Hi! I’m Maurice Williams, a 2009 graduate with a degree Computer Science from WPI . My post-college plans are to work with GE Capital (commercial finance) out of Danbury, CT as an IMLP.
I stumbled (or googled) across the IMLP blog as well as other fellow IMLP’s and GE employees on Twitter while doing some background research on the program. This helped me get a feel for what to expect from working at a large and diverse company like GE.
Unlike most IMLP’s, I will not have to relocate until my second rotation; this is because I am currently living in Norwalk, CT which is about 22 miles south the GE’s Danbury office.
The time is drawing short, and my first day of orientation is getting near. As the days pass by, a storm of mixed emotions is taking place inside of me.
On one hand, I’m a little sad to be done with school and been able to spend as much time with my friends as we used to, but on the other I’m excited to venture on to a new journey while growing and achieve my goals and as watching my friends achieve theirs.
I am also looking forward to making new friends during bootcamp and contributing the other side-projects while on my rotations.
There is no doubt that this is a very exciting yet uncertain point of every recent college graduate’s life, but as I move on and welcome everything the future has instored for me, I keep the following quote in mind: “Knowledge is an unending adventure at the edge of uncertainty.”
