We just hired 40 entry level engineers (March 2012) into our 2 year career development program. We are going to announce a hire of 30 more entry level engineers with a posting on www.USAJobs.gov at the end of this week or the very beginning of next week. These 30 entry level engineers will come to work in July of 2012. This is a formalized career development program with supervisor, mentor and an individualized training plan. Full salary and benefits, promotion eligibility (two pay grades) within a year and first assignment relocation assistance.
During this recruitment we are offering almost daily, Video Teleconferences between your students and our entry level engineers in the program so your students can ask them about working for MDA and what the program is like. We will cease these teleconferences as the above announcement closes (around 16 April). We can get your students into one of these teleconferences if you have 5 or more interested candidates and a career services officer to facilitate the hour long session.
Contact me for details about this great opportunity. This development program has over 290 entry level personnel currently engaged in real world MDA missile engineering and engineering acquisition study. More information and the link to the job announcement (once posted) may be found at www.MDACareers.com at the entry Level Career Development Tab.
