SALINA, N.Y. — Lockheed Martin Corp. (NYSE: LMT) will host a recruitment event on Thursday from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. on the third floor of Destiny USA’s Canyon area.

The Bethesda, Maryland–based defense contractor says it has more than 200 technical positions currently open at its Salina and Owego sites. “100 of them [at the] Syracuse facility and 100 of them at the Owego facility,” says Matthew Wilkowski, systems engineering manager with Lockheed Martin in Salina, who spoke with BJNN in a Monday phone interview.

The openings include positions in systems engineering, product electrical engineering, hardware engineering, software engineering, integration and testing, and manufacturing operations.

Some of the positions are entry level, and others require more experience, says Wilkowski.

“We like to encourage people to bring a résumé. Bring some examples of how the experience they have might relate to a job at Lockheed Martin,” says Wilkowski.

From there, those attending will have the chance to speak with representatives from the engineering and manufacturing areas of the company. The event will not include interviews.

“It’s more of an exchange of information … and getting the idea out there of what types of positions are available,” says Wilkowski.

The company will also encourage attendees to apply for specific jobs online at www.lockheedmartinjobs.com

Lockheed Martin currently employs about 1,600 people at the Salina plant and 2,600 in Owego, Rae Fulkerson, a company spokesperson, said in an email response to a BJNN inquiry. The firm employs about 100,000 people worldwide.
