Lots of changes are coming around the corner for the Murnan household. After 5 great years, I’ve decided to pursue a new opportunity and will be leaving my day job at GE. It was an incredibly tough decision but believe it is the right one for my career and my family.
Here are a few snapshots of my time with GE (ignore the horrible haircut please!):
I started my career at GE 5 years ago as a part of the Information Management Leadership Program. I still believe there is no better place for an IT professional to start their career out of college!
Back when GE owned NBC, we were able to get a backstage tour of the Saturday Night Live facilities. I was amazed at how small the studio audience area is for SNL!
As part of a GE service project, we did an extreme makeover of a local Milwaukee school’s computer room. Definitely one of the most rewarding (and difficult) things I’ve done!
I spent a month in Shanghai China for training. I had never left the United States before this trip and it definitely broadened my view of the world. During our weekends we scaled the Great Wall and toured historical landmarks.
These are the folks who started with me at GE. I love this shot and it reminds me of everything we’ve been through together. While we’ve all moved on to different things, I’ll always know that I have these rock stars to lean on for advice!
Here’s a #selfie of Laura, Patty, and I at Jive World 2013. I had the honor of presenting our use case to a group of 200+ customers at the event. I’ll be missing all of my Jive buddies at the event this year!
I am so proud of the Creighton connection at GE. Despite being located all over the country (and world), we still stay in touch and help each other out whenever anyone needs it.
GE was my first job out of college and it helped prepare me to be the professional I am today. Thanks to everyone who has made my time special, here’s to the next chapter!
Your turn: have you ever made a career change? What were some of your challenges and what were the things you looked forward to most?
