What oakers say
Iris van der Meij
SEO & Content consultant
At OAK, thanks to the traineeship, I managed to retrain myself as an SEO in one year. It never ceases to amaze me how much I have been able to develop myself as a consultant in the years since, because my personal interests have always been taken into account. The various projects I have had the opportunity to (co-)work on in recent years have also helped in this development. No matter how big or small the projects are or have been, you keep learning in every project. Although the basis of each project is the same, the rules of play are always slightly different. This means that you always keep learning and can turn different knobs to achieve organic growth. What makes it extra fun for me is that you then pass on that knowledge to the customer, which allows me to convey my enthusiasm about organic growth there as well. How cool to then achieve great results together. What are those great results? They can be position increases, but also a new way-of-working or expansion of the 'standard' SEO work. Anything that can contribute to the client's (organic) growth results!
'Work hard, play hard'. That's how I could best describe my time at OAK. I started as a trainee there I was immediately encouraged to focus on the topics I liked most. That is not something you can take for granted! I have since grown into an SEO specialist. I make sure our clients get the insights they need to achieve organic growth - from keyword analyses to technical SEO scans. And that for the leading brands in the Netherlands and Europe. You work hard, but you also get a lot in return. Especially if you include the fun colleagues and the crazy parties.
