US Army, O-3
I had a very good experience with Orion. I feel the Orion's best service is the one-on-one time at the hiring conferences. It allows you to practice interviewing amongst your peers and under the direction of an experienced Orion rep. I was able to work out the bugs and get some quality feedback from a group of colleagues.
Mike Wood worked with me and eventually linked me up with Todd Phillips at the Chicago DCC. Through the conference, I was able to land a job at the Hershey Company two days after interviewing. Both were outstanding professionals. I truly felt like they were doing everything within their scope to find the right job for me. Mike especially offered me good interview and follow-up advice.
I would definitely recommend Orion to any officers interested in making a career move to the civilian side. I was skeptical about the process at first; but after attending the conference, I found that everyone involved was truly doing their best to get me a job.
I was able to pull any of the Orion team members aside and ask for advice on how to translate some of the military language and skills into what companies are looking for. Also, I was pleasantly surprised at the quality of companies that were attending these conferences. Both conferences I went to included Fortune 100 companies with a good mix of engineering, operations, and sales positions.
