. Mistakes happen. They’re a part of life, and they’re especially a part of the workplace. If you’ve made a mistake, don’t point fingers or play the blame game. Taking responsibility for your actions in the workplace takes a great amount of courage and bravery.
- Do your research. If you have spare time at work, look up websites that are related to your field of interest. Devour as much information as you can.
Lastly, go with your gut. I know this is something you may here often, but there are going to be many occurrences in which you’ll have to make a big decision on something that is work-related.
These short (but useful!) tips should take you far in the workplace – it has for me!
