About Me

  • Use the "About Me" statement to talk about your current role and responsibilities.
  • Write in the first person (I/me/my/mine).
  • Keep the message brief so that others can consume it quickly. One or two paragraphs is plenty.
  • Because your profile is shared with the entire authenticated acquisition workforce, keep the content professionally focused.
  • For an example of a professional profile, read the profile for Captain Michael Hocker.

Captain Michael Hocker

I joined DAU in November of 2013, and I am currently the Director of Workflow Learning.  Our mission in WLD is to help the workforce succeed by connecting them to highly relevent content and other acquisition professionals.  I believe that Workflow Learning provides DAU Faculty and Staff with a high impact way to extend our reach beyond the classroom.  I welcome innovation, collaboration and diversity of thought.
