“It always seemed strange to me that the things we admire in men,

kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling

are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we

detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and

self-interest are the traits of success. And while men admire the

quality of the first, they love the produce of the second.”

– John Steinbeck

This issue of DEFCON 1 comes to you from San Francisco, California.

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.

DECFON 1 brings you job opportunities every week, and counts on members

like you to submit job listings to share and post in this newsletter.

Help the network grow. Sign up a friend. They can join for free simply

by sending a blank email to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.

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.

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.
