Why should you join the IAP?
Experience diverse aspects of business with real responsibility
Tom Johnstone
Laura Scerbo
Chief Risk Officer, Corporate Lending
In-Charge Investment Analyst
“The IA team is one of the most
powerful early-career
leadership roles within GE. In
this role the IAs directly interact
with the finance leadership at
our customers, as well as senior
underwriters in Corporate
Lending. This experience
builds self confidence, clear
thinking and superior
analytical skills that can
accelerate your career within
“As a recent college graduate
the IAP has been a great
learning experience for me.
Being an IA you are constantly
working with a variety of people.
My communication and
analytical skills continuously
improve, via both on the job
experiences as well as in-class
training. In my opinion there
are few other entry level
positions that give you as much
responsibility as GE’s IAP.”
