Over the last few years, we’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of Swinburne’s finest graduates who have all continued to work at Optimising as full time employees.
“I joined Optimising through my university’s placement program and it has been such an invaluable learning and growing experience for my professional development! Their initial training program really helped me build a strong foundation of SEO fundamentals which I was then able to directly apply throughout my individual campaigns. I thoroughly enjoyed working with the supportive, passionate and driven team at Optimising who made my experience entering into the workplace exciting and fulfilling.”
“The Optimising Graduate Program was an incredible opportunity to build the foundational industry knowledge I gained from university in a practical, real world setting, trusted with my own portfolio of clients. Working alongside a talented team, mentored by senior employees I was given consistent feedback on not only areas of improvement but also my strengths, challenged to progress my skills and also feeling recognised as a valued team member. Having graduated from this program, I couldn’t imagine graduating my degree without this hands-on experience, getting industry insight, tips, and knowledge that would be almost impossible from university alone.”
“I had the pleasure of joining the Optimising team in 2018 as part of a 12-month professional placement program through my university, Swinburne. During the first few months, I was taught foundational knowledge and skills for SEO, paid media, and general website development. After my placement was completed, I proceeded to specialise in paid media at Optimising for the next 4 years, working with many SMBs through to large-scale multinationals. I met many brilliant minds working at Optimising. I made great friends, achieved great results for clients, and even got the opportunity to improve on my own personal weakness, public speaking! I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for this fantastic team. If you like the idea of digital marketing and the ever-changing industry, I encourage you to apply, you won’t regret it!”
“This 12-month placement helped prepare me to be head and shoulders above other students who’re studying the same course as I am. Now I not only have great resume material but feel confident and capable of utilising my Pay-Per-Click (PPC) knowledge in this job and for the rest of my career. Optimising’s work culture has made me feel super welcomed. I knew this was the right placement after my first week here, where I had my 21st birthday and Optimising organised a cake from my favourite ice-cream shop!”
