“They always say time changes things, but you actually have to change them yourself.”

– Andy Warhol

 

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.

***  Maritime Homeland Security Summit 2012

30 April, 2012 – 2 May, 2012

Norfolk, VA, United States

 

The conclusion of active operations in the Middle East calls into

question the ongoing threat from radical extremism and the other threats

faced by the United States. Due to the heightened intensity of threats

the Coast Guard has taken steps to secure safety and has allocated

$10.34 billion for FY2012 towards modernization and increasing maritime

security capabilities. It’s an important time for the maritime community

to accurately assess its priorities and plan for both existing and

emerging challenges.

 

The 10th Annual Maritime Homeland Security Summit will bring together

all relevant stakeholders to discuss the most pressing issues facing the

maritime community, from efforts to build new partnerships to

modernizing security capabilities. Departmental policy makers, uniformed

service leaders, law enforcement and industry partners will gather in

Norfolk to network, share best practices and explore potential paths to

fortifying the United States’ maritime security.
