Name: Frew Murdoch
Designation: Assistant Editor: HR Pulse
What do you do every day? I write, do the online publishing for HR Pulse, sub, edit and proof, publish press releases, meet clients and co-run the SEO and keyword strategy for our website. I set up the newsletter and love playing with HTML code. When I publish, I use a Joomla backend for events, modules, press offices etc.
How did you get into the tech space? With a lot of luck. I had a profile on Bizcommunity and no experience, but the previous editor of HR Pulse found me and ‘threw me in the deep end’. I was fortunate enough to be able to swim and went from intern to assistant editor in three months.
What was the best advice anyone ever gave you? Rise above!
What advice would you given someone wanting to get into the tech sector? Hit the ground running, so to speak. It takes hard work and great character to make it in this sector. Don’t give up – be determined to grow personally and professionally.
What motivates you to get out of bed everyday? Each day is a new chance to prove myself.
Who do you want to be when you grow up? An editor – a great one!
