“To get through the hardest journey we need take only one step at a

time, but we must keep on stepping”

– Chinese Proverb

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.

DEFCON 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.
