“Things may come to those who wait, but only things left by those who
hustle.”
– Abraham Lincoln

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 those who are part of the global
defense, aerospace and security industry. 

Your company's jobs can be listed here when you share them with me. 
Please ask your Director of HR to send me your company's most pressing
job hiring priority each week.  Make sure your recruiting manager
subscribes to DEFCON 1.

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.

If you are seeking employment and want to pitch yourself before hiring
managers in the defense industry, send me (lundquist989@cs.com) your
pitch and I'll post, one at a time (so there might be a queue) and
always first. 

Transitioning, or changing your e-mail address?  Don't forget to change
your DEFCON – 1 subscription.  To unsubscribe, 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.  I cannot do this for you.

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.

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