For Pratt & Whitney workers who are not yet ready to retire and want to explore other job or career options within it, the company has devised several new programs.

Every second Tuesday, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Pratt's career Twitter handle, @PWCareers, offers "Two for Tuesday,'' in which two new Pratt job openings are posted every two hours. Potential candidates can interact with Pratt through LinkedIn, Twitter, Instagram or Snapchat.

Pratt also reminds employees doors also are open to jobs and careers at its sister UTC divisions — Otis Elevator, Carrier, UTC Fire & Security, all in Farmington; and United Technologies Aerospace Systems (UTAS) in Windsor Locks.

There's also the shot at some extra dough for employees who refer people Pratt eventually hires. Pratt won't divulge what it offers in bounties.
