Case studies: Internship, Lockheed Martin

I first saw Lockheed Martin’s placement programme in an advert at my university's placement office. It appealed to me immediately as the job description matched my career aspirations in project/programme management.

The placement was a year long scheme and I was put straight into the role I applied for. From day one I felt part of the team and had a project assigned to me which gave me responsibility and measured targets throughout the 12 months I was there.

Having never worked in an office environment, I was quite daunted by the prospect, and working up to 40 hours each week was initially quite difficult. But the team were really welcoming and made my year a great experience, providing support and guidance whenever I needed it.

My year out of university has given me the push to go for a First. I have learnt so much and I am even more determined to succeed now, when previously I would have been happy with a 2:1.After a year in a real role, I am even more convinced that project/programme management is my career goal. I have been offered a job with Lockheed Martin UK on completion of my Business Studies degree and if my grades are successful I will be back working there in about a year.

I would recommend anyone thinking of coming to Lockheed Martin UK to go for it. I have had a very worthwhile experience and have developed tremendously.
