The Veterans Program experience by our Hired Veterans
The Fortinet Veterans program focuses on helping veterans transition into the cyber-security industry. The program seeks to capitalize on the natural synergy between national defense in the Armed Services and defending critical information for businesses and government agencies.
While this is not an internship or employment program, the selection process for the Fortinet Veterans program is extremely competitive. The program provides the following benefits:
As part of the program, Fortinet will share resumes internally and with partners. This is what creates the opportunity of employment, but does not guarantee it. Every veteran is placed into a category based on their qualifications and their resume is shared accordingly. For veterans with cyber-specific qualifications, we attempt to find them full-time positions at Fortinet or with one of our partners. Inexperienced or entry-level veterans are encouraged to apply as they may find other opportunities at Fortinet or one of our partners. The Fortinet Veterans program attempts to effectively transition veterans of all backgrounds into the cyber-security industry.
Fortinet manufactures the #1 shipping security device globally, with over 4.6M devices deployed and over 6,000+ employees at 100 offices worldwide with over 5,000 reseller and Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) partners. We secure over 400,000+ clients to include massive service provider networks, government and military entities, finance, retail, and small businesses. Today, the security engineering unemployment rate is .0%, the post-9/11 veteran unemployment rate is over 3%. This program seeks to bridge the gap between supply of veterans and demand of qualified professionals in the cyber security industry.
