An interview with Margot Freeman, human resources head at GE SeaCo Services, is presented. Freeman tells about gaining a one-year intensive secretarial course which helped her get her first job at the British Ministry of Defence (MoD). She was sponsored by the MoD to take an Open University foundation course in technology which led to two successive promotions. Freeman says that working for 10 years at mining company Rio Tinto was one of her career highlights.
