Key Resources for Active Duty Military and Veterans Preparing to Interview

Tuesday, August 27, 2019

Are you a transitioning military member or a veteran preparing to interview and not sure where to begin? We’ve just launched a new page, Interview Essentials, filled with our most highly recommended podcasts and videos to kickstart your career search and interview with confidence and success.

Each section highlights the podcasts and videos that will help you succeed in the interview process. In our “Getting Ready to Interview” section, we’ve highlighted podcasts such as Everything You Need to Know about Preparing for the Interview Process, Frequently Asked Interview Questions, and Overcoming Challenging Interview Questions. We’ve also included a video on the STAR format to help you navigate and answer interview questions. 

If you are considering interviewing at an Orion Hiring Conference, we’ve included a podcast from Senior Vice President Todd Phillips with everything you need to know about the event, including the differences between an Orion Hiring Conference and a traditional job fair, how to prepare for an Orion Hiring Conference, and what to expect when you attend.

For a deeper look at the interview process, the Interview Essentials page also includes podcasts on how to sell yourself in a job interview, reasons why you’re not getting a second interview, and how to ask the right questions and close the interview like a pro

Lastly, the Interview Essentials page includes information for pursuing a career in Sales. Don't think you're interested in Sales? Consider this - when you interview, you are selling yourself. Make sure you understand the basics of sales and how these concepts can be applied directly to interviewing, with our videos on sales overview and preparation and our podcast on how you can launch your post-military journey with a career in Sales.

We hope that the Interview Essentials page and the tools provided will be a valuable asset in your military transition journey. You can also find more military and veteran job seeker transition resources here.

Don’t forget to subscribe to our podcast, From the Battlefield to the Boardroom! From the topics covered above to financial resources, veteran success, industry spotlights, and more, our podcast is a great resource for every stage of the transition.
