MY ADVICE TO STUDENTS:
Show you know how to
have a life. Get involved in
activities that demonstrate
who you are as a person.
What's something about Lockheed
Martin that only the people who
work there would know? Lockheed
Martin is the company that
modified the underwater Lotus
vehicle driven by James Bond and
also provided the stunt-double
engineers as its drivers.
Describe Lockheed Martin in three
words: Innovative, competitive,
What is it about your job that makes you get out of bed each
morning? The chance to design and create something that will
ultimately defend the lives of my fellow citizens. Having been a
member of Lockheed Martin for over 3 years, I have seen many
facets of this company and each aspect uniquely contributes to
the success of this organization.
What's your favorite part of your job? My favorite part of this job
is being able to feed my curiosity and get paid to do so. I enjoy
researching many unique and innovative technologies. Working
at Lockheed Martin has allowed me to use the resources of a
large company to investigate new and interesting ideas that will
either fit into our current set of products or allow us to grow in
different markets. Lockheed Martin is not afraid of taking risks,
and that is one of the major reasons that I enjoy working here.
Do you have any accomplishments that you're particularly proud
of? One of my proudest accomplishments so far has been the
filing of my patent. Working with a fellow engineer, I was able to
come up with a novel idea for sensing electromagnetic radiation.
After review by the subject matter experts, the idea was deemed
innovative and LM has since started the paperwork to file with
the patent office.
Do you have any advice for students who might want to work
there one day? Lockheed Martin is a great company that cares
about the welfare of its employees and is dedicated to ethics,
integrity, and delivering the best value to its customers. As
employees grow and evolve, there are a variety of jobs that allow
one to take advantage of their changing interests.
