Creating Opportunity Across the Career Spectrum
Apprenticeships: Work, Earn, Learn
At Lockheed Martin, we are looking for people who aspire to do great things with their career. We also recognize that many people need additional training and experience to succeed in a job. Lockheed Martin is committed to building talent through apprenticeships that allow employees to get the qualifications and experience they need to succeed in a job while being paid.
Inspiring and Hiring Students
The aerospace and defense industry faces increased competition to attract and retain new talent, which is why Lockheed Martin is partnering with local schools and organizations like Project Lead The Way to create high school and college internships that inspire students to stay on the path to rewarding careers in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM.)
Bringing New Skills to the Workforce
Lockheed Martin is partnering with academia and state and federal governments to address the shortage of skilled workers in today’s advanced manufacturing environment. We’ve committed to developing curriculum and supporting scholarships for veterans, unskilled or displaced workers to gain the skills-based training they need to obtain jobs in the industry.
