Combat Arms Veterans—Do Not Underestimate Your Career Options

At first glance for Enlisted Combat Arms veterans, civilian career options may appear limited to those careers that are directly transferable from your military background. But the career choices for veterans with MOS’s in fields like Air Defense, Armor, Artillery, Cavalry, and Infantry go far beyond law enforcement, security, and contracting.  In 2010, Orion expanded our offerings and became the first Military Talent Firm to work with non-technical enlisted Combat Arms service members. Since then, Orion has found civilian careers for nearly 2000 enlisted Combat Arms veterans.

Our non-technical enlisted candidates are finding fulfilling careers in industries like oil & gas and manufacturing with salaries ranging from $40,000 to $70,000+. With our industry leading preparation program, we will work with you to build your resume, provide you with career counseling and transition assistance, prepare you for interviews, and arrange interviews for positions that are a match with your background, qualifications and desires.

We work with an extraordinary list of corporate clients - including Phillips 66, Google, Siemens, Plastipak and many others. Below are some careers for Combat Arms NCOs through Orion:

In addition to speaking to your recruiter, visit our Operations Careers page for a preview of the types of positions for which we are currently recruiting.

If you’re among these veterans, you should never underestimate your experience. Your extensive leadership and management experience, not to mention a superior ability to build cross-cultural relationships, make you a great pick for employers looking to add veterans to their team. You've motivated your colleagues to accomplish organizational goals and done so in intense down-range environments.

Companies are not just looking for veterans with backgrounds in nuclear, electronics, avionics, etc. They’re looking for men and women who excelled in their military field and are able to bring that spirit of innovation and perseverance so well embodied by Combat Arms veterans to their job.
