“Most of the shadows of this life are caused by standing in one's own
sunshine.”
– Ralph Waldo Emerson

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. 

Laura and I will be traveling to Florence and Tuscany next week.  You
will receive a newsletter on 25 April but I will then take a brief
vacation.

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.

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, but there
is no queue now) 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 never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.
