University Career Services was awarded the prestigious GE Career Services Award in recognition of their dedication and support of GE recruiting.
GE is the second largest recruiter at UNC’s business school and is a member of the UNC University Career Services Employer Advisory Board. The company supports the University in several initiatives, most notably as the primary sponsor of the Kenan-Flagler Undergraduate Business Symposium for the past three years. Other initiatives include coordinating student visits to GE businesses in India, China, and South Africa for GLIMPSE and Entrepreneurship program participants as well as supporting STAR consulting projects for undergraduate and MBA students.
“Actively identifying and developing the next generation of leaders is core to a company's success and central to the way GE operates,” said Brian Worrell, GE’s executive sponsor for UNC and a Vice President of GE responsible for Global Financial Planning and Analysis.
“GE has been recruiting at UNC for three decades. Over the past two years we have increased our presence on campus and expanded our focus beyond students interested in a finance career. We are excited to see such talented students who have demonstrated academic achievement and broad leadership capabilities at such a great University.”
Worrell, a 1992 graduate of UNC, praised the support and leadership from the University Career Services Team. “Ray Angle and his team have been instrumental in helping us increase the number of students we recruit from UNC. The team is a valuable resource for the students at Carolina and companies hoping to hire them.”
O. Ray Angle, director of University Career Services, said that it is an honor to accept the award on behalf of the University Career Services team. “GE is well-known as leader in the global marketplace and we are grateful that they return to UNC each year to recruit our students,” Angle said. “Their commitment to innovation and to solving real world challenges resonates with our students and the UNC community.”
