1st... I see that there are several people questioning why LM has not contacted them after applying for a position. I was surprised that LM did not contact me as well; however, after ~ a month I was contacted by LM. I am not aware of a way to catalyze 'the process'... I think that the best way is to continue applying for (new) positions.
OK, the reason that I am writing this post... While unemployed (laid off) I received 5 job offers including 1 from LM to start working in Baltimore, MD, which was the best offer (~ $10k more annually). The recruiter told me that the start date would be in 1 to 2 months, which I was OK with. However, the position was on a contract that was awarded & funded to LM and I was lead to believe that the position was awarded & funded as well. However, after waiting 2 months (in the middle of the holidays) LM informed me that the position was no longer available. I applied for several (new) positions and asked the recruiter to help me find employment at LM but I have not been contacted by anyone at LM since (~ a month ago). Everyone that I talk to is shocked that a company as 'reputable' as LM would do this... so I wanted to let others know / learn from my lesson. I would accept an offer from LM in the future, but only if the start date was within ~ 2 weeks.

My name is Chris. I am a highly skilled and motivated graduate student in aerospace engineering at Georgia Tech looking for an internship (with the intent of post-graduation employment; I want a career with LM, not just an internship). I have, from day one, always wanted to work specifically for Lockheed Martin. My skills are mainly in thermal-fluids analysis, mechanical design, and systems engineering.
I have applied to 24 positions online that I believe I am highly qualified for (and I will probably apply to several more; I really want to work there!) I have also attended every Lockheed Martin information session and recruiting/career event that has occurred since I moved here for grad school. I have handed out as many resumes as I could to every Lockheed Martin person I have ever had face-to-face contact with. I had an on-campus "career discussion" with one of the recruiting folks, (which I believe went quite well) and I have contacted five people, including Jerry Kirby, the recruiter at the Marietta facility, about Lockheed Martin and getting my foot in the door.
I have yet to hear anything whatsoever from anyone. No emails, no nothing. I strongly believe I am a good candidate for an internship position with Lockheed Martin, and I am EXTREMELY motivated. Lockheed Martin is my dream company, no competition. Is there anything whatsoever that I can do to further increase my chances or get my name past the online system? I want a career with Lockheed Martin so badly but I must admit it is somewhat demoralizing to hear absolutely nothing back from anybody. Does anyone have insight as to the hiring process for interns? Is there any way to find the contact info of the manager that posted a position?
I appreciate any time and consideration given to my questions.

Before I posted this, I've done several applications through Lockheed Martin website. Recently this year, my point of interest is getting broad because my supervisor told me earlier that Lockheed Martin would be a better opportunity for me. Thus, I'm trying to apply for job at LM now.
My major is master in electrical engineering, specific in digital design, wireless tech and communication. My point of interest of engineering is to get better knowledge in depth about how I would apply my knowledge into practical life.
I really want to work at LM. I applied maybe around 17 applications for electrical or system engineering because I have diverse background with computer engineering and hands on trouble shooting.
Well, before I read several comments about getting job or even interview at LM is really difficult, I was wondering about my chance to get interviewed or even accepted as part of engineering team. Do I still have that ? I heard also that you should at least graduated with 4.0 GPA from Florida Tech, well I'm Florida Tech student however my GPA now is 3.8. Am I still eligible to apply for LM Electrical Engineering job ?
Indeed, I'm pretty confident about my skills however how hiring managers know about my skills if it's just basically from resume and papers. I believe there are plenty of people who compete and have same expectation to work with LM.
If anyone works with LM whoever who can help and guide me to get a electrical engineering position, even entry level / associate I will be really appreciate that. I'm just kind a wondering, not to let myself down but I really want to know how I should prepare to get accepted with LM

I applied for a job on the Lockheed Martin website and until today the Job Status stated "open". Today the Job Status changed to "cancelled". What does this mean?

Okay I am a Recent Graduate and I have been trying to secure a position with Lockheed Martin since I completed my undergraduate degree. I have a undegraduate degree in Marketing and a MBA. I have taken countless business classes and have experience in the business world. I have been applying to lockheed and tailoring my resume as suggested but still NOTHING...
I am becoming really discouraged and any advice or help even to just look at my resume would be really appreciated.

Recently applied for a Communications Systems Engineer position with LM. I have respected this company as long as I can remember, and the job description fit my skill set to a tee. I am wondering if there is a way to contact the hiring manager directly (Spokane, Fairchild) so I can provide more information than the sterile online application form. I know I can wow them, just need a foot in the door!

I was wondering if there is any general phone number I can call to find out the status of my application. I had an interview on December 20th and they said they'd get back to everyone with a month. I haven't heard anything yet and the positions that I applied for on lockheedmartinjobs still say "open." I tried emailing the people who set up the interview session but no one has responded and I have no phone numbers for any of them. At this point I would just like to know whether or not I am still being considered or if they've already picked their candidates. I felt pretty confident coming out of the interviews and since the positions are still listed as open I am still hopeful but I would just like to be certain.

This is my first time posting any questions about getting hired, particularly with Lockheed Martin. I will be separating from the Air Force in the next couple of months and I'm trying to survey my options to transition to the Civilian world. I'm thinking about applying mainly for the Ft Worth area positions, particularly in the Logistics and Program Planning fields. I've been in the service for 5+ yrs as an Air Transportation Crafstman (2T271). I was wondering if anybody here can provide me with information or recommendations as to when to apply, what to expect, and how can I translate my skills to the previously mentioned fields. Best of regards to everybody. Thanks.

I recently got a job offer in a site in New York and am super excited about it. I think it will be a great place to start my career and I know I've always wanted to work for Lockheed. In the long run though, I know that New York is not the place where I would like to settle down and I know after a year or two of working on this site I will want to move somewhere warm like to the West Coast. Is it common for Lockheed employees to relocate to another Lockheed site? Or is this frowned upon?
I appreciate your responses and thank you in advance.
