Sales Manager

US Navy, O-3

I tried for a while to ‘work my network’, but I just couldn’t make any movement. I had two major obstacles to overcome—I had never had a civilian job and had been out of the work force for several years post MBA. Orion presented me to their clients who wanted to fill positions immediately, and my obstacles ended up being very minor issues in my interviews.

I am now a Sales Manager with Aero Precision Industries, and I feel that my background as a Supply Corps Lieutenant (selected for Lieutenant Commander) in the Navy was vital for this position. Working in the world of spare and repair parts, people leadership, strategy position, and with high-level military and government officials made me a natural for this position.

Orion helped me start my civilian career in seven weeks from first phone call to STARTING my new position. JP Sniffen, my Orion recruiter, was great. He listened to what I wanted. I felt like we worked together and nothing was ‘pushed’ on me. Orion was wonderful.
