Free Career Placement Services for Transitioning Military Officers

"Orion outshined their competition in my mind. Numbers are not the game for Orion's recruiters. They are attuned to the needs of the companies that hire them, as well as the former military members they represent. They know what both parties like and what they need; they won't sacrifice the expectations of either for the sake of meeting a quota or to gain a higher commission. This organization is set up the right way to support this mindset. I would not even consider using another recruiting service.

I am so grateful to Orion for their work to get me work. I feel as if I hit the jackpot with the company I landed with. It is a great match, and it never would have been made without Orion. Thank you, thank you, thank you. I recommend Orion to every quality transitioning military member I talk to." - Gabriel Yoder, Project Manager, Integrated Project Management, USAFA '07

"I've been off Active Duty for almost seven years now and have worked for three different civilian employers. When it comes to job seeking, Orion is the best. They have proven themselves with each of my job searches and have delivered results before any other recruiter or job search website.

Orion eliminated the stresses of finding a job and presented multiple positions to me that were a great fit. I would highly recommend Orion to any Veteran looking to kick start their civilian career!" - Thomas Filbert, ISC Supervisor, Honeywell Aerospace, USAFA '04
