“Be more concerned with your character than your reputation, because

your character is what you really are, while your reputation is merely

what others think you are.”

- John Wooden

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.
