Program Description

The purpose of the Fortinet Veterans Program is to open the eyes of veterans to the cyber security industry with the opportunity of securing internships or employment. These positions may be available at Fortinet or one of our many partners.

The Fortinet Veterans Program focuses on helping veterans transition into the cyber security industry. This 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:

  • Professional networking.
  • Related educational guidance.
  • Interview coaching.
  • Resume revision.
  • Mentoring.
  • Circulation resumes 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 will be placed into a category based on their qualifications; their resume will be shared accordingly. For veterans with cyber-specific qualifications, we attempt to find them full-time positions at Fortinet or at one of our partners. Inexperienced or entry level veterans are encouraged to apply as they still may find opportunity 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 security device globally, with over 4,000 employees at 40 offices worldwide with over 5,000 reseller and Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) partners. We secure many clients to include massive service provider networks, government and military entities, finance, retail, and small businesses. Today, the security engineering unemployment rate is .065%, the post-9/11 veteran unemployment rate is over 5%. This program seeks to bridge the gap between supply of veterans and demand of qualified professionals in the cyber security industry.
