Recruiter Spotlight - Kerry Miller

For this spotlight, we spoke with Kerry Miller, a Recruiting Team Leader in our Cincinnati office.

Kerry Miller served in the US Navy for 14 years. Kerry started as an Administrative Assistant in the Virginia Beach office nearly 6 years ago. She has been promoted multiple times to her current position as the Recruiting Team Leader in our Cincinnati office.  

What is most rewarding about your job - what makes it all worthwhile? Finding and assisting Active Duty service members that are approaching their transition and may be planning to take a lower paying job to hold them over before they contact Orion Talent. I am able to match them with higher paying jobs that meet more of their requirements. Giving them jobs with financial stability where they are able to support their family.

What advice do you have for prospective Orion candidates? The best advice I can give candidates is to interview for everything that is offered or that comes your way. There is no harm in interviewing for jobs. I remember a sharp candidate I was working with that told me he didn't want to interview with a certain company. I knew he would be a perfect fit. He ended up interviewing and accepted the position with a salary over $70k.

What is on your wish list for the next 10 years with Orion?  Orion Talent as a whole works together to reach as many candidates as possible. In 10 years, I want every military service member coming out to know of Orion Talent.

What has been your proudest moment at Orion?  I received an email from a colleague concerning an opening they had with a Chicago based company. This was a unique job in a special niche, and I had zero doubt that I knew the perfect candidate. I called the candidate and discussed it with him. He applied, and within 2 weeks, had been offered, and accepted the role. It was a perfect fit! When things just fall perfectly into place like that, that is when I really appreciate how rewarding the job is.

Where is the best place you’ve traveled and why? In my time in the Navy, I was able to spend a few years in Rota, Spain. There was always something to do, but the people and the food were the best part!

Tell us something that might surprise us about you? I have a daughter who is currently a sophomore at Washington State University.  She is majoring in Communications and wants to be a Recruiter.

What was your first job? At age 14, I started working on a corn farm, picking corn by hand. I would walk down the corn aisles and pull the top of the corn off. I would get on the bus at 3 am and got dropped off at 5 pm every afternoon. Almost every child in my town did this during our summer breaks!
