Arlene's Story

  • Course: Salesforce Admin Course
  • Region: US
  • Sector: Marketing
  • Job Title: Marketing Cloud Solution Architect
  • Works: Lev
  • Lives: Los Angeles, California

After Arlene was laid off from her corporate role, she was looking for a flexible and remote job to fit around family responsibilities. The Supermums Salesforce Admin course gave her the base knowledge, then she added on the Salesforce Marketing Cloud course to really cement her knowledge in this niche within Salesforce. She has since completed 2 Marketing Cloud Certifications and works at Lev, as a Marketing Cloud Solution Architect.

 

Arlene decided to upskill and launch her Salesforce career because… 

I have 15 years experience in a corporate career in accounting, finance, market research and consumer insights. When I was laid off from my employer it gave me time to think about what I wanted to do whilst juggling a busy household. I knew I wanted to work flexibility and remotely for my family and Salesforce started popping up on my feed so after some research I decided it was a career to pursue. I wanted to do the Admin Course first, to learn and understand the basics of the CRM platform, followed by the Marketing Cloud course.  

 

Arlene decided to upskill in Salesforce Admin & Marketing Cloud Courses with Supermums because… 

Wow, the community at Supermums is super inspiring from the leadership, mentors, fellow trainees and beyond. I have felt very supported with the tools and resources to move into a Salesforce role. For example, how to craft a technical resume after a career pause and also being able to have access to my very own Marketing Cloud trail org to get hands on experience. It is very hard to gain access to this system without going through an official course like Supermums.  

 

Arlene was able to launch her new Salesforce career successfully because…. 

Off the back of the course I was able to gain 2 Marketing Cloud certifications and I landed a role as a Marketing Cloud Solution Architect at Lev, a Digital Marketing Agency. I work with customers directly and I’m currently working with 5 different clients implementing a range of products for them.  

 

Arlene has now successfully achieved a Salesforce career that offers her…  

The role offers me variety and an opportunity to learn. Day to day, I wear three different hats which includes working as a business analyst- gathering requirements,  technical consultant – designing solutions, and implementation consultant – building the solution. The consultancy enables me to work with different projects, clients, products and team members.
