Three Ways to Make Veterans Part of Your Team


When it comes to recruiting veterans, there are three effective methods for candidate delivery: Contingent Fee-Per-Hire Recruiting, Military Talent Programs, and Temp-to-Perm/Contract Staffing Services. Each method has its benefits depending on your company’s goals and should be considered by any businesses looking to hire from the very talented group of 220,000 men and women leaving the military each year.  

Contingent Fee-Per-Hire Recruiting

Contingent Fee-Per-Hire Recruiting includes Hiring Conferences (not to be confused with Job Fairs), National Distinguished Candidate Conferences, Mini-Conference®, and Direct Submittal:

A hiring conference is an opportunity to interview up to qualified, prescreened candidates, all in a single day. You will have the opportunity to conduct a presentation to your selected candidates before their interviews and participate in a networking event. The average selection rate per lineup for interviews conducted through an Orion conferences is over 50%, with a hire cycle time at less than 21 days. Learn more about Orion Hiring Conferences.

Orion's National Distinguished Candidate Conferences are your opportunity to interview the very best Military Officers for positions in Engineering, Sales, Leadership Development and Operations Management. In 2013, more than 170 client companies strategically hired Orion's Military Officers through our Distinguished Candidate Conferences, with nearly 50% making multiple hires. Distinguished Candidate Conferences enable you to develop a strong pipeline of future leaders and foster strategic organizational growth. Learn more about our Distinguished Candidate Conferences.

Orion’s Mini-Conferences® are for preferred clients with multiple and high-volume recruiting needs. These private, on-site hiring events feature candidates brought to you. You will be able to complete all presentations, interviews and testing in just one day, with no travel involved if done onsite. The average hire rate from these events is 70%, with cycle time to hire of less than 5 days. There is no faster or more efficient way to fill multiple positions.

Lastly, if you are unable to attend a Hiring Conference or are time constricted with a high priority position, your recruiter can directly submit qualified candidates for pre-arranged interviews. You can conduct these interviews at your convenience without the need to travel.
