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.

*** From Edie Clark:

Hi, Ned:

One of my association's members is working to support fire and EMS chiefs at military bases and is developing a Milbook community. (I think you must know what that is — Facebook for the military branches, including the fire and EMS part of bases). It is part of the “Milsuite” on the Defense Knowledge Online system (also on Army Knowledge Online, etc.). He wants to network with anyone who is developing Milbook for any of the communities in the military. Pretty niche oriented, but I figure if anyone knows, you do.

Cheers!

Edie Clark
