A little learning is a dangerous thing;

Drink deep, or taste not the Pierian spring:*

There shallow draughts intoxicate the brain,

And drinking largely sobers us again.

- Alexander Pope

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.

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.

*** Naval History Seminar:

Colleagues: Please join us to hear this illustrated presentation from a renowned author of the U.S. Navy in World War II

Lecture: “The Long Ride of the Surface Warrior, 1942-1944″ by James

Hornfischer, author of Last Stand of the Tin Can Sailors and Ship of

Ghosts. He will discuss the under-celebrated gallantry of destroyer and cruiser sailors in some of the most desperate fighting our Navy has ever engaged in. The author will give the Battle of Sunda Strait (March 1, 1942) and the Battle off Samar (October 25, 1944) the attention they so richly deserve. The themes of heroism and the fragility of memory can be rewardingly illustrated by telling the story of these two key World War II battles.

When: 12:00-1:00 on Tuesday 19 June 2007

Where: Education Center of the National Museum of the U.S. Navy, Bldg. 76, Washington Navy Yard
