Communications Leadership Program



United Technologies attracts some of the world’s best and brightest minds, and with our Communications Leadership Program (CLP), we develop those minds to lead through experience. The CLP is a two-year rotational program that challenges and develops each associate’s potential through assignments in a broad range of communications functions.
We recruit self-starters who demonstrate leadership ability, have a strong academic record and look for opportunities in each assignment. Ideal candidates have a strong desire to pursue a career in communications and have aspirations to advance as leaders at UTC.

The CLP recruits annually July through October for cohorts starting the following June.
