Our Graduates

Thermo Fisher Scientific

James Story“As a member of the Thermo Fisher Scientific IT Leadership Development Program, I am assigned to four six-month job rotations under our IT leaders. In each assignment, I am responsible for leading key aspects of some of the most significant IT projects taking place in the company. For example, I recently focused on developing global infrastructure services for the Global IT Service Desk. Each rotation exposes me to various roles and responsibilities within the function and supports my fast-track development into a leadership position at the end of the program. The ITLDP program is helping me get an intensive introduction to the IT department here at Thermo Fisher, allowing me to work directly with IT leaders, and developing my personal leadership skills.”


Taylor Story

“I came to Thermo Fisher having just graduated from the University from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I began the Product Development Leadership Program (PDLP). The program helped me smoothly transition from academia into a business environment, and I gained a lot of technical knowledge from the start as my manager pushed me to try new things right away. I worked outside of my department and was able to see how the technical innovations I was helping to make were translated directly into value for our customers. The PDLP teamed me with a mentor, a Senior Mechanical Engineer. This mentorship program advanced my career and allowed me to develop business acumen and leadership skills. Through these mentorships, I was able to move into a new position in manufacturing. Now, as a manufacturing engineer I am helping to make sure customers are getting exactly what they ordered in an efficient and reliable way.”
