Student Networking Cafe

Tomorrow I have the pleasure of attending the Student Networking Cafe. It is an opportunity for college and university students studying communications to attend a free information session to discuss options for students with the COO (Communications Community Office). It will be held at Ottawa University.

The COO is supported by heads of communications within 37 departments and agencies in the government. This makes it a great opportunity for students like myself who are working for the government, but not in a communications capacity, the ability to network in our field.

But probably the best part is that I get to go to this event, instead of taking my regular shift the government and get paid for doing so. Not too shabby. I'm definitely looking forward to it.

Hello Femi,

My name is Lekan and I just found your blog while doing research for a project. I find it very insightful being someone that is taking a few PR course right now then before starting my Journalism Undergraduate studies in Sept, 09. I was wondering if you could do me a favor and answer a few questions for me for my project. The company that I was supposed to meet with to do it screwed me over and now I am in a bind to get it done tonight and email it to my Prof by tomorrow morning. Here's my email address of which you can respond to, so that I can send you the questions. They are not too long and are basically about finding out the challenges that a PR practitioner faces when dealing specifically with Reputation Management. Here's my email:

No worries if you can help but if you can, send me an email and I will respond with the questions.

Best regards,
