Why Hire Junior Military Officers?

Recruiting JMOs ensures you have a strong pipeline of future leaders. These exceptional candidates are ideal for positions in:

JMOs possess engineering degrees from America's top universities, and many have advanced degrees, as well. They are committed to quality and process improvement and have excellent hands-on experience and the background to succeed in a variety of settings.

JMOs have unmatched experience as the key managers responsible for the overall direction of key military projects. In the military, they are trusted to manage resources to get an assigned project done on time and at budget. Additionally, many of our JMO candidates have earned a Project Management Professional (PMP) certification.

Whether operations, engineering, or sales, LDPs are a smart way to mentor JMOs as your company's next generation of leaders. Our JMO candidates want to learn, prove themselves as a valued team member, and have a desire to become a business leader. Their military advancement has trained them to desire the clear cut professional growth LDPs offer.

JMOs excel in Operations Management because of their leadership, organization, and communication skills. Additionally, their military occupations are highly transferable to common operations roles in fields like distribution or transportation.

JMOs excel in Sales positions, leveraging their communication, management, and leadership skills to professionally engage and interact with new and existing clients at all levels. Our candidates' motivation and work ethic allow them to build a client base and quickly climb into leadership positions within the sales hierarchy. Orion candidates receive higher ratings than their peers in performance and effectiveness, allowing for early and rapid promotion.

The manufacturing field is very well suited for JMOs due to the direct correlation of their military experience and leadership style. JMOs hit the ground running and make an immediate impact on an organization's bottom line and profitability.
