Lockheed has fascinated me since I started researching the company. One of the most significant accomplishments of my professional career would be to somehow land an interview with Lockheed. Can someone that works in Lockheed provide me your contact information so that I could possibly pick your brain? Ideally I would like to know what some of you that are currently at Lockheed did to obtain your position within the company, what you do there, and where you see your position taking you a couple of years from now. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!!

A little bit about me: I'm a 3rd year Aerospace Engineering student at University of Michigan. I am currently interning at General Dynamics, and I love it here. Aviation and Space systems are my passion so I am just seeing how far I can get with this. Again, thanks for taking the time to read this!

I'm an intern working for Lockheed Martin Mission Services in Houston, TX. I work on the Orion Project on the Crew Exploration Vehicle as a Network Engineer.

I was introduced to my current manager by a friend who is a level 4 (out of 9) employee. She (my manager) called me for a short phone interview and after about 2 months I heard back from HR that they were drafting an offer for me. What actually happened was that HR rejected my resume, stating that they wanted an engineer for the position (I'm a business major), but the manager I interviewed with went and argued with HR and eventually got them to go ahead with me.

So far I've been with Lockheed for about 8 weeks but it has been incredible, it is a great work environment. It seems like every week I receive an email asking me to look into Lockheed's Leadership Development Programs (career fast tracks). There are excellent opportunities to move up in this company.

Here is what I recommend you do: go to the Lockheed website, find where it says "Careers", locate the job search application, search for jobs that are either intern/co-op (if you will still be a student in the fall of 09') or a College position (graduating in Spring 09'). When you find one that sounds like a match, write down the Req ID and send that as well as a copy of your resume to perry.e.kreusser@lmco.com and I'll put your resume through the employee recommendation process. Also if you have any other questions, feel free to email me.

Best,

Perry

I landed an interview but haven't heard back from them. I was supposed to hear today according to the person I interviewed with. My friend said they will just send a written offer via Fed Ex, but I think this department would call first (smaller division/office work position). It's 2PM here and no call.. he did mention he would have to fight HR since I have 2 years of college but no associate's degree which is what the job description said. He admitted that was stupid and saw I had the experience to do the job. Maybe another candidate had what they needed so he wouldn't have to fight HR... Who knows.

Hey NewCollegeGrad,
I hate to admit it but much like everyone else, I have a friend who works there, and he had access to the internal database. He pulled the job req# and got me the hiring manager's email address. I emailed him directly, and he called me for an interview.

The bad news? I just found out today LM has decided to ELIMINATE the very position I applied for! They are moving their office, and told him they have decided to just remove the need for that position altogether. He said he was going to try and get it reinstated and call me at that time, but who knows how long that will take.. So back to square one..:(

Perry im trying to get into LM too but in the DC metro area. Is it alright for me to do what you say as above or are you only looking for people in the Texas area? Im former Navy, 8 years Information Technology or system administrator experience with a TS/SCI and CCNA.

Thanks!

I have been with Lockheed for about a year now. This is a great place to work. I applied for the job only once and had a single interview about 2 weeks later. I waited about 4 weeks before hearing back about the job. The trick with Lockheed is the same as with the government, tailor your resume to the specific job posting including all of the keywords. Just don't rely on one standard resume.
As for Perry, while he is being helpful he is making money off of every resume that he submits when the people are actually hired. Up to $1500 each for a successful recommendation. if you are looking for an engineering job look at Lockheed in Huntsville AL. The LM Space Systems company is needing at least 40 engineers ASAP.

Space Systems for Lockheed would be HEAVEN. I will be getting my bachelors in aerospace engineering from university of michigan(2010), and i will most likely be getting a masters degree in Space Systems Engineering from university of michigan(2011) as well. Do you know if they are hiring interns possibly? I think that I could be very valuable somewhere down the line when i get my masters, and maybe it would be worth it for them to give me an internship! haha. What do you think?

There are currently intern positions open. You don't need a Masters to be valuable, but it will help with advancement. If you apply and are chosen for an intern position, consider transfering to the University of Alabama in Huntsville.
They have very strong engineering and aerospace programs. Plus they are directly across the street from us.

NewCollegeGrad Relocating To Maryland in Houston, Texas

72 months ago

Hello everyone, I had a recruiter contact me from LM about 2 weeks ago and said she was submitting my application to the hiring manager. I contacted her last week and she said she hadn't heard anything yet but they did have an interview set up with a candidate who submitted their application prior to mine.(First off does that mean oh we are not interested anymore or we are going to interview this person if they don't fit we will contact you?) Now I went back on the website to check the status of the job, and the job status date has changed, but its still open. Does that mean they have reposted the job, or have they filled the position. Also wouldn't it say closed if it had been filled?

