“Service to others is the rent you pay for your room here on
earth”
~ Muhammad Ali

Notice to subscribers: Due to my hard drive
crash and several other
converging factors I found it challenging to quickly
resume weekly
publication of DEFCON 1. Some recent emails from some of our

subscribers have encouraged me to make an effort and get this newsletter

back on track. So, it is with my apologies that DEFCON 1 has been

suspended, and with hope that I am continuing to provide this service.

I want to state that DEFCON 1 is a cooperative service, meaning it is

about all of us sharing, not just me giving.

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.

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