“If you're going through hell, keep going.”

– Winston Churchill

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.

I’m off to Paris for a week with my family. There will be no DEFCON 1 newsletter next Wednesday.

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. This is a cooperative network. That means everyone’s participation is required to provide job opportunities to share.

Help the network grow. Sign up a friend. They can join for free simply by sending a blank email to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.

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 cannot do this for you.

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

*** From 27 APR to 01 MAY, PBS will run a ten hour documentary on the crew

of the USS NIMITZ filmed/ taped last year. It contains a bit more about

life onboard a carrier [yes I know, (aka CVN/CV, ship, boat, postage

stamp, ride, target, can opener, etc.)]

It is getting a bit of attention here at OPNAV b/c of the unprecedented

access on board and the emotional component (as well as the fact my boss

here at OPNAV N3, RDML Branch, at the time of filming, was the CO of the

NIMITZ. His boss, RADM Daly, was the CARRIER STRIKE GROUP CMDR.)

The web site link below provides a brief preview of the show. Consider

it a reality show about real life onboard a carrier (not a game show in

the guise of “reality.”

I know many of you are overseas but, hopefully you it will be able to

access it on AFRTS.