If the job had been filled the posting would be removed. LM typically interviews multiple candidates for a job prior to making a decision. There were 6 others, both internal and external, interviewed for the job that I have now. Don't give up and good luck.

Hey all, I recently received some great resume advice from a career counselor at my school (from which I have graduated). I uploaded my new resume onto monster Thursday night, then Friday morning I received an email from someone at Lockheed Martin asking if I was interested in working for them (and also relocating to the Washington D.C. area). I replied yes and within a few hours received a call on my cell phone to set up an interview (much to my surprise). She went over a few things like citizenship requirements and background checks, etc, and said she'd email me about how to set up flight and hotel arrangements on their dime. By the end of the day Friday, I had everything all set up. Anyone else have this experience? They've only seen my resume on Monster, that's it....and they're already paying for me to come down there? I'm not going to look a gift-horse in the mouth so-to-speak, but I'm also not going to be naive about it either.

It seems almost too good to be true. On the Monday I'm being interviewed there's at least 2 sessions, one at 8:30 and another at 11 or 12. I guess there's going to be many people there with me, could this be a good sign or a bad sign? The lady I spoke with said that 'you' interview for more than one job at once, or all jobs (not sure of the exact wording she used), there being many that I am interested in based on their website. Please share your experience if you've had one similar, and any advice/suggestions are certainly welcome.

-Dan

P.S. Here are some details about me which might help explain some things: I went to a college in New York (and I hear out-of-state employers love NY graduates), received a BS in Electrical Engineering, a minor in Math, and a minor in Computer Science. My overall GPA was 3.3, EE GPA of 3.2, Dean's list 2002, 2003, and 2004 (all in Fall semesters). I have worked as a line cook for 9 years, training many employees and receiving many raises, so my "soft" skills are quite developed.

are you american? if not its probably because you would fall under those work visas thingys which is something employers want right now. also i think their fiscal year just started so they can afford to fly you out for interviews. make sure they ask you a good salary. sometimes they try to grab college students and give them low wages. ive applied with lockheed since feb and no hits so i couldnt tell you about the process.

Yes I'm American. I actually graduated in May 2007, and 3 months later, in August, I had reconstructive jaw surgery, which required that I wear this halo-type headgear. That lasted for about 6-7 months, finally being removed at the end of January this year. Then after a few months of healing I began my job search, so there's a sort of gray area if I were to say I'm a new college grad.

Did you mean that I should ask for a good salary? Of course, I know it costs a lot more to live there than it does where I live currently. But anyways I just found it strange that just from my resume they want to fly me down there. Lucky for them I'm an honest person and did not embellish anything on my resume.

From your previous email and this one, sounds to me like you will be interviewing for 2 open positions. Most interviews are panel interviews consisting of at least 3 persons. My advice is to be completely honest and up front about your graduation date and your surgery. That way any gray areas will make sense. If you try to hide or manipulate the truth,They will find out anyway during your background search. Any inconguence in information can disqualify you from the job. Good luck.

My son had a friend who had interned with LM in the DC area and his friend recommended him for an internship. When my son set up the interview, they payed for his flight there and his hotel. He said he had a series of interviews throughout the day with many different people. After about two weeks, he got an offer to intern that summer. He just finished his second summer of interning and since this is his last year of college, he was offered a permanent position. The salary was terrific for a student entering the field. (software developer) and he accepted. Sounds like you have a pretty standard interview set up. Good Luck.

I actually recieved a call today from LM requesting an invterview. They will be flying me out to D.C. and pay for the ticket and hotel. They said the interview will be no longer than 3 hours. Any suggestions for those who have experienced this? What can I expect from this long of interview session?

Hi all, I had an interview with Lockheed in Fort Worth. The interview went very well and the manager conducting the interview said that I was the "perfect candidate" for the position. My question is, what happens next? Prior to my interview I filled out an on-line questionaire, which was basically an application, asking for previous addresses and jobs. Are they going to wait to verify everything that was in my questionaire before they call me? If so, how long does that typically take?

Hey Mebmikey,

I have an interview this next Friday for an internship in Washington D.C. If you wouldn't mind sending me an email so I can ask you a few questions, that would be so great!

