Free Career Placement Services for Transitioning Military Officers

"My experience with Orion International couldn't have been better. I knew transitioning out of the Army was something that I wanted to do, but I didn't really know where to start. Once I talked to the Officer Recruiters at Orion, I knew right away I wanted to work with them. My Recruiter genuinely cared about my career and my future and tried to find a good match between me and a company that would foster a long and mutually beneficial career for both me and the company.

After interviewing with eight great companies, I decided on Nestle Waters North America. The job description is perfect, not just to transition out of the Army, but to continue to develop the leadership skills that I gained as an Officer. The people are great as well. This is all due to Orion working diligently to find that great match. I have already recommended Orion to a few of my buddies looking to get out in the next few years and will continue to do so." - John Kowalski, Unit Leader, Nestle Waters
