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.

A message from the city of Boston
We are excited to be welcoming the ships of the War of 1812 Bicentennial Commemorations for the July 4th week. The international tall ships, active Navy ships, and ships of America’s coalition partners will be on display in Boston and will serve as the centerpiece for the commemoration festivities.

We are truly looking forward to a successful event in partnership with Operation Sail and the US Navy for this historic milestone.
