Veterans Florida is teaming up with Lockheed Martin to hire veterans across the Sunshine State.
“Lockheed Martin currently employs approximately 100,000 individuals worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacturing, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The company aims to assist in expanding the ongoing initiatives of the Veterans Workforce Training Programs by providing new services meant to maximize veteran employment opportunities in Florida,” Veterans Florida noted on Thursday as it announced the partnership.
“Veterans bring valuable leadership, skills, and a mission-focused mindset that are fundamental to fulfilling our commitment to customer success,” said Michael Williamson, a vice president of missiles and fire control for Lockheed Martin.
“Lockheed Martin is excited to partner with Veterans Florida and build a strong workforce that can compete in today’s modern economy, and reflects our dedication to creating economic opportunity for veterans in communities across Florida and the United States,” Williamson added.
“We are excited to work with Lockheed Martin to provide veterans who are interested in the high-tech field of aerospace the opportunity to succeed in Florida,” said Joe Marino, the executive director of Veterans Florida, on Thursday.
“We are committed to enabling transitioning veterans and their families to connect with veteran friendly employers who value their talent and experience,” Marino added.
