Describe Lockheed Martin in three words: Innovative,
Do you have any advice for students who might want
to work there one day? For those students that would
like to work at Lockheed Martin someday, I would
advise them to get the best out of their education.
Not only is a GPA important, but being involved in
university organizations and community outreach
is also important. I would encourage students to be
extremely active at their university because this will
enrich their resume as well as overall college experience.
The knowledge, connections, and experience gained by
being involved in student organizations is invaluable
to a student's overall college experience. Lockheed
Martin values an employee who demonstrates not only
a desire to excel in their education, but also those who
demonstrate leadership experience.
Additonally, I would advise students to get to know
Lockheed Martin representatives during on-campus
recruiting events. Those students who proactively seek
to talk to Lockheed Martin recruiters demonstrate their
desire to work at Lockheed.
