“There is no point in having the capacity if you haven't got the will to use it.”

-Viscount Montgomery of Alamein

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.
