Where it goes from there who knows, but I'd give it a try for what it's worth.
Let me know if you are interested.

I am a Portuguese mechanical engineering with 24 years old, actually performing a diploma course on Von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics in Brussels. At the moment I have in hands a PhD in TU Delft (Netherlands) but I'm tempted in applying to Northrop Grumman or Lockheed. As you might see is a big step on my life and I need some opinions...
1 - Foreign people are easily accepted on defense contractors like Northrop Grummanor Lockheed? I mean, they take more in account your personal profile, skills and qualifications than your nationality?
2 - PhD needs high wages to be maintained in a enterprise. For what you have seen there, which kind of personnel this company is looking for?
People who got there skills by experience on other companies?
Or people who have a good background and wants to start and grow on this company?
This might vary on the area or in the job assignment but I'm thinking in applying to military and space missions.
3 - If I apply they will cover all my expenses? I heard that LA is expensive but it should be visit at least once in life.
I will be grateful for a opinion. Thanks in advance
