Dear Hiring Manager:
Thank you for considering me for the Aeronautical Engineer Associate position within AF Reentry
System Programs of Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company (Requisition # 216618BR). I
learned of the position through the Lockheed Martin’s database. I believe my testing and design
experience, aerospace engineering education at the University of Maryland (UMD), and my
technical communication experience make me an excellent candidate for this position.
As my résumé indicates, I worked at the U.S. Army’s Aberdeen Test Center (ATC) for 3.5 years in
the business of test and evaluation of military equipment as an engineering student trainee. I
worked on several fire control system performance tests of foreign weapons ranging from small
arms to tanks and have written a technical test report on the performance of a foreign tank’s fire
control system. I also supported evaluation testing of various UAVs, UAV launch systems,
airborne sensors, and vehicle armor. Since I worked with both engineers and technicians, I
effectively bridged the communication gap between these two groups so our team could
successfully plan and execute tests. I currently hold a U.S. Secret clearance.
I am also the project manager for UMD’s Design, Build, Fly (DBF) competition team. As part of
the development of our radio-controlled cargo UAV, I will gain experience in wind tunnel testing,
aerodynamic design and analysis, control surface design, structural design and analysis, composite
manufacturing, and project management over the next few months. I am enrolled in a Flight
Testing class that will refine my knowledge of and experience with aeronautical testing that will
start with DBF. I honed strong leadership and communication skills which during my efforts to
earn the rank of Eagle Scout with the Boy Scouts of America.
I am confident my skills and qualifications will enable me to positively contribute to the mission
of Lockheed Martin as an Aeronautical Engineer. I welcome the opportunity to meet in person for
an interview. You may reach me at or 443-240-2345. Thank you for your
consideration; I look forward to hearing from you.
