Once upon a time…

by derekdesroches

Hello, and welcome to my blog! My name is Derek, and this blog is a way for me to share my journeys since I have recently entered the working world. I am a graduate from Algonquin College in Ottawa, Ontario where I studied both public relations and event management. Through both programs I had great professors, learned a lot and met some amazing friends.  

As a new member of the workforce I am enjoying myself quite a bit. It is really true that you never stop learning, every day is a new adventure. I work with a great group of people and love facing the challenges of a new day. Right now I am on a six month contract with the communications department of a university. I am responsible for their online communications and social media, the position was also just created so it is great helping to shape the position.   

A few things I plan to blog about:  

  • PR/Communications 
  • Lessons I learn from work/professional advice 
  • Violin – my 2013 New Year’s Resolution 
  • Style – whether it be for the office of life in general 
  • Finally, things I just want to share that make me happy!   

Well I believe I am going to cut this post short and leave you all hanging for more. Stay tuned for lots of great posts to come!
