Find a Career at Orion's Distinguished Candidate Conferences

Tuesday, January 14, 2020

Orion Talent is kicking off 2020 with our first Distinguished Candidate Conferences of the year. If you are a transitioning or recently transitioned Military Officer or Senior NCO with a Bachelor's degree, don’t miss one of these events!

Orion hosts a number of Distinguished Candidate Conferences each year across the country, featuring 35-40 companies interviewing candidates for positions nationwide across a wide range of industries. These companies are looking for the best leadership talent for their teams within Operations, Medical and Technical Sales, Consulting, Engineering, Project Management, Program Management, and Logistics.

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 2019, nearly 200 Military Officers found their civilian careers through our Distinguished Candidate Conferences, with companies including Corning, Honeywell, Ingersoll Rand, Siemens, and many others. See below for our upcoming DCC schedule:

February 24 - 25, 2020 - Philadelphia, PA

March 9 - 10, 2020 - San Diego, CA

April 6 - 7, 2020 - Atlanta, GA

Orion only holds a few DCCs each year, so opportunities to attend are limited. If you would like to be considered for one of our special special hiring events, please complete a form above or contact Chris Hurst at churst@oriontalent.com
