As August unfolds, we’re thrilled to share the latest updates from The FCDC.

 

These updates will offer a transparent glimpse into our achievements and upcoming initiatives this month.

 

 Three FCDC Tech SEO Trainees have secured internships.

 

We’re delighted to announce that three of our former tech SEO trainees have gotten internships:

 

 

  • Amaka Jubilee Chukwuma: Embarking on a journey as an SEO intern at Second Eclipse.
  • Camille Martin: Making valuable contributions as an intern at WordLift.
  • Nafisah Mayun: She has now been promoted from an SEO intern to a Technical SEO specialist at Second Eclipse.

 

These wonderful ladies were taught by Roxana Stingu during the FCDC tech SEO training sponsored by Ahrefs

Local SEO for Good is a two-day online fundraising event bringing local search insights to marketers and businesses all over the world. Through ticket sales and donations, they’re aiming to raise money for a multitude of charities and NPOs close to the hearts of the experts speaking and presenting.

  • Content Marketing cohort taught by Erika Vranguli the VP of International Brand at Semrush.

 

  • Copywriting taught by Sara Sal, Facebook and LinkedIn Ads specialist at Hootsuite.

We are also very thankful to SERanking and Rickety Roo for coming on as our cohort sponsors.

Mentor Applications are Still Open.

 

This September, the FCDC is embarking on a 2-month journey to help our members improve their content and SEO skills.  Mentorship empowers growth and learning, and it can be life-changing for the mentees.

 

We are in need of experienced mentors to guide our members through this transformative journey.

 

The mentorships are starting on the 1st of September, 2023.

  • It’ll run for 2 months
  • 1-hour video call per week.

 

Please consider becoming a mentor and help us make a difference.

 

If you know someone interested in mentoring, please encourage them to become a mentor.
