Chicago Distinguished Candidate Hiring Conference
Hire Top Military Officers through our Chicago, Illinois National Event
Sunday, March 11 - Monday, March 12, 2018
Since 1991, our clients have told us that the most important factor in deciding to hire military through an agency is the Quality of Candidate. Our unique Distinguished Candidate Conferences are designed to recruit, assess, screen, and present the top military candidates for your hiring needs. In 2016, nearly 175 client companies strategically hired Orion's Military Officers through our Distinguished Candidate Conferences, with nearly 50% making multiple hires.
Our Distinguished Candidate Conference enables you to develop a strong pipeline of future leaders and fosters strategic organizational growth.
