For the last few months I’ve been interning at Anicca getting to grips with SEO and Content related goodness. I officially started as an SEO executive from January 2015!
What I’ve done
So, I suppose you could say I’ve dabbled in a number of things, I’ve done some work at The Curve Theatre, and I’ve also worked on a project for Connexions Leicester helping local youths developing an online show for young people.
I’ve been running a film-based website, Movieville.org, since 2009, which I write film reviews and analysis for, and has become my pet project over the last few years. I have a personal blog I maintain, where I’ll talk about whatever is on my mind, reflect and generally just type whatever comes out of my fingertips.
Besides these things, I have a YouTube channel, I’ve written a feature length script, and made a film. I’m also writing a book.
So, not a lot, but I’ve dabbled.
Searching for Something Special
For a very long time I was trying to find a job that I’d be happy in. I had voluntary positions before, and although they were good, none of them gave me a sense of accomplishment the way working here does. Searching for the ‘right’ job is never an easy task, because it becomes more than just looking at financial implications; rather seeing what you can see yourself doing for a number of years to come.
I’m a firm believer in doing what you love, which is why I became an intern as a content writer at Anicca. It took a little time, but it was worth the long wait.
I wasn’t happy with the job I was in, I didn’t want to do a job because I HAD to. I wanted to do a job because I loved what I did.
Me and Everything in Between
A little about me – reading, watching films, Xbox-ing and the biggest one, writing – is what I enjoy doing. SEO is now a part of this list, as it’s now become a large part of my life.
As well as all of this, I’m also getting married in 6 months!
My passions include watching films, I have a library of over 300 which I revisit every so often, writing in my blog, karandholakia.co.uk, where I log my thoughts and views on various topics.
There’s much more to me than those things, I’m on Twitter @Movievillekazed so drop me a line!
