Fortinet Continues to Aggressively Hire Willis College Graduates

July 10, 2014

IT Jobs Available, Company Searching for Job-Seekers

Ottawa – July 10, 2014– Willis College is calling on employment agencies, settlement organizations and job-seekers to contact them immediately for jobs that are available and need to be filled.  Individuals who are willing to undergo some training will be able to fill existing opportunities at Fortinet, a Fortune 500 company that has many jobs to be filled within the next two months.

These jobs remain vacant due to the lack of properly trained candidates.  Through an innovative partnership between Willis College and Fortinet® (NASDAQ: FTNT), students will be given the training needed to fill these high level jobs in the IT sector.

The current lack of graduates and prospective employees for these jobs is partially due to the lack of information about the opportunity.  With even more jobs to be created there is concern that the jobs will remain unfilled.  The opportunities are particularly suited for:

  • IT workers with a certain level of training who wish to explore new opportunities
  • Former IT workers looking to come back to the sector
  • Newcomers to Canada with some IT training

“Fortinet has created employment for local IT workers and wishes to continue to do so.  With partners sharing the information with interested individuals, we will be able to fill the positions after a period of training,” said Rima Aristocrat, President of Willis College.

What Our Graduates Are Saying

Willis College is so flexible for students! My program allowed me to complete all my courses online. I got to choose when I wanted to attend my live lectures which was incredibly helpful around my daily life. This program made it possible for me to pursue a career as a single mom!
