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.

I would like to invite you and the amazing people who are part of the JOTW and DEFCON networks to what I hope will be a very special event:  “A Different View at the Doo.”  This showing at Atlanta’s dooGallery (http://www.doogallery.com/doogallery/Home.html) will also be a fundraiser for Team Rubicon (http://teamrubiconusa.org/), a charity that brings together the skills and experience of military veterans with first responders so that emergency response teams can be rapidly deployed around the world at need.  JOTW and DEFCON member C. Blake Powers is an award-winning author and photographer (when not being a consultant), and the works shown will not only pieces from his “A Different View” book series but also wolves, food, and more.  He is working to get sponsors so that they can raise the most money possible for Team Rubicon, and will even be donating 10 percent of each print sold that night to the charity.  The entrance fee will be $10 per person.  Updates and more information can be found at http://facebook.com/thereallaughingwolf and athttp://laughingwolf.net.
