“If you actually look like your passport photo, you aren’t well enough to travel.”

~ Sir Vivian Fuchs

 

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.

***  SNA Maritime Security Forum

 

The Surface Navy Association and the Coast Guard Cuttermen Association

 

Maritime Security Forum – March 14 2012

United States Coast Guard Academy, New London, Connecticut

 

The Surface Navy Association along with the Coast Guard Cuttermen Association are sponsoring our second Maritime Security Forum, entitled “Maritime Security: Guarding Our Country and Our Way of Life” to be held March 14, 2012 at the United States Coast Guard Academy, New London, Connecticut.

 

This event will bring Navy, Coast Guard, Industry, Inter-agency and International stakeholders together to discuss the Cooperative Strategy for 21st Century Sea power and how it applies to maritime security.

 

At this event we will examine the threats to America and its allies, both large and small. We will look into how disruptions to maritime commerce have global implications and how homeland defense begins far from our shores, and involves a broad spectrum of participants, each with vital capability and capacity.  We will see how armed services and civilian agencies cooperate to share information and act upon that information and how industry contributes to global maritime domain awareness.  We will show how technology, operations, policy, and information sharing must be coordinated to achieve maritime security.

 

We are presenting leaders who can address operations, policy, technology, and above all the importance of partnerships to achieve maritime security.  No individual service or organization can solely ensure maritime security.

 

Details and registration for this thought provoking event can be found at http://www.navysna.org/CGForum/Index.htm

***  The Surface Navy Association (SNA) Scholarship program is an annual activity that SNA is very proud to offer to our members’ dependent children and spouses for undergraduate and graduate education.  The academic achievements of our scholars are impressive and our current year’s renewal GPA (for those asking for a second through fourth year of

support) was 3.64.

 

An SNA Scholar receives an academic scholarship based on demonstrated leadership, community service, academic achievement and commitment to pursuing higher educational objectives. Our criteria require that an applicant be a child, stepchild, ward or spouse of a current SNA member who is a Surface Warfare Officer or Enlisted Surface Warfare Specialist or Officers and Enlisted members of the Coast Guard who’ve earned a permanent Cutterman’s pin, with three years of sea time.

 

With humble beginnings in 1995, with one scholarship for $500, we now award over $120,000 per year to 60 total individuals.  In fact, since

2002 we have provided nearly three quarters of a million dollars in scholarship support to our members and families.

 

This past year, SNA received over 50 applications and was able to award scholarships to 17 of these outstanding new applicants. With your help, we can continue to grow this exceptional program. SNA is currently accepting donations for the scholarship fund online at:

 

https://www.navysna.org/SNA/ScholarshipCCDonation.asp

 

The Surface Navy Association greatly values any donation and all donations are tax deductible as SNA is a 501(c) 3 organization. As an example of the financial clout we can have together, if every member gave just $25, it would be enough to award over 20 fully-funded new scholarships. This is an important way for us to invest in the futures of the families of our nation’s Surface Warriors.
