The "expert" answered that orienter is not a word but her suggestion of other terms does not fit for me. I am looking for a term that describes a person that provides orientation in an employment situation. We have an orientee so what do we title a person providing orientation? I can not use the term preceptor. Jae G

Orienter is not a word in the English language.  It is best to say guide, leader, or even navigator, if you are talking about one who finds a route for himself and others.

I hope this helps.
