If you could give just one piece of career advice to a transitioning military professional, what would it be?

Ask yourself the question: “Do I know anyone who can actually extend a job offer and hire me?” If the answer is no, then you have to start growing your professional network. You should do this in person and online using social networking sites as part of your transition strategy.

What do you like most about working at Orion?

I love the fact that our bottom line is connecting our military heroes with real career opportunities in corporate America & giving them a ‘real world’ perspective on how to get hired.

Please share one interesting fact about yourself that you would like candidates to know.

I grew up on the Caribbean island of Trinidad, which hosts its carnival, ranked third best in the world, each year at the same time as Mardi Gras.
