WA Got Me a Job Today!
I Was Hired Today! And It's All Thanks to Wealthy Affiliate!
Today I was accepted for the position of Blog Editor for a large website. It seems like a perfect fit for me, and I am over-the-moon excited to get started!
Six months ago, though, I would not have been able to do this job. Heck, I would not have even been able to apply! The job requirements include all of the following:
- knowledge of WordPress
- ability to use plug-ins
- understanding + using affiliate links correctly!
- understanding of SEO + keyword usage in blog posts
- sourcing images to use in blog posts
- hyperlinking images + optimizing for SEO
- scheduling content + social media posts
The only reason I know how to do ANY of these things is because of WA! If I had attempted the test assignment they had me do without the knowledge I've gained here, I would have been so baffled! But because I was familiar with all of it already, it was a breeze! I got 90% correct on the first try.
I even gave you guys a shout-out in my application letter, which probably didn't hurt my chances... ;)
I am also enrolled in a course for online business, where I am actively learning WordPress and keyword research for SEO, along with other related topics. I have the benefit of all the course resources as well as their knowledgeable community.
You never know where this training will take you!
These skills are invaluable in so many different areas. Even if you find that Affiliate Marketing may not be 100% right for you, keep learning. Don't give up. There are so many opportunities that can arise as a result of this training.
The only downside to my new job is that I won't have as much time to spend on my business and other projects. I have a lot of ideas that I want to work on, and I'm not sure how much time this will take up. But I won't know that until I actually begin the work. It seems like something I will really enjoy, so the rest I will just have to manage the best I can.
Here I go on my new journey! Wish me luck!
