How to Compete for the Best Military Talent

Wednesday, February 14, 2018

If you are like most employers, you realize the many benefits of hiring veterans, know that the quality of military candidates is second to none, and aim to incorporate veterans into your hiring initiatives. You know that veterans possess experience, training, and education that is unmatched by their peers. But, do you know how to best reach this talent?

Mike Starich, CEO of Orion Talent, recently wrote an article on this topic for Recruiting Daily titled “Hiring Veterans? Here’s How to Compete for the Best Military Talent”. In it, Mike explains why veteran hiring requires more planning than you may have considered and how to compete for the best military candidates. We invite you to read the article for some valuable insight into veteran hiring.

You can also advance your workforce capabilities and productivity with military and veteran candidates recruited through one of Orion Talent’s Distinguished Candidate Conferences (DCC) and 70+ annual hiring conferences. 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.

Our regional Hiring Conferences bring employers and military candidates together for concentrated recruiting events that combine networking, interviewing and opportunity assessments. See below for our Spring Hiring Conference schedule.
