About GE

General Electric Company (GE) is a global conglomerate based in Fairfield, Connecticut. Though the company designs an extensive range of products through numerous subsidiaries, GE categorizes its business into four segments: Building, Curing, Moving, and Powering.

Products & Services

The company’s portfolio comprises a variety of consumer and commercial products. GE manufactures numerous appliances, like dishwashers and microwaves, for business clients as well as individual customers. Both of these customer groups can also access lighting products, from High Intensity Discharge Lamps to decorative holiday lights. GE transportation-related items include locomotives, aircraft engines, marine power, and railway communications technology. Additionally, the company produces intelligence systems, computing platforms, and software. GE’s power and energy technology includes oil and gas solutions, steam turbines, mining equipment, generators, and power plants. Healthcare, finance, and industrial services are also available.

History

GE was founded in 1982 through a merger between the Edison General Electric Company and the Thomson-Houston Company. The newly formed GE began performing scientific research and manufacturing new products, including electric fans, toasters, and refrigerators. Nearly 80 years after its inception, the company had expanded its capabilities to include aircraft construction, nuclear energy, and laser technology. GE continued to market both consumer appliances and advanced technological devices, making numerous acquisitions throughout the 20th century and into the 2000s. The company has since increased its production of healthcare technology, such as the VCT scanning system, and energy-efficient transportation technology, such as the hybrid locomotive.

Job Opportunities

GE is a publicly traded entity with global career opportunities. The company offers employment in any of its business units, such as healthcare or aviation. Careers in these departments range from engineering and Information Technology (IT) positions to marketing jobs. Military veterans are encouraged to apply. GE also provides internships, co-ops, and leadership programs for current students and recent graduates.
