Military Officers Connect with Civilian Careers at Orion’s Distinguished Candidate Conferences

Wednesday, January 9, 2019
Orion Talent is gearing up for another exciting season of Distinguished Candidate Conferences.  With DCCs scheduled throughout February and March all across the country, there will be Engineering, Sales, Project Management, Leadership Development, and Operations Management positions available nationwide.

Distinguished candidates include graduates of Military Service Academies or Top Universities, those with an advanced education, and those that have consistently ranked above their peers in Officer Evaluations.

Our DCCs offer a unique format, designed to maximize our candidates’ chances of receiving a job offer, consisting of interview preparation, briefings by the interviewing companies, and a President's Reception to network with hiring managers and other candidates, culminating in interviews the next day.

You can view a complete guide to our DCCs in this video featuring Orion Regional Recruiting Manager Mike Wood:

The feedback from candidates attending our DCCs is consistent every year, with veterans saying it is by far the best way to find their next career.

In 2018, nearly 130 Military Officers found their civilian careers through our Distinguished Candidate Conference, with companies including Corning, Honeywell, Ingersoll Rand, Siemens, and many others. See below for our upcoming DCC schedule:
February 11 - 12, 2019 - Atlanta, GA   Request an Application
March 4 - 5, 2019 - Houston, TX   Request an Application
March 4 - 5, 2019 - San Diego, CA   Request an Application
March 25 - 26, 2019 - Philadelphia, PA   Request an Application

Orion only holds a few DCCs each year, so opportunities to attend are limited. If you would like to be considered for one of these special hiring events, please contact us via the link above.
