Willis College, High Paying IT Jobs Available

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 few 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 – at salaries $55,000+ – with benefits and stock options, 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

Online schooling was helpful in working around my schedule. It allowed me to gain the education I needed from the comfort of my own home. Despite online classes, you receive a quick response when help is needed.
