Through IT vision, IT process, and IT solution, Black Diamond will guide you through everything your company needs to operate in today’s market.

I was hired by Black Diamond Solutions as one their main marketing interns. My main focus of area is blog researching/writing and SEO work. I help them optimize their website so they appear in Google rankings. Through link building and blog commentating, businesses in need of IT services can find us through the links provided in the comments I write in blogs. Basically, I try to find blogs or websites that are high ranking in certain keywords and then I will comment and link that comment back to our blog. This helps us get a higher Google page ranking and get more clients. I also use Google analytics and other sites to determine how are link building is doing. Google analytics helps our business determine who is clicking our links through social media, blogs and much more. It helps us analyze how effective we are in promoting our blog. In addition, I also help my supervisor work on a new blog. My task is to research different topics in technology and write a paragraph or two about it. Then we use SEO to promote our blog so more people know about Black Diamond Solutions.

It gives me discipline and focus that helps me boosts my self-confidence. This will give me an opportunity to really show how hard working and dedicated of a person I can be. Through this internship it gives me skills for future jobs. To conclude, this opportunity will help me get recommendation from my supervisor to help me in future job interviews and it looks good for my resume.
