Orion President Mike Starich interviewed about Orion's participation in Joining Forces

Military.com recently interviewed Orion International President and former Marine veteran Mike Starich about Orion’s involvement in Joining Forces, a White House initiative led by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden for America’s private sector to train and hire 100,000 veterans and their spouses.

Joining Forces has recently succeeded this goal, reaching a milestone of over 125,000 veterans and spouses hired, with pledges from companies to hire even more. Hear the First Lady and Orion placement Paul Andrews speak about the initiative's achievement here.

In his interview, Mike Starich praised the initiative for providing a positive hiring atmosphere for veterans. He highlighted Orion International’s involvement with Joining Forces, which includes many hiring events held at major military commands, such as Fort Hood and Fort Bragg. Starich also highlighted Orion’s achievement of placing the 50,000th and 100,000th veteran that was hired through the Joining Forces campaign.

Starich also gave advice for veterans who are seeking civilian work, specifically to translate military skill sets into civilian-friendly jargon for hiring managers, and becoming familiar with the rules and laws of the private sector work environment.
