Issue # 499

 

“When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.”

– John Muir

 

This edition of DEFCON 1 comes to you from Springfield, Virginia.

 

*** 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.

 

***  NOTE:  I am migrating this newsletter to a new Google Groups List (Defense Career Opportunities Network).

 

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.
