“Vision without action is merely a dream. Action without vision just passes the time. Vision with action can change the world.”

– Joel A. Barker

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.

*** One Paragraph Pitch:

Hi, Edward!

I thought I would take a moment to reach out to you and see if any of

your contacts have jobs in San Diego. I moved here in the Fall from

the DC area. It may be the Sunshine State but it's dreary in the job

department.

For the past three years I worked as a Program Account Manager for

Summit Marketing, a national promotional marketing company. I managed

several e-Stores for major clients such as Geico, The Melting Pot

restaurant, Deltek and All Risks, Ltd. As Program Manager I ordered

inventory, sourced products, managed the back-end of websites, wrote

product descriptions, photographed merchandise, hosted clients during

tradeshows, handled invoicing and served as the main point of contact

for all clients. These responsibilities taught me how to analyze my

target audience. I learned how to research promotional products that

would best suit their needs, whether it be for use at tradeshows,

events or employee gifts. I worked under tight deadlines, within

strict budgets and built strong relationships with clients.

Prior to my experience as a Program Manager, I interned for United

States Postal Service for two years. This provided me the opportunity

to hone my writing skills. I wrote and edited articles for a daily

newsletter which was sent to all Postal employees. Not only did I

learn how to work efficiently under tight deadlines, but also how to

write in a clear, concise and engaging manner.

I am very organized, results-driven, have strong writing and

communications skills and the ability to absorb information quickly.

This position is one in which I am very capable of and I have a

genuine desire to excel.

Sincerely,

Wendy Northrop (wendy4374@aol.com)
