Issue # 461

 

“Success is a lousy teacher. It seduces smart people into thinking they can’t lose.”

– Bill Gates

 

***  This edition of DEFCON 1 comes to you from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada.

 

***  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.

 

***  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!

 

***  To change your email address for DEFCON 1, use the unsubscribe button at the bottom of your newsletter, and then subscribe with your new address at:  http://bit.ly/JOTWSubscribe.

 

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.

Maritime security must be achieved through the cooperative efforts of national agencies, such as navies, border patrols, customs and coast guards, then sharing information between partner nations (Photo: Europol)

 

Baltic Sea nations are cooperating more than ever to ensure safety, security and sovereignty, but it is a complex environment, with threats seen and unseen on, over and under the sea.
