Defense contractors holding job fairs

Wednesday - 5/18/2011, 8:40am EDT

Several defense contractors are hanging out a "Help Wanted" sign. BAE Systems is hosting a job fair next week in Annapolis Junction to help fill nearly 200 jobs. The Baltimore Business Journal reports BAE is beefing up its staff near Fort Meade and Aberdeen Proving Ground because of BRAC. And they're not the only ones. Bechtel is holding job fairs this week at its offices in Frederick. Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, SAIC and Computer Sciences Corp are participating in the TechExpo event at the BWI Marriott today. For that job fair, you must have an active security clearance.
