Welcome to the latest edition of the number one Defense Career Opportunities Newsletter, “DEFCON-1,” a networking newsletter featuring job opportunities and career advice for you, the men and women of the global defense, aerospace and security industry.  DEFCON 1 is the companion newsletter to the Job of the Week newsletter for professional communicators (see below for instructions on how to subscribe to JOTW for free). 

 

Please share these opportunities and refer this network to your friends in the defense industry.  They can subscribe for free when they send a blank a-mail to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.

 

Transitioning, or changing your e-mail address?  Don't forget to change your DEFCON – 1 subscription.  Send a blank e-mail from the old account to DCO-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then a blank e-mail from your new account to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.

 

This is a cooperative network.  That means everyone’s participation is required to provide job opportunities to share.  When you learn about a job opportunity in the defense sector, such as a position that comes open with your company, you send me the title, organization, location, and a brief description; link; or contact information, and I’ll share.

 

Your company’s jobs can be listed here when you share them with me.

 

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.