You should have asked at the end of your interview what are the next steps to employment are. But don't worry send a courtesy email thanking them for the opportunity and ask what the next steps are. Good luck!!

By the way my email is: Ja.bueno@colostate-pueblo.edu

They will do a background check, credit history and so forth prior to calling. It can take a couple of months. I had given up on hearing anything after my interview and 2 months later I got a call with a job offer.

Hi, I'm very interested in getting a internship with Lockheed Martin. I graduate this summer from Florida International University. I'm a Business Managment major. I've been researching the company for a while now, and would like to land an interview with them. I'll be relocating to Atlanta,GA at the end of this semester, and I would like to get an internship this summer. Does anyone know if they offer Summer internships? If so, when do they normally start? I've noticed that people keep saying that they had a employee recommend them in order to get the interview, and that they had the hiring managers direct email. I don't know anyone who works for the company, but I would love to be given an opportunity. If anyone is an existing employee please email me with any information that will help me. I'm looking for an internship at the location they have right outside Atlanta,GA.

Believe it or not, the best way to get an interview with Lockheed Martin is to apply for a position through their website. You can and should apply to multiple positions that way you are exposed to multiple managers which give your better chance. I interview with three different managers for three different positions and get offer for all of them. Eggy is totally right about Lockheed Martin could call back and give offer on the same day of the interview. But that only happen for one of my three interviews. However, I get all my offers with in a week so waiting 2 months for an offer is an exception I think. I get to picked which team I want to work with and that’s how I started with them.

Lockheed Martin interview are generally easy for a Software Engineer. They ask many behavioral questions to check your ethic since ethic is a huge part of the company. They also want to know if you work well in team. Read my Lockheed Martin interview
www.jobnfo.com/content/my-interview-with-lockheed-martin

and also read my experience with Lockheed Martin so far if you are interested.

My advise to you is to be persistent, if you have an interview give it a few days after and call back for a follow up if they dont call you. You can also talk to our recruiters online via the main LM website under Careers /Job Search.

BTW The most famous and legendary Lockheed Engineer (the person responsible for all the amazing aircrafts like the SR 71) attended University of Michigan, His name was Clarence L Kelly Johnson learn about him it will help you :)

Good luck!!

Got an interview last fall at LM for a temp position, with an opportunity once in place to be considered along with the permanent candidate pool, but alas I wasn't even hired in the temporary capacity. Didn't give up though and kept applying, and finally got a call yesterday to come in and interview later this week for a permanent position! They emailed me the link to the online "questionnaire" and the release form authorizing the credit check with instructions to fax it back prior to the interview. Fingers crossed!

ArtVandelay in Los Angeles, California, Good luck on your interview. LM values honesty and intergrity. Be open and up front in your interview. Ask for the opportunity to prove your ability and value. While inside help is always a good thing with LM. It is possible to get an interview and get hired without any inside connection. I did. Just be the best fit for the job that you are applying for.

I recently graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering and have applied for a few of the entry level jobs related to my major in the Florida area. I am open to relocating to other areas and noticed the REQ ID is the same regardless of the location. Is it a good assumption that hiring managers in the other states might view my resume or do I need to apply to the other states individually?

If you are open to relocating you stand a better chance of getting an interview

J M6 in Alabama, Apply to each job individually. While it is true your resume is in a central database, Each job req is different and requirements may be different from one business unit to another.

Good advice but the only discharge which is a guaranteed career killer is a (capital D) Dishonorable. You can still get a security clearance with a General or OTH discharge.

I am in a similar position as the OP. I graduated with a Finance degree about 6 months ago. I have been working with a city government entity as an intern for the last 2 years. Seeing that the internship will officially come to an end at the end of this summer (2011), I obviously began pressing for new employment about a month ago.

After viewing the LM careers website, I found a TON of entry-level positions that are almost exactly the kind of position I'm working in now, with the exception of it being a permanent full-time position. I have applied to several of the same position (multiple locations).

I am very excited about a career with LM and would love to be able to network with any current LM employees. I'm also willing to relocate pretty much anywhere, so I'm hoping that will help my chances.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Derik, I'm not real familiar with the LA area but you should try to make contact with one of the local LM programs to introduce yourself. Keep in mind that hiring is very competetive right now, and that there are a lot of displaced workers looking for jobs that you're competing against.

LOL it's who you know at the company.. your resume get lost in the system.. so you need to jazz it up and make it pretty. It helps who you know that can get your resume in front of hiring managers.
