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.

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.
