Veteran Spotlight

After nearly 24 years in the Navy, Orion has helped Rob Sickmiller, a former Navy Nuclear Machinst Mate, find rewarding careers with two companies, including his current career with Bridgestone. You can learn more about his military transition and civilian career on our blog and podcast.

All of Orion's job seeker services are completely FREE of charge, as we are paid by the companies who hire us to recruit and prepare qualified candidates. As a member of our highly trained and experienced Navy Mechanic personnel, you have many traits that are sought out in the civilian workforce and experience unmatched by your civilian peers.

Orion works with the most dominant list of corporate clients in the industry, and we are the leaders in providing our candidates superior corporate exposure and the most thorough resume and preparation assistance. An Orion Hiring Conference is your opportunity to interview directly with companies we have matched you with. Our average selection rate per lineup is over 50%, with an average hire cycle time less than 21 days.

We put your needs first. We listen to your desires and preferences and look for positions that match your requirements. We will never "push" positions on you. You will never be required to work exclusively with Orion. We want you to work with us because we are the best, not because you signed an agreement with us!


Whether you have two years or two weeks before you leave active military service, there are many steps you can take prior to your separation date that will position you for success as you transition into the civilian workforce. We invite you to use these tools and tips to navigate the change. No matter where you are in the transition and who you need to consider (spouse, children, etc.), we have resources that can help you plan and manage the changes ahead.
