Girl Scouts Discuss Careers at 3 GE Locations in Fairfield County
April 22, 2013
More than 50 Girl Scouts visited three GE Corporate locations in Danbury, Norwalk, and Stamford, to learn about the types of careers available at the company and about other key career-building skills.
On Monday, April 15, Girls heard from and spoke with more than 25 GE employees at all three sites about the areas of finance, HR, IT, and marketing. Girls interviewed the employees about their job responsibilities and what the employees enjoyed most about their jobs. In addition, girls participated in a variety of interactive activities including creating a company and how to reconcile a checking account.
The day’s events are a small part of the Girl Scout Leadership Experience, the organization’s national program portfolio that prepares girls to become active leaders in their workplace and communities. Specifically, the Girl Scout Leadership Experience helps a girl discover herself and her values, connect with others to build healthy relationships, and take action to make the world a better place.
