Leadership Development Program

COMMUNICATIONS LDP (CLDP)

This program is an exciting avenue for enthusiastic, strategic early-career individuals to gain experience in the fields of internal, external and visual communications in preparation for future leadership roles with Lockheed Martin.

Program Details

This intensive two-year rotational program delivers a diverse communications experience. In the internal and external communications track, you'll spend one year growing your expertise in employee communications and community relations, followed by another one-year rotation in marketing communications and media relations. For visual communicators, you'll spend two years broadening your skills in visual storytelling, branding, web design, and photo and video production.

Immersed in the inner workings of the world's leading advanced technology company, you'll develop the skills to put you on the fast track to leadership through a number of learning and training opportunities. During the program, you'll also have an opportunity to attend two leadership development conferences and network with professionals and LDP peers from disciplines across the organization - as well as attend an enriching communications workshop at our corporate headquarters.

We also support and encourage our participants to continue their education and provide tuition reimbursement to help you complete your master's degree.

Who can participate?

We accept applicants with relevant communications undergraduate and graduate degrees who have a track record of strong performance in previous positions or internships. Ideal candidates should be flexible and enthusiastic and possess a sincere interest in growing their careers in the technology industry. The program is open to graduating seniors and those with less than five years of professional experience. New program participants start every June, and the selection process starts in the fall.

This isn't just an incredible career move—it's a chance to be on the cutting edge of technology development and to help tell the story of a company that's engineering a better tomorrow.
