The story started
Hey there! 😁🔥 My name is Daniel and I’m a content writer intern at Pearl Lemon.
I’m a huge fan of content creation, food, gardening and gaming. I’m an easy-going person who enjoys chilling with loved ones and having a proper good time.
My favourite game is Red Dead Redemption 2, because it’s such an immersive game!
So far, I’ve been able to work on some pretty interesting projects – from writing for Pearl Lemon’s tattoo shop to writing about the man, THE LEGEND that is Deepak Shukla, who made this all possible. But when I saw my work was published, I felt so validated and that I’m finally doing the right thing. I can’t explain how happy it made me.
My time at Pearl Lemon has been valuable for a number of reasons. First of all, I feel like I’m part of something HUGE.
Whether it’s the sense of community that permeates this company, the friendly and helpful nature of my colleagues, or the fact that each employee is valued, I’ve never felt more proud to be part of a team before.
I love that we are all in this together. No one is left out; everyone is welcome here. When you’re working with your team or talking to your manager, it’s easy to feel like what you do matters, and when you know that what you do matters – that it’s not just some mindless task – it makes everything so much more worth it.
I have learned so much at Pearl Lemon. I have learned how to write and edit copy that is engaging, persuasive, and exciting, but also ranks well for SEO. The most important thing I’ve learned is how vital it is for me to be constantly learning and growing as a writer. I can never stop learning new things about writing or editing or publishing because there are always new challenges ahead of me!
I have learned many lessons while working at Pearl Lemon.
I would say that I’ve learned more practical things here than I did in any of my education. I’ve been here less than a month and what I’ve learned in content writing is already more than what I learned in my copywriting course. I’ve learned how to apply keywords to my copy to optimise it for search engine optimisation. I’ve learned how to use Google Suite and especially Google Docs more effectively. I’ve also learned how to make use of more Chrome extensions to streamline my work. Last but not least, I’ve learned how to manage my time better by preparing my necessary documents beforehand so that its easier to write when I need to get to it.
The first lesson is that you must be able to communicate effectively. Communication is key when working in any company; especially at Pearl Lemon where we work remotely with each other – communication is key.
Another lesson that I have learned is that you need to be confident in yourself and your abilities. It can be difficult to be confident if you are new at something or if you are not sure of what you are doing; however, when I am working on a project it helps me stay focused if I know what my role is and what the expectations are for me.
I also learned that it is important for me to be able to work well under pressure because there are often times when things do not go as planned or when there are unexpected surprises; however, this does not mean that things cannot still go smoothly if we are prepared for anything that comes our way!
When I went through the trial (by fire – as Dee puts it), I really had moments where I thought I was going to fail and not make it. But they gave me a chance! For that, I’m truly grateful.
Pearl Lemon is a wonderful company to work for. I have never had to worry about being treated unfairly or having my ideas ignored.
The staff at Pearl Lemon are always friendly, and they are always willing to listen to my ideas. They are also very open and transparent in the way they do business.
I love that Pearl Lemon rewards its employees on performance, not just seniority. This means that I feel like I am valued as an employee and that my contributions matter to the company’s success.
Pearl Lemon is also very inclusive of all kinds of people from around the world. I mean the company won two awards for diversity. They have people from the UK, USA, Asia, Europe, India, Africa, and the Middle-East. So it’s great exposure on the international level.
Finally, Pearl Lemon has flexible work hours so that we can balance our lives outside of work without getting penalized for it – and it doesn’t matter whether your schedule changes week-to-week or month-to-month – everybody hustles to get the work done!
I’ve faced a lot of challenges in my time working for Pearl Lemon.
One of the biggest challenges is getting used to the fast pace at which things move here. It’s not that I’m slow (although I do have ADD) – I’m actually pretty quick on my feet, but there are just so many things happening at once that I have to be careful not to get overwhelmed by them all!
Another challenge is learning how to write content faster. It’s not like writing is something I’m bad at, but when you’re working with such tight deadlines and strict requirements, it can be hard to find enough time to write everything you need without sacrificing quality. But at the end of the day, I’d rather take longer to put out quality work than rush to get it done for the sake of filling a quota. This is another area where communication is important because if you say you’ll do something here, you must do it.
The last challenge is juggling my full-time job with this one. Sometimes I feel like I’m being stretched too thin, and that’s not a good feeling! But the good thing is that it is an opportunity to prove how much I want this and it’ll teach me to be more responsible. On top of that, my colleagues are very supportive and help me along the way. So whenever I feel like I have a problem I can’t solve alone, they are willing to help. I really appreciate that.
At Pearl Lemon, we’re all about teamwork. We’re not the kind of company that will leave you to go at it alone. If you want to be part of a team that is committed to excellence, you need to apply here. If you don’t work well with other people, then you’re going to have problems here.
We also pride ourselves on our fast-paced environment – we’re looking for people who can keep up and don’t need to be coddled (although there is training galore to learn what you need to). We believe in hard work and dedication, so if that’s not your style… well, you probably won’t fit in here.
Finally, we expect our employees to show respect and courtesy toward each other AT ALL TIMES, as well as the customers they interact with on a daily basis. If this doesn’t sound like something you’d be excited about doing every day at work? Then maybe this isn’t the place for you!
Finally, if you lack the will to learn new things or take on new challenges, this isn’t the job for you either. At Pearl Lemon, we want people who are eager to learn new skills, follow through on tasks they’ve been assigned, and be open to taking on new responsibilities when necessary.
I love my job.
I get to learn about a very wide range of topics through my writing. I have never been one to just stick to one thing and go back to it again and again. I like learning new things and trying new things, so this is the perfect place for me.
This is the organisation of opportunity.
You can learn so much here, but there are also opportunities for people who want to grow in their careers by moving up the ladder or taking on more responsibility as they grow older. It’s not just a place where you come in, do your work, and leave – you can stay here for as long as you want and continue growing with us!
So when life gives you lemons one day, I hope that you remember reading this, so that you know where to look next.
