Recent Activity  -


Recently retired from GE Aviation (1 Aug) What a great place to work as a second carreer. I would also like everyone to know that GE is not only vet friendly but we actively recruit and are looking for military veterans in our various divisions. Check out GE for more. As aviation recovers there will be a a great opportunity for many.
