What it’s Like to be… an SEO Strategy Lead

I’ve been doing a lot of thinking recently about what I want to be when I grow up* and I realised I really enjoyed making my How To Get A Job series last year – and that recruitment is a pretty interesting subject.

With this in mind, I wanted to go a little further down this rabbit hole and look into the different areas of work people can go into. I had a fairly rural upbringing and when I was a kid, everyone’s parents were very basic jobs – teachers, secretaries, police officers etc. I look at my friends now and realise that I have so many people doing really amazing things, so I decided to question them!

Promoting Better Financial Skills

financial awareness

Recently, I was on the BBC. Yup, national BBC – not just local. It turns out that 1/3 of millennials will be renting for life and they wanted someone to come speak about it.

Teacher Appreciation Day

teacher appreciation day

Today is Teacher Appreciation Day. It is something I have been vaguely aware of in the past due to Americans on social media, but I’m pretty sure British people don’t celebrate.

I think we should start.

There’s a financial awareness game that this wonderful organisation called CHYPPS do in schools sometimes. In the activity the students firstly pick a job, then pick a home, then make choices based on how much money they have left. Do they have enough to shop at Tescos each week, or do they need to shop ad Aldi? [Read more…]
