Lockheed to Provide Job Opportunities for US Vets Through New Partnership

Lockheed Martin has partnered with nonprofit Veterans Florida in an effort to drive job growth in the state, Tampa Bay Business Journal reported Tuesday.

Veterans Florida said in a press release that the defense company, which employs roughly 100K individuals around the world, will be offering new services designed to provide employment opportunities to U.S. military veterans living in the Sunshine State.

The effort is also meant to help support initiatives under the Veterans Workforce Training Programs.

Molly Collins, spokeswoman for Veterans Florida, said that Lockheed is "looking at all types of resumes" to find veterans "jobs from super high-end on down."

According to the Florida Department of Veterans' Affairs, 1.5M veterans live in the state.
