SEO Trainees* at diva-e: dedicated trainee program with certificate
In our 12-month SEO trainee program, you'll learn everything about search engine optimization in Google, Bing, etc. That means: You'll learn how websites land in the top positions in search engines for search queries - without having to place paid ads. Our SEO trainee program consists of theory and practice. During the course of the program, our experienced SEO experts teach you theoretical knowledge - which you can put into practice directly in our projects as an SEO trainee. Depending on your level of knowledge, you will take on your own tasks and be able to "look over the shoulder" of your colleagues as they work. In this way, you will learn in a very short time what exactly influences the ranking in search engines and how you can optimize the ranking results yourself. At the end of the trainee program, you will have the opportunity to acquire the BVDW certificate. We will prepare you for this for one year.
Components of the diva-e SEO trainee program
Our SEO trainee program consists of four components: professional training, personal development, project work and trainee support. As an SEO trainee, you receive a holistic education from us that optimally prepares you for your career in SEO.
Professional training: You will learn everything you need to know about search engine optimization as an SEO trainee with us. Our SEO trainee supervisors take care of the general theory of search engine optimization. There are bi-weekly sessions for this purpose. The curriculum is strongly based on the guidelines of the SEO trainee specialist certificate of the BVDW.
You will learn the practical expertise from your colleagues by working on customer projects: Your colleagues will assign you tasks and provide you with the necessary knowledge directly. They will be available to answer your questions and debrief you on the tasks.
In addition, we offer our SEO trainees a weekly question and answer session on all current SEO-related issues, independent of the curriculum. As an SEO trainee, you also have a training budget at your disposal, which you can use according to your own wishes to attend trade fairs, conferences and training courses, etc. In addition, you will receive free access to relevant trade magazines (such as Websiteboosting) and books.
Personal development: In addition to professional, SEO-specific skills, we also want to support you in your professional personal development. At the end of the trainee program, our SEO trainees should have the necessary tools to lead clients or (internal) project teams. Therefore, there are regular feedback meetings with the team leader and the supervisors of the trainee program. Likewise, you will have the opportunity to participate in various soft skill trainings (such as communication trainings, conflict management) and project management trainings.
Projects: As an SEO trainee at diva-e, you will gain insight into our client projects right from the start. On your first two days, we will give you a general introduction to the company. From the third day onwards, you will be firmly integrated into the project team and support your colleagues with operational tasks.
Trainee support: Our SEO trainees are supported by a core team consisting of long-term SEO experts. You will have two permanent contact persons who will support you with words and deeds at any time during your trainee period: a permanent mentor = a colleague who has also completed the trainee program and is now working with us in a permanent position. A specialist trainer = a specialist contact person from your team.

For example, you will support us in the creation of keyword and content marketing strategies as part of a cross-channel, data-driven optimization approach.
