About 2 months ago, I was contacted by a project engineer to apply to an internship in Gaithersburg, MD. I applied, and a month later I got a phone interview with the person I would be working for in Gaithersburg. I thought the interview went really well, and by what he was saying, it seemed like I had the job wrapped up. He said that he or a member of HR would be contacting me soon, but it's been a month and I haven't heard anything. I will be hearing back from my backups soon, but I would definitely prefer to work for LM this summer. Anyway, should I just be patient, or should I call HR? I don't want to seem like a pest, but it's pretty important to hear back soon...

Contact the person who you interviewed with.

I emailed him last night. He gave me his cell number as well, would it be appropriate to contact that? Also, is a month wait normal? I'm fine with not getting the job and everything, but an email saying I didn't get it would be nice so I can move on.

Sure, call. That's why they gave you a number.

A month wouldn't be out of the ordinary for a regular position, but it seems awfully long time for an internship, especially this late into the year.

Yeah, that's what I thought. He actually responded friday afternoon, saying that he contacted the team and they should be contacting me shortly. I'm not sure if that sounds positive or negative, but at least they should be getting back to me. Thanks for your help.

Okay, I got an offer from another company yesterday and my deadline to accept is tomorrow. Is there anything I can do to hear back from Lockheed Martin? Should I just give up, considering it's been over a month?

I think you should call the recruiter or the HR representative and ask them about the status of your application at Lockheed Martin.

I don't have the contact information of either of those people. Is there a more general number I can call?

yeah, an offer with a deadline from another company is about the only way to get an expedited response from LM. let your contact know.
