Veteran Engineering Industry Jobs & Careers through Orion Talent

Why Engineering?

Engineering is the most in-demand career field. Engineering encompasses a broad range of positions. Many JMO candidates do not feel qualified for a position in this field since they have been out of school and "out of practice" for several years. In many cases, it does not matter if you have an engineering degree or not, or how recently you have used it. Companies may take a candidate with a hard science degree, strong technical aptitude and practical experience for some engineering roles. Serving as an Engineering Division Officer on a ship or the Quality Assurance Officer in your squadron may qualify you for an engineering role.
