Fortinet FortiVet Program | Interview with Jay Garcia | Veterans Careers in Cybersecurity:
Fortinet FortiVet Program | Cybersecurity Skills Gap Training:
Fortinet’s Stephan Tallent sits down to discuss our FortiVet program and how organizations can benefit from filling open cybersecurity roles with highly skilled veterans to help close the cybersecurity skills gap.
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:
Related educational guidance
Resume review and revision
Circulation of resume among Fortinet and our partners
Military to civilian transition guidance
Program certificate of completion and recommendation letter
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.
