How does it work?
The referring individual completes the external referral form online via the Orbis careers website to include all pertinent information.
Orbis Recruiting Team will contact all qualified referrals and align them to available positions that suit their background and expertise in the applicant tracking system. If there are no current positions that are appropriate for the referral, the resume and information will be kept active in the database for potential future roles.
A referral connection between the referring individual and the referral will be active for a 6 month period.
If the referral is hired to the targeted referral position, or a similar position within the Federal Cyber Program, within 6 months from the original referral, the referring individual will be eligible for the reward.
If there was a duplicate referral, the referring individual who submits the referral first will receive credit for the hire. The Orbis Recruiting Team will verify submittal dates and times in Orbis’ applicant tracking system.
