“Many attempts to communicate are nullified by saying too much.”
– Robert Greenleaf

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.

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.

***  Seeking Employment:

Greetings,

My name is David Small.  I have 10 years experience as an Air Force
officer, primarily in the field of Public Affairs.  In that role, I
focused on strategic communications, having shaped and delivered
messages tailored for multiple individual audiences.  I am well versed
in creating and executing holistic communications plans and am an
articulate spokesman for sensitive issues.  I also have experience
working with Congressional audiences and conducting media analysis with
governmental policy implications.  My military experience has made me a
strong leader and manager, having successfully led organizations in
excess of 80 people.  I hold an active
TS-SCI clearance.  I am a detail-oriented team leader, having put that
skill to work for marketing and organizing large-scale events.  In the
marketing field, I also have experience with corporate branding.  My
educational background is Journalism and Mass Communication. I also hold
a Master's degree in Information Resources Management, which I put to
use managing multi-million-dollar telecommunications projects.  I will
officially separate the service in Sept 2007, but will be available for
new career opportunities in July.  I can be reached at david.small@alumni.unc.edu or
(703) 901-9527.

Thanks,
David Small
