“Continuous, unflagging effort, persistence and determination will win. Let not the man be discouraged who has these.”

– James Whitcomb Riley

***  This issue of DEFCON 1 comes to you from Baltimore and the SPIE Defense Security and Sensing and IDGA Maritime Homeland Defense conferences.

***  You can also subscribe to this and my other two newsletters at http://bit.ly/JOTWSubscribe.  The Job of the Week serves communication professionals.  Your Very Next Step is my travel/outdoors/adventure/conservation newsletter.  They’re all free!

 

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 visiting http://bit.ly/JOTWSubscribe and selecting DEFCON 1.

 

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.

 

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.
