    Hey guys, I started an apprenticeship in digital marketing today. It's just the work placement (I haven't started the course yet) and I know nothing about digital marketing. I've told my boss that I have no experience etc but he told me that I should teach myself online for the time being. Can anyone help me please? I'm expected to learn SEO (I know what this is but I have no idea how to actually carry out the process if that makes sense), AdWords etc.

    I feel like he is expecting me to be some sort of pro for some reason and It made me feel so stupid today not knowing what to do, as I thought he would teach me himself haha. I might not start the course for another 2 months so how will I be useful to him unless I learn? Thanks.

    How frustrating for you, the point of an apprenticeship is to learn so you shouldn't be expected to be a pro at this stage- have you spoken to your training provider about it?
