US Army, O-3
I received a marketing email from Orion advertising a San Diego Distinguished Candidate Conference that listed companies I was already interested in. I mulled it over for a bit before responding - mostly due to the travel costs, and finally decided to pull the trigger. The best decision ever! After responding, I received a prompt email from Vanessa Cacho and Tim Duba with conference details, followed by a list of companies and the positions they were hiring for and an informative webinar. Unlike other placement firms I've worked with, their job descriptions included insider tips and knowledge to help ace the interview, which I studied voraciously.
The Distinguished Candidate Conference ran very smoothly from day one, and provided valuable one-on-one time with potential employers. On day two, the relationships I built helped me land second interviews and on-site visits with every company I interviewed with!
