REAL ROLE MODEL


Laura Hamill
Content Executive
musicMagpie
WHAT DO YOU DO?

I create content for musicMagpie and our US brand Decluttr through blog posts, research pieces, social media, emails and website copy.

WHAT SKILLS DO YOU USE MOST IN YOUR JOB?
  • Creativity
  • Team Work
  • Editing
WHAT'S THE MOST INTERESTING THING YOU'VE WORKED ON IN YOUR CAREER SO FAR?

I used to work in international events, which meant I travelled a few times a year to places like Poland and China. I covered live content and interviewed key people in the industry.

WHAT'S YOUR EDUCATIONAL BACKGROUND?

I studied French, Religious Studies and English Literature at A Level. I studied English and Journalism at De Montfort University.

WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO GO INTO DIGITAL & TECH?

Things have changed a lot since I graduated - I had wanted to work in print but as that landscape became more challenging, I wanted to cover all bases professionally. Digital is bursting with opportunities to learn and grow.

WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO GIRLS THINKING ABOUT A CAREER IN DIGITAL AND TECH?

It’s not as technical or analytical as you think! There’s space for creativity and it’s fast paced so you’re always learning something new. I think it’s important to see what’s out there – when I was studying, working in social media seemed like a far-fetched concept but it’s common place now.
