“Victory is sweetest when you've known defeat.”

– Malcolm S. Forbes

This issue is coming to you from Summerville, South Carolina. I have been traveling, so this issue will be shorter than usual, and probably a little off schedule.

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, maritime, marine technology 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.

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.

“Learn the art of ‘Ned-working’ with ‘Job of the Week’ creator Ned Lundquist!”

DATE:

Thursday, November 8, 2007

DETAILS:

Communications professionals everywhere have benefited from Ned Lundquist's decision to leave the U.S. Navy in 2000 and find a new job. After 24 years of service, he first needed to expand his network to tap into communications openings in the private sector.

The rest is history. Lundquist's own job search led to the creation of his “Job of the Week” (JOTW), an online clearinghouse for pros in communications. Since 2001, Ned's Web site — www.nedsjotw.com — has become a community of job seekers, hiring managers and other communications pros that is 7,000 strong and growing. Ned has been written up in the Wall Street Journal, which called his site “a virtual water cooler” where visitors share camaraderie as well as Lundquist's quirky sense of humor.

A popular speaker who circles the globe sharing his networking insights, Ned Lundquist will be the featured guest at IABC's dinner meeting Nov. 8 at Maggiano's Little Italy in SouthPark. Looking to make your next career move? By all means come. If you're not looking for a job now, there's a good chance you will be at some point. Even if you've found your dream job and believe you'll never be in the job market again, come anyway for an entertaining and informative evening with Ned Lundquist.
