“Everybody you meet and everything you do has a greater purpose in life”
I always believe what Steve Jobs once said – “You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards”. This quote has always resonated with me, guiding me through the twists and turns of my career path. My transition from engineering to SEO specialist at WrittenlyHub is a testament to the power of embracing uncertainty, following one’s passion, and trusting that the dots will eventually connect.
From Engineering to the Corporate World: My First Job
Fresh out of college with a degree in electronics engineering, I embarked on my professional journey as an Embedded Design Engineer at an electronics manufacturing company. While I was grateful for the opportunity to apply my technical skills, I soon realized that this path didn’t ignite my passion. The monotony of the work and the lack of creative fulfillment left me yearning for something more.
After eight months, I decided to take a leap of faith and quit my job. I was at a crossroads, unsure of my future career path. I explored different avenues, interning in various fields to gain new experiences and perspectives. This period of exploration was crucial in helping me discover my true interests and potential.
How I Got into the Field of SEO
In the midst of this exploration, I stumbled upon the world of digital marketing. I was intrigued by the concept of digital marketing and its strategies to promote businesses online.
As I delved deeper into the world of digital marketing, I became increasingly fascinated by the power of SEO. The idea of optimizing websites to rank higher in search engines, attracting organic traffic, and driving business growth resonated deeply with me.
Determined to master this field, I enrolled in digital marketing and SEO courses, eager to equip myself with the necessary skills and knowledge. I explored online resources, studied case studies, and experimented with various SEO techniques. With each step, my passion for SEO grew stronger.
