Free Career Placement Services for Transitioning Military Officers

"I had the pleasure of working with Orion, namely Todd Phillips and Scott McNary, during my military-to-civilian transition. I wanted to transition into the civilian job market in a saless position, so Todd and Scott got me up to speed on preparing for sales interviews and gave me the opportunity to get in front of multiple top-tier companies.

During a social mixer at one of Orion's hiring conferences, I was conversing with a high-level sales director for a Fortune Global Top 50 company. The next day, the Orion team ensured that we got a chance to meet in a more formal interview setting, and a few weeks later, I was conducting final interviews and negotiating an offer. The service and level of professionalism provided by the Orion team are second-to-none in military-to-civilian placement! I highly recommend their services to anyone getting ready to make the jump." - Zach Robinson, Sales Account Executive, Siemens Industry, USNA '07

"I am three months into my new job as a Technical Support Engineer for a semiconductor test equipment manufacturer, and I feel very well-prepared. As a former Lieutenant in the Navy with Surface Warfare (nuclear) training, I had no experience in the semiconductor industry, but was hired with the assumption that I could be easily trained and would be largely self-directed.

Orion was engaged and aggressive in pursuing opportunities on my behalf. My recruiters were infinitely understanding, patient, and flexible. I truly believe that Orion is committed to placing veterans in positions that are of mutual benefit to both companies and former service members. Their proficiency in this endeavor enables them to offer a value-added service to both companies and individuals." - Patrick Brandon, Technical Support Engineer, KLA-Tencor, USNA '04
