“Sometimes questions are more important than answers.”

– Nancy Willard

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, now serving more than 800 subscribers. 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.
