When I first blogged about Fresh Egg’s SEO Intern Training Programme I commented “this internship is a great shot for someone”. Little did I realize that I would find blog fodder to continue this story. Of course when I heard that Rand Fishkin of SEOmoz had sent Rebecca to this training I had to follow the story. After all how many people could say they’ve had the opportunity to learn from such seo luminaries as Rand and Ammon Johns? Well now Rebecca can say that since she passed the training program “with flying colours” according to Ammon.
She’s now also the first (and so far only) SEO practitioner in the world to have worked with both Rand Fishkin and myself, and to have learned from both. It will be interesting to watch her future career and see what she does from such an interesting starting point in her first year in this industry. Of course, it comes as no surprise, I’m certain, that Rebecca came through the training and graduated with flying colours.
Rebecca obviously enjoyed the experience and I’m sure she got the most out of it. Here’s what she had to say;
This experience was very valuable for me because it gave me an opportunity to learn SEO from someone other than Rand. Rand is a fantastic teacher and has taught me all I know about SEO, so to learn under a different perspective was fascinating in that it sometimes forced me to approach tasks differently than what I’m used to, and it also gave me a stronger understanding of why Rand does things a certain way.
You can read more about this at the Fresh Egg blog and Rebecca will be no doubt going into further detail at the Daily SEO Blog when she gets back and gathers her thoughts. Congrats Rebecca, not only looking forward to what you have to say about the SEO Intern Training Programme but also looking forward to all your future posts.
