This isn’t something I wanted to write, but it’s come time for me to say goodbye to the team at Rogers; specifically those on the social media side of things.
It doesn’t seem like too long ago that I decided to go to Third Tuesday, around Canada Day, last year. I wasn’t feeling too well, but I sucked it up and went anyway. While there I met with Rob Manne and Keith McArthur who, after a bit of conversation, told me about an internship position coming up. One thing led to another and less than two weeks later I was on the social media team. Shortly after, I posted about joining Rogers and looking back, a lot has changed, but much of what I wrote still holds true:
“Rogers is committed to “taking the leap”, as it were, and joining the online conversations happening about its many, many brand extensions. The department only began seven months ago, with the hiring of Keith McArthur who, along with Rob Manne, are now the well known faces of Rogers on Twitter. That along with other social media projects make me excited about my time here and all of the potential things I may get to do.”
I’ve had the chance to see great projects like Rogers On Demand Online and the Rogers RedBoard take off, as well as attend and help sponsor great events like Hohoto and Podcamp Toronto. Most importantly I’ve learned so much from great coworkers and I couldn’t have asked for a better team to work with.
Wrapping things up I’d like to say thank you to everyone I’ve had the pleasure of working with at Rogers. Nowadays it’s easy to keep in touch, so that shouldn’t be a big deal, but I will miss the day-to-day cackling and random other good times. I also want to wish the team good luck with the projects you’re working on and the many more coming in the future.
