  • Why Should I Follow a Salesforce Career at all?

    Salesforce has been named the #1 CRM Provider consistently over the last few years. The yearly IDC Study proves it over and over each year. This means, there are more and more Salesforce Customers requiring skilled Salesforce knowledgeable employees or contractors to support the demand.

    Plus, Salesforce has built such an incredible network of support in any shape or form which makes working in the Salesforce ecosystem even more exciting. If this isn't convincing enough… ;)

  • Would Salesforce actually be a good fit for me?

    The Salesforce eco system offers many different types of job roles, such as System Administrator, Developer, Consultant, Business Analyst, Product Manager, Trainer, and many more. What is important is that you make yourself familiar with the types of jobs and what skills they require.

    Take this and compare to your personal preferences. For example, do you like to support others with daily requests like a System Administrator does? Or do you like to sit down and discuss strategies and options like a Consultant does?

    Our Salesforce Certification Guild is designed to help you get familiar with the entire Salesforce ecosystem, infrastructure and of course the system itself with lot's references to hands-on activities. This gives you the perfect baseline to make a decision whether you want to further pursue a Salesforce career.

  • Isn't the Salesforce Career Market oversaturated?

    It may feel that way sometimes. But no, not at all. Quite the opposite. Salesforce is continuously growing their customer base each year and with this the demand for Salesforce professionals. Salesforce Job Roles come in different forms and names. So, don't get put off, carefully read through the job descriptions. You'll notice that many ask for the same thing just in a different wording.

  • I don't have a technical background. Can I still get a Salesforce job?

    You absolutely can! The Salesforce Platform is set up in a way that you do not have to have any single coding or tech experience to work with the system. It has a very intuitive interface and point-and-click setup features to configure most common business requirements without ever having to touch any code. And for the more IT related elements like security settings, that's what the IT department is for. ;)
