5 Ways to Find a Salesforce Job

1. Build your Network

Connect and introduce yourself to other people working in the Salesforce Community. Give yourself a target e.g.  50 new people a week and focus on certain industries or job roles that are you interested in working within. Ask to have a virtual coffee or ask if they have any job openings. Don’t be shy.  At Supermums, we recommend that our students connect with all of our Alumni who now work in a variety of roles globally.

2. LinkedIn Profile

Maximise your LinkedIn Profile to show you are open to work.  Shows your transferrable skills, industry experience, salesforce training, relevant work experience, certifications, credentials, and references. At Supermums, you can benefit from 3 x references from the trainer, mentor, and work experience partner. Share your achievements and tag your respective partners and supporters so they can like and comment to maximize exposure for you. Our Supermums Alumni have had multiple approaches, interviews, and job offers just through building their presence on LinkedIn. Check out our ‘How to maximise your profile on LinkedIn profile and get noticed’ video on YouTube.

3. Direct Approach

Get involved in attending Salesforce events virtually or in person and follow companies and people who share your values and appeal to you. Directly approach the speakers, attendees, or influencers via social media and present your CV /Resume and a tailored cover letter to them to introduce yourself.

4. Focus on your Niche

Identify end customers,  consultancies, or ISV’s that align with your industry background and sell yourself in based on your industry experience with Salesforce skills to boot. Employers like people who can speak the lingo, and understand the culture, KPI’s and processes of the target industry. Upskill in Consultancy Skills with the Supermums Course, focus on being a specialist and learn niche Salesforce products that build on the industry niche e.g. Marketing Cloud, CRM Analytics, CPQ, FSL, Mulesoft, Commerce Cloud etc.

5. Work with Recruitment Agencies

If you struggle to sell yourself well, then think about working with a Recruitment Consultant who will represent you. A recruiter will know exactly what a company is looking for so they can help you to prepare your CV and for the interview so you can put your best foot forward. It can be great having someone to support you, as they want you to win the job. Register with the Supermums Recruitment team today

I didn’t know anything about Salesforce or Marketing Cloud before, but it built upon my 20-year career. So many of my skills were transferable, from project management to marketing, design thinking, sales, and customer success. Marketing Cloud and Salesforce core products are so intricate, but you can learn the pieces that work with your background, and there’s room for everyone to learn and grow. The added benefits of the course included Salesforce specific resume and LinkedIn coaching which were really instrumental for me. I had three job offers before the end of the Marketing Cloud course because I had that coaching on how to position myself, so people were automatically reaching out to me on LinkedIn wanting to recruit me which was really exciting. ” Read Bridget’s Story

” After I earned my admin certification, I found it challenging to find my first position in the Salesforce ecosystem as I didn’t have any experience in it. I met Supermums at a Salesforce Trailhead career day and it was exactly what I needed being a mother entering the Salesforce world, so I joined the Consultancy Skills Course. One of the other Supermums who had started maybe a few months before me got a job in a company called Liberty IT Solutions. They were actually based on the East Coast and I’m on the West Coast, but they were very open to remote work, so she referred me, and I interviewed with them and was hired. I started working beginning of March this year.” Read Seema’s Story
