Your experience matters. Your interests matter. Your future matters. You matter.
And as a not-for-profit consultancy focused on the US public sector, LMI has the freedom to focus on what matters. Our end goal is making improvements that make a positive impact on people’s lives. In that spirit, we founded the LMI Wounded Warrior Fellowship Initiative.
The LMI Wounded Warrior Fellowship Initiative is one important way LMI is giving back to the people who have given so much to our nation. Specifically designed for veterans already enrolled in an accredited university program, LMI’s Wounded Warrior Fellowship Initiative pairs veterans considering a career in business with mentors who share a similar military background. Over the course of several months, these mentors help program participants explore the transition from the Armed Services to a new and distinguished business career.
A Good Fit
LMI values what you have already given in service, and what you have learned in the process: about analytical thinking, about taking decisive and correct action. About leadership and about acting with integrity. We know military service and sacrifice builds character. And character is what we seek above all.
We care more about your current interests than your current business background. We seek people who are analytical, energetic, and capable of understanding the big picture—and the details needed to get there. Perhaps most important, we are interested in people who are interested in the type of work that we do: improving the business of government management to create enduring value. If you’re drawn to a career in government consulting that includes logistics, healthcare, financial management, policy support and information management, we’d like to hear from you. In addition, we are looking for individuals who are looking for a career in our corporate support office in the fields of Accounting/Finance, Communications, and Human Resources.
The LMI Wounded Warrior Fellowship Initiative is open to applicants who have a service-related disability, are a U.S. citizen, and who are now enrolled and maintaining at least a 2.5 GPA in an accredited 2- or 4-year university program. The program is competitive, and no more than six participants will be chosen to participate each year.
Program participants would be able to work in one of four locations: Huntsville, Alabama; St. Louis, Missouri; San Antonio, Texas; or our headquarters outside of Washington DC, in McLean, Virginia. The program is open to applicants throughout the United States; U.S. citizenship is required (some housing stipends available).
LMI will accommodate any and all disabilities.
Lt. Gen. (Ret.) Richard Kelly is senior advisor for the Wounded Warrior Fellowship Initiative. Gen. Kelly joined LMI in 2005 following 35 years of service with the U.S. Marine Corps and provides strategic advice to LMI’s corporate leadership while directly supporting the LMI Research Institute and the Logistics Management operating unit.
General Kelly is a distinguished graduate of the Pennsylvania State University, having earned bachelor’s degrees in history and economics and business administration, as well as an MBA.
