Three Ways to Hire Veterans This Summer

Thursday, June 20, 2019
Summer is here, but smart employers know not to let the relaxed pace of the season overshadow their recruiting initiatives. Veteran unemployment is at a record low, and as more companies leverage this top talent, it is important to stay competitive, even at a traditionally slower time of year. 
Orion Talent Military Hiring Conferences offer companies the opportunity to do just that with our Distinguished Candidate Conferences (DCC), Regional Hiring Conference, and Virtual Hiring Events! Our 2019 Summer Hiring Conference schedule is full of excellent recruiting events that combine networking, interviewing, and opportunity to assess our candidates.
At our DCCs, we present carefully selected candidates representing the very top tier of Military Officers transitioning from Active Duty. They are seeking careers in growth roles including Leadership Development, Operations Management, Engineering, and Sales.
Cincinnati Distinguished Candidate Conference - August 5 - 6
