“It is wise to keep in mind that neither success nor failure is ever final.”

– Roger Babson

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.

*** Surface Warships 2012:

Exploring the Future of Global Surface Combatant Fleets

In a highly uncertain strategic environment, the ability to use the majority of the world's surface, and reach most of its population makes maritime forces those of choice for the world's main actors and their allies – and surface warships are key components of such forces. Their need to police the oceans against the dual threats of terrorism and piracy make surface warship programmes a crucial and indispensable part of the future maritime environment.

Surface Warships will provide the ideal environment for industry and naval professional to discuss innovative future designs and the need to keep current vessels battle ready through capability upgrades and refits.

23 – 25 January, 2012, Hyatt Regency, Paris, France

*** Transitioning to the New USAJOBS!

The Office of Personnel Management (OPM) is changing USAJOBS for the better! To best roll out the new and improved USAJOBS, the ability to search for jobs will be offline from October 7-12, 2011.

The transition to USAJOBS 3.0 is underway. Interested in what's going on behind the scenes during this planned system transition? We promise there's no Wizard behind the curtain, but there are over 5 billion lines of data being extracted from the current system, scanned for viruses, and validated before importing them into the new USAJOBS, USAJOBS 3.0. Assuming you have an account profile and stored resume in the current system, yours is one of the 8.4 million documents that will be transferred during this transition period. We're also ensuring that agencies have an opportunity to restock the shelves with job opportunities before we come back online after the holiday weekend. So, all the moving parts are busy behind the scenes working hard to create a better applicant experience for you.

Ever wonder how jobs were published before the Internet? Learn more about the evolution of USAJOBS in tomorrow’s feature.
