Orion’s Resources for Reduction-In-Force Air Force Officers

In continuation of efforts to meet congressionally mandated end-strength targets, the Air Force has laid off more than 400 Officers through a Reduction-In-Force Board. These Officers must separate by March 1, 2012. If you are among these Officers, Orion invites you to consider our placement services as you separate earlier than planned. We have placed Air Force Officers into corporate America since 1991 and understand that transitioning from the military can be stressful, especially when the need arises suddenly. For that reason, we have created the Military Officer Transition Program.

Orion’s Military Officer Transition Program aims to help you make a successful transition by providing you with a sequential series of tasks comprised of a series of interactive webinars, self-paced instruction, and individual calls with your recruiter. You can start this program at any step in your transition. Additionally, we also have Recruiters dedicated to serving Air Force Officers who understand your needs during this time. You may also want to attend one of our many Air Force Base Visits, where you will meet with an Orion Recruiter who will evaluate your marketability, assist you in outlining your career options, and give invaluable information to begin planning the path to your next career.

Our alumni include many Air Force Officers like you who have found that their military experience has been very useful in their civilian careers. J. Fortinberry, a former Captain in the Air Force who was placed by Orion with a clean technology company earlier this year, is one of those alumni. “The skills imparted to me by the Air Force are invaluable. The leadership opportunities I was given are unparalleled in the civilian world for something of comparable responsibility and scope given my experience level. My background prepared me perfectly for my transition to the private sector, as the skills and technical aptitude I learned as a Maintenance Officer translate to a myriad of manufacturing and industrial services careers,” explains Fortinberry, “It is amazing how painless Orion has made my transition. I was expecting headaches, long searches, and potentially ‘settling’ for something less than I wanted, all of which turned out not to be the case. I had options thanks to Orion—all of them good. The apprehension and uneasiness has melted away, and the future looks bright.”

Officers not chosen for retention may be concerned about what opportunities await them in the civilian workforce. And like Fortinberry, Orion is here to not only help make your transition as smooth as possible with our many Military Officer Resources, but also to facilitate your placement in a career that meets your professional goals within America’s finest companies.
