I have been accepted for a time slot to talk with Lockheed talent acquisition company.
please post on how best to prepare for the event.
what research I should prepare, What questions should I expect, what attire is best for event?
I do not see any public/veteran events for the July 30 date on the Lockheed Martin website. That said, they have been doing "off the board" events esp. in your area of Arlington, TX, which is near the Aeronautics plant in Fort Worth which builds the F-35. They have been hiring at a frenetic pace as production ramps up.
Missiles and Fire Control is right next door in Dallas/Grand Prairie, just south of DFW. It may include that location as well.
About Missiles & Fire Control
I would dress business casual given the record heat in that local. Dress pants and a either a button down or nice polo shirt.
They will ask about your technical experience and your experience (in the military and other) as it relates to teamwork and leadership. You may be asked to describe a situation or task that you were confronted with, what action you took to resolve, and what the result was. I would have a few of those puppies cued up and ready to go.
Hope this info is useful. Good luck. You could ride F-35 into retire should you choose. Great people, great program.
Check out the website for the hiring event to find out which divisions will be attending.
Then go the company website and check out what each of these divisions builds and where they have plant locations around the country. Also you might look up articles on Google about the defense industry in general to learn who their competition is and what contracts they might have won recently.
