About Mark

Having progressed onto the third and final year of studying English and American Literature at the University of Kent, I am currently working for Reflect as an SEO intern; an opportunity of which I am very grateful for. 

 

How did I get into what I do?

Being at university can provide a plethora of opportunities for students who have no clue on what they want to do in life. As a freshman in first year, I knew that studying English would not lead to a direct career path, but, despite this, this was also beneficial for me in the sense that the skill set and knowledge that I would learn from this degree was flexible and broad, meaning that I could pursue multiple careers and interests. Some of the subjects that I was interested in were marketing, journalism, blogging, business, design, and law. Marketing, and, fundamentally, digital marketing, stood out as the career path that I was most passionate about and invested in. And from there I started to work and study marketing & digital marketing in my spare hours, throughout my time at University.

 

Why are you passionate about what you do?

SEO is an industry that is constantly changing; this appeals to me because I like to see where I can always improve and learn new things. The process of SEO is primarily scientific and technological, yet also an art. This is what I enjoy most about it as you can apply a mix of analytical and creative skills. People and clients who may not know much about digital marketing, or SEO, may feel disillusioned by this seemingly esoteric industry, so I am motivated to execute and deliver the best results possible, making the benefits of organic SEO seem more tangible.

Mark's Likes & Dislikes

Likes:

  • Playing Field Hockey: My 2 and a half year hockey career hasn’t been the best. 20 seconds into my debut, when I came on a sub, I tripped and face planted. In first year uni I was hospitalised because I got hit by a ball to the face. I think I’ve won about 10% of my total games. This season, though, I was in prime Aaron Ramsey 13/14 form whereby I scored about 3 goals in 4 games (in midfield!), and then coronavirus happened
  • Reading literature - my top three are: Othello, Frankenstein, and The Only Skill that Matters: The Proven Methodology to Read Faster, Remember More, and Become a SuperLearner
  • Exercising

Dislikes:

  • Seagulls (they stole my food once)
  • Tottenham Hotspurs
  • Swimming
