How to Interview Military Job Seekers


Orion offers a variety of way to recruit veterans, but our most popular method is a Hiring Conference. An Orion Hiring Conference is your chance to interview the best military job seekers, selected specifically for your open positions. You will be presented with prescreened, qualified and suitably matched veterans that are interested in your available opportunities.

You will interview up to ten candidates in a single day, all in a private and professional interview setting. We carefully select our hotels to enhance our clients' experience, and you will enjoy free parking, a full breakfast each morning, and complimentary cocktails in the atrium each evening. The afternoon prior to interviews, you will have the opportunity to familiarize the candidates with your company and the position(s) for which they will be interviewing (highly recommended but not required).

Throughout the conference you will receive personalized attention to ensure the best in customer service, including insight on the transitioning military candidates, and advice on the most effective hiring strategy. Our goal is that our candidates will have completed the hiring process and accepted your offer within 21 days of attending the conference.

Have some questions about how a Hiring Conference works? Check out our FAQ below:

How is an Orion Hiring Conference different from a job fair?

An Orion Hiring Conference is very different from a job fair. You will be conducting one-on-one interviews with prescreened, qualified, top-tier military candidates, matched with your opportunity, location and salary, all in a private interview suite.

What is the cost to attend?

There is no cost to attend, other than the hotel suite for your stay and to conduct interviews in. You will pay a fee for each candidate you choose to hire, according to the fee agreement you have arranged with your Orion Account Executive.

Do I need to get a hotel room?

Yes. Our conference hotels offer suites with a quiet, professional location to interview candidates. A private room prevents the distractions and noise found in the common areas of the hotel, and sets a good tone for the candidates that your company is serious about hiring. Once you decide to attend, we will make your reservation for you under our reserved (discounted) block of rooms.

What kind of candidates will I interview?

After identifying your hiring needs, Orion's Recruiting Team will actively recruit qualified candidates for your openings. Our conferences are by invitation only and we invite only those candidates that are a qualified match for the positions for which we are hiring. Our candidates are generally available to begin within the next 90 days.

Do Orion Hiring Conferences work?

Yes! Most clients make between 1 and 5 offers within 21 days of a hiring conference.
