Personal Branding Plan
Work ethic, reliability, and results. These are three of the important character traits that I feel separate me from other candidates when it comes to competing for a job. The time that I spent in the military is what I credit a large part of my work ethic to. From Day one in the military you are required to do everything to the best of your ability and to continue to do so until the task is completed.

My job in the military was as an aerospace maintenance journeyman on the C-130 cargo aircraft, or better known as a C-130 crew chief. Lockheed has been an industry leader in military aircraft and aircraft parts, so with my extensive experience and my fondness of all things military related combine to make working for Lockheed a dream come true. The best method for contacting Lockheed is to look at the job postings that are available through their website, and even more specifically, through the military careers section of the website (Lockheed Martin Corporation, 2015).
The third job that I would have to consider a dream job would have to be to own my own company. I have had an idea that I came up with about 3 years ago and it is something that I could definitely see myself being...
