Orion helps both father and daughter find civilian careers...Sixteen years apart!

How often can the members of a company say that they have helped generations of family veterans find their civilian careers? Orion is proud to say that we have!

In 1999, before Dwayne Williams exited the Army, he was introduced to an Orion Recruiter at a TAP class. Little did he know that this single connection would lead to his daughter finding her own civilian career sixteen years later.

After leaving the military, Dwayne landed his first civilian job through Orion in 2000, as a Production Supervisor with Office Depot. After some time in his first role, Dwayne used Orion again to find a new position.

Nearly sixteen years after his first experience with Orion, Dwayne referred his daughter, Andrea Salas to use Orion as she prepared to transition from four years in the Army.

Andrea began her job search in January of this year, and contacted Orion while she was still deployed. She began working with a Recruiter and soon learned about a great opportunity with Google. She is now a Field Operations Specialist working on Google’s Project Maps, and Andrea is enjoying her new position.

According to Andrea, “The Orion team was great -- all of my questions were answered, and I was coached and mentored throughout the interview process, which led to a job offer. I am so happy with the outcome, and very glad my dad mentioned Orion.”

At Orion, we are so honored to have had the opportunity to help both Dwayne and Andrea find rewarding careers, and we look forward to matching qualified candidates with great companies for decades to come!
