“A man without ethics is a wild beast loosed upon this world.”

– Albert Camus

 

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.  DECFON 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.
