How Orr Fellow Recruitment Works

Orr Fellowship vets applicants through multiple rounds of review by Fellows, Orr staff, and Board members in order to bring the top talent to our host companies. Orr takes the initial effort of acquiring and vetting applicants out of your hiring process.

1

Current Orr Fellows lead campus recruiting efforts including career fairs, class presentations, information sessions, and email marketing in order to recruit a pool of over 1,200 qualified applicants.

2

Orr Fellowship staff and Board members interview nearly 400 qualified candidates.

3

The top 200 candidates are invited to Reception on the Circle in Indianapolis. They network with Fellows and alumni and the following day are asked to submit a personal statement, essay, and personality assessment.

4

Host companies review the vetted candidates and submit their desired interviewees. The most highly requested candidates are then invited to Finalist Day in early November.

5

Orr Fellowship schedules each company to interview 8 candidates on Finalist Day, hosted at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. Offers are extended by Orr on behalf of the companies that evening.

6

Fellows begin work at their host companies soon after their graduation. December graduates start in January, and May graduates start in June.
