Orion Talent will be holding our last two Distinguished Candidate Conferences (DCC) of 2018 in Atlanta, GA, and San Diego, CA, on October 8 & 9.  These events will host more than 40 different company interview lineups and 120 military officer candidates.  Orion's National DCCs are an opportunity to interview the very best Military Officers within our candidate pool for positions in Engineering, Sales, Leadership Development and Operations Management.

The candidates selected for the DCC represent the top talent transitioning from the Military and have distinguished themselves in education, performance, and potential. They include Service Academy Graduates and graduates of the nation's top universities, candidates with MBAs and other advanced degrees, those with PMPs, PEs, and other professional certifications, candidates who have consistently ranked well above their peers in their professional military evaluations Additionally, they are geographically flexible.

Our DCCs offer a unique format, designed to maximize our clients’ chances of connecting with the right candidate. Companies like General Dynamics, Fanatics, Sherwin Williams, and Eaton have already signed on to attend these events and gain the competitive advantage DCCs offer in a tight labor market. In the past year, 130 client companies interviewed Orion's Military Officers at our Distinguished Candidate Conferences, with 30% making multiple hires.

The feedback from clients attending our DCCs is consistent every year, with hiring managers saying it is the best way to find their company's next leaders.
