Gilbert Atanasoff is the Commercial Programs Leader, Global GoldSeal, and GE Healthcare
The College of Business, Economics, and Computing arranged to have information technology hiring managers on site from several companies in the area. Through that process, I was able to interview with many different organizations in the same day, including Harley-Davidson Motor Company. The College of Business, Economics, and Computing directly helped me get my first job out of college, with Harley-Davidson, where I spent the next 7.5 years in their Information Services (IS) department.
