A Georgia Bulldog in Utah

~~~ Guest Post by Greg T ~~~

Hi, my name is Greg Thompson and I am the Director of Professional Services in at EMC Corporation. I relocated to West Jordan, UT from Hartwell, GA with my wife Cathy about a year ago.

As you hopefully know, EMC has a large presence in Utah and my previous role gave me an opportunity to visit several times over the years. I’d always had it in mind that I would jump at the chance to live here, and thankfully I got that chance!

In the short time I’ve been in Utah, I’ve been super impressed with EMC’s community involvement, especially in our relationships with local universities. I really wanted to join in and get involved. Since I’ve been here, I’ve been invited to speak at the University of Utah, guest lecture at Utah Valley University, and attend recruiting events at both. I've also given Tech Talks and done recruiting at Neumont University.

I’ve been fortunate enough to work with great EMC recruiters, including Cary Demello. He has established productive relationships with our area universities. It’s been due to Cary’s efforts that we have been able to hire numerous graduates with 4-year and advanced degrees.
Greg & Cary
Out of my team of roughly 50 here in Utah, approximately 25% have Masters degrees, or are currently enrolled in Masters programs. I look forward to continuing the work I’ve been doing at the universities I’ve mentioned, and starting relationships with the other universities in the area.
