About Derrick


My name is Derrick Wainwright and I am transitioning veteran. I have been in the Navy for 23 years and I will be closing the book on my Naval career in June 2017. I have interests in government policy, human resources, education, and operations management. I plan to pursue a career in Human Resources, but open to other careers that allow me to effectively utilize the skills that I have obtain and honed while serving in the Navy. I am looking for networking and career opportunities in California, specifically the areas of San Diego County, Los Angeles County, Sacramento County, or Fresno County.
