Meet Alex… Our New SEO Apprentice

Hi, I’m Alex, the SEO Apprentice here at Teapot. I’ve been in post for just over six months now and by way of introduction I thought I would write a short blog, my first, telling you a bit about myself.

How I Got Here…..

Before I came to Teapot I spent two years at Yeovil College studying for an extended Level 3 BTEC Diploma in IT. College was great and I had lots of laughs. It was hard work though, but totally worth it.

After leaving college I began searching for a job. I sent my CV out to various firms around the area and started looking on-line.

I spotted the apprenticeship at Teapot on the National Apprenticeships website. It sounded like a great opportunity so I sent my CV to them hoping for the best. I was asked in for an informal chat and spent a few afternoons in the office with the team. I liked them… and I guess they liked me as they offered me the position as an SEO Apprentice.

Five months on, I’m well into my SEO training and really enjoying my job. I have one day each week set aside for my college work and for the rest of the week I work closely with Felix on the day-to-day projects which runs really well.

I have also developed a bit of a reputation as a technical troubleshooter and I am now the go-to guy for technical assistance when computers start playing up or the server has a bad day. Machines don’t like Mondays either.

Down Time

So, what do I like to do when not in the Teapot studio training to be an SEO Jedi with Ade & Felix?

Well, I’m a keen gamer (OK. I probably play too much). Some of my favourite games are Battlefield 4, Dota 2, Warframe and not forgetting theHalo series. I also like listening to music, especially bands such as Avenged Sevenfold, Foofighters, Killswitch Engage & Trivium. You might gather from this that I am a bit of a Metal fan as are at least half of the team here luckily for me!

Watching movies & TV, is another thing I enjoy doing. I’ve just finished the Breaking Bad series and am now eagerly awaiting the return of Game of Thrones in April. Can’t wait.

I love Indian food (there’s nothing like a good curry) and I am partial to drinking tea which goes down splendidly here. I do make a fairly good cuppa and I’m sure my colleagues would back me up on this 😀 Well maybe.

Ok, so my interests aren’t very “interesting” but they fill my spare time nicely.

The Road Ahead

I’m lucky to work with a great bunch of people here at Teapot and am enjoying the challenge of moving from college into the workplace in a structured way thanks to the apprenticeship scheme and the excellent support I receive from Somerset College of Arts & Technology. Cheers guys.
