"We felt very safe at the Hiring Conference we just attended. There was space in our room to be comfortable while also social distancing. We wore masks, as did the candidates. Everything worked out well!" - Cory Lock, Vice President, Sales & Marketing, General Aire Systems, Inc.


"Interviewing candidates face-to-face last month in Philadelphia helped me interact with them much more naturally, which, in turn, made the interview experience more productive. The facility was clean, and all the expected safety protocols were in place, so I had no concerns regarding Covid-19 or for my personal safety." - Matt Breuer, Branch Manager, BrandSafway Solutions

An Orion Hiring Conference is NOT a Job Fair

An Orion Hiring Conference is NOT a Job Fair

An Orion Hiring Conference is very different from a job fair. While job fairs have helped companies find veterans, it is a more anonymous and less targeted way to go about it. Unlike a job fair, where no interview takes place, at an Orion Hiring Conference, you will be conducting one-on-one interviews with prescreened, qualified, top-tier military candidates, matched with your opportunity, location and salary, all in a private interview suite.

At a job fair, you are not guaranteed that the right candidate will happen upon your booth and apply for that Field Service Technician, a Maintenance Mechanic, and a Production Supervisor position you need to fill. Orion Hiring Conferences, on the other hand, produce immediate results, with 82% of our clients scheduling follow-up interviews and 76% of final Interviews leading to a Hire. Additionally, 43% of our candidates are still on Active Duty and may not have online job seeker profiles, making them difficult to access otherwise.

According to our Military Transition Survey, when asked to rank the effectiveness of Job Fairs and Hiring Conferences, Hiring Conferences were ranked as "Very Effective" 10 times more often than Job Fairs. Military Job Fairs can be a great way to meet many service members in a single day and collect a high volume of resumes. However, when it comes to hiring effectiveness, Hiring Conferences can't be beat.

A private room prevents the distractions and noise found in the common areas of the hotel, and sets a good tone for the candidates that your company is serious about hiring.
