The University of New Haven and Lockheed Martin, a global security and aerospace company that employs approximately 110,000 people worldwide, will host Lockheed Martin Day on campus on Wednesday, February 19.
The special event, which is part of the University’s yearlong commemoration of its Centennial year, will celebrate the University’s longstanding relationship with Stratford-based Sikorsky, a Lockheed Martin company that manufacturers the Army’s iconic Black Hawk helicopter.
Throughout the day, on-site job and internship interviews for University of New Haven students will be conducted by Lockheed Martin leaders, and offers will be made on the spot to qualified candidates. Lockheed Martin will be seeking applicants for many diverse departments within the company, and students from across the University are expected to participate.
Lockheed Martin holds only a handful of these programs each year on college campuses across the country, and President Steven H. Kaplan, Ph.D., said the University is fortunate to be able to collaborate with the Fortune 100 company to host this event.
