Holly Hinson is famous in our offices for wearing the most amazing tartan Doc Martin boots, for such a young person she has some style.  Let’s find out a bit more of this very talented lady who seems to have a wise head on young shoulders…

So, Holly, how did you get into the IT industry?

My time at Perfect Image has been my first real experience of the IT industry. However, throughout my studies, I used various bits of software to perform analysis and create visualisations, and I really enjoyed the challenges these presented, so decided this was the industry I wanted to be in.

What is your favourite thing about working at Perfect Image?

I enjoy how varied the work is, as it gives insight into lots of different areas of business. The work is interesting and presents lots of different challenges that require perseverance, and I love being able to accomplish these difficult tasks.

What do you love about your colleagues?

Everyone at PI is friendly and approachable. They are also engaged with what they’re doing, and all seem to strive to be the best they can be in the subject area.

How do you think your colleagues would describe you?

Probably quiet but driven.

What do you think sets Perfect Image apart from other IT solutions providers?

PI seems to be completely focused on what is best for the client, rather than just about profit, which is really refreshing. They also encourage their employees to spend time to make sure they are always at the top of their game, and I really think this gives PI the edge.

What are your least favourite technology products, and why?

Facebook – because, whilst it’s easy to waste a lot of time on social media generally, Facebook concerns me because it’s only ever going to show you a biased view of the world given how much they target content, and I think it’s important to be open minded to seeing other points of view. With all the news about how much data they collect about you and what’s done with it, it also highlights how vulnerable you make yourself by being on these sites.

What piece of tech could you not live without?

My phone – easily.

What do you think technology will look like in ten year’s time?

I think technology will probably be even more integrated into everyday life.

What technology-related blogs, podcasts, twitter accounts or websites do you follow?

I tend to follow tech news through news sites and LinkedIn, but any recommendations are welcome!

What do you get up to when you’re not at work?

In my free time I attend and help run gigs, I take dance classes and try to spend time being creative – whether it be drawing, sewing or playing guitar.
