Day in the life: Fermisk: Career Break to Salesforce Admin – Working remotely and during school hours to support her family life
Course: Salesforce Admin Course
Job Title: Salesforce Administrator
Works: Blueprint for All
Fermisk, after being made redundant in 2022, decided to take a career break and spend some great quality time with her children. When she did decide to return to work, her husband recommended she look into a career in Salesforce after using it in his workplace. She found the Supermums Salesforce Admin Course, and after seeing the work experience Supermums offer alongside the training, signed up straight away. She started the course in September 2022, and by December 2022 had been placed into a non- profit organisation for her Salesforce work experience. By April 2023, she had completed the training course, was put forward by Supermums for her dream job, and was offered the role within weeks.
Fermisk decided to upskill and launch her Salesforce career because…
‘I had been working full time for many years in a traditional work environment, and so after my career break I wanted to step away from that, and find something with more flexibility around working from home. That is what initially sparked in my interest in Salesforce, and then after finding out about Supermums, and seeing all of the Supermums alumni that were now working in flexible, work from home careers in Salesforce, I just had to give it a try.’
Fermisk was able to launch her new Salesforce career successfully because…
‘Supermums gave me the work experience I needed. The training was amazing and it fit perfectly with my work/life balance, and the hours around when I look after the children, but the work experience was what really pushed me forward in my new career. I started the training in September 2022, and then finished in December 2022, and just days later the Supermums recruitment teams allocated me to a non profit organisation for my work experience. Once I had finished my work experience and the training in April 2023, Supermums put me forward for the role I’m in today. I got an interview straight away and landed the role, all within 8 months from start to finish. The Supermums recruitment team help you from A to Z; from updating your CV, your Linkedin profile, your interview skills – and they give you interview questions to help you every step of the way.
With Supermums, you get the full package. You get the training, you get the work experience, and then at the end you even have a recruitment team to find a job for you! Supermums is the perfect way to launch a new career as they really do help you in every step of launching your new career.’
Fermisk has now successfully achieved a Salesforce career that offers her…
‘A much better work/life balance. For years, I was working full time, 9 – 5, and I had no time to spend with the kids. Now, in my current role, I work the perfect hours for me – 9am – 2pm, 4 days a week and it gives me the flexibility to now spend time with my children, and do anything I want! My only regret is that I didn’t look at doing this sooner, and I spent years in a career where I wasn’t fulfilled, but spending most of my time.’
