Lockheed Martin Coming to Interview Public Relations Seniors and Grad Students

Lockheed Martin has begun this year’s recruiting process for the Communications Leadership Development Program (CLDP). Each year we find students at the University of Georgia Grady College of Journalism and Mass Communications in Public Relations with outstanding technical skills and leadership abilities.

Lockheed Martin selects students for CLDP from the top Public Relations programs in the country, and we offer those students an opportunity to develop their communication career with the largest defense contractor in the world. The program consists of:

One-year rotations at two Lockheed Martin sites
Competitive pay and benefits
Accelerated career development opportunities
Permanent position upon program completion
Practical experience in media relations, marketing communications, employee communications and community relations

From the Presidential Helicopter to the F-22 Raptor, the Corporation’s vast array of products and services play a critical role in global security. Lockheed Martin is also voted among the top employers of choice every year, earning Business Week’s number two spot in the top 50 “Best Places to Launch a Career.”

Interested graduate and undergraduate students completing their public relations degrees by Spring 2008 should email their resumes to Donna LeBlond no later than 5 p.m. on Friday, Oct. 10.
