Profile Activity

Three years’ experience in the online/digital media industry with companies such as http://www.babelgum.com and The National Centre for Technology in Education (NCTE) in partnership with Microsoft Ireland. I am currently job seeking in Ireland and in the United Kingdom.

I have a BA Degree in Creative Multimedia with Communications from Dundalk Institute of Technology graduating in 2007. I am also trained in advanced web design which strengthens my x-html, CSS and Dreamweaver skills. I have solid experience using Adobe CS3 Suite -Photoshop, InDesign, and Illustrator.

My most recent position was gained whilst living in New York. I was employed by a construction company to manage their office. Here I developed my organisational skills and learned a lot about an area that I was quite unfamiliar with. This was a great experience for me and added quite a few extra skills to my resume.

In the past I have work for the National Centre for Technology in Education (NCTE) where I gained invaluable experience as Digital Content Engineer. The position was very hands on with the development of new content for the NCTEs websites (ncte.ie; imagebank.ie; webwise.ie) and working with existing content for webwise.ie. It tied in nicely with my last role with the internet video streaming website Babelgum where I work as a Video Content Specialist.

The role of a Video Content Specialist was very specific to video publishing for the web and metadata creation. In both roles I have gained experience in video editing, video publishing, metadata creation and keywords. And now I have thorough understanding of Content Management Systems. I hope to continue with my career in the area and I am very keen on my continuous professional development. I regularly attend courses in which I feel will benefit my vocation.

I am contactable via linkedIn and gmail.com- marfar07@gmail.com for any employment queries.
