Day in the Life: Bruna, I needed to learn Salesforce to support my Marketing role
Course: Salesforce Admin Course
Job Title: Marketing Cloud Account Executive and Sales Specialist
Lives: United Kingdom
Bruna decided to upskill and launch her Salesforce career because..
I was working for a start-up technology company in Italy for four years while living in Barcelona, and then their product took over Brazilian market. While I had a lot of freedom working with them, as soon as the business grew, they demanded a lot of travel to South America. As a Mum of two girls, I found it really hard travelling for a week to 10 days at a time. I needed a change.
I had a background in sales and marketing and wanted to gain more knowledge of CRM technologies. I had no idea where I wanted to go with this, but I knew a little about Salesforce. I thought the admin course would be a good start as I need to learn the foundations.
When I started looking at courses, they required me to go to London for a week at a time, and I couldn’t do that. When I found the Supermums course, it was a light bulb moment because of the flexibility of the course and the remote learning.
Bruna decided to upskill in Salesforce Admin Course with Supermums because..
The Supermums course was exactly what I needed: the flexibility, doing the webinars once a week and the homework, talking to the other mums – it was great. It also gave me a great foundation in being confident and to know that I will have a solid pitch by the time I am doing a sale and approaching a client.
I was still working at my company at the time, so I missed a few webinars, and I just organised myself to make the time to finish the course. It opened so many possibilities for me, that it is difficult to explain!
It’s amazing when you start to see the Salesforce ecosystem. There are so many things you can learn and do, and the Admin course was just the beginning for me.
Bruna was able to launch her new Salesforce career successfully because….
While I was doing the Admin course, I searched for Salesforce Partners to understand what it would be like to work for them and set up a platform for other companies. One of our mentors mentioned Marketing Cloud in a webinar, and it sounded interesting. When I was looking to change roles, I worked with my mentor as well as my Trainer who lived in Barcelona to find a job.
I found a Salesforce position here in Barcelona that required Marketing Cloud experience. With the help of my Supermums mentor and trainer, I applied for the job, and although the process was three months long, I got the job.
Bruna has now successfully achieved a Salesforce career that offers her..
I am now a Marketing Cloud Account Executive and Sales Specialist for Salesforce. I can’t believe how fast the Marketing Cloud part of the business is growing.
I work from home. We have an office here in Barcelona but have the flexibility to work from home since I predominantly work with clients. I do a lot of demos as part of my role, so although I’m working from home, I’m never alone. I set up my agenda, I drop the kids at school, try and schedule all of my meetings before 3pm so that I can pick my kids up from school and spend some time with them, and then I get back to my work.
I take care of both the Barcelona and Portugal markets, so I travel every two weeks, but I concentrate the meetings into one or two days, so it’s easy to do and I’m not spending too much time away from the kids. This is something that Salesforce prioritise: they say family first. It’s not business first, it’s family first. For Salesforce, it’s in their DNA.
