Day in the Life: Hindy, the work experience on the Admin course was key to me getting my first job!

Hindy is a mum of 5 from USA and living in Israel. When she first heard about Salesforce, she decided to self teach herself and got comfortable using Trailhead. She soon realised that she couldn't do it all by herself and needed the help of a course and guided learning. What really drove her to chose Supermums was the work experience project which is unique to us and really helps you get that first job in the Salesforce ecosystem.

Hindy decided to upskill and launch her Salesforce career because.. 

I’m a mother of five, and at the time my youngest was going into first grade and I felt like it was the first time in sixteen years that I hadn’t had a baby in the house, so I could consider a full-time position for the first time. 


I was introduced to Salesforce by my brother-in-law back in 2018. I was talking about going back into the workforce, and he said, ‘why don’t you check out Salesforce? There’s a lot of job opportunities, and its flexible’. I’ve never been involved in techy stuff, but I signed up to Trailhead, I looked into it to see what it’s all about. I went on to LinkedIn and right away I saw Supermums and thought ‘wow, this is exactly what I’m doing coming back into the workforce’.  


I reached out to Supermums but decided I wanted to see if I could do it myself, free of charge. I literally spent all of 2019 regretting that decision! I got really far on Trailhead but not with my Salesforce career goals, so I decided the Supermums course will definitely be worth the money, and it absolutely was. 



Hindy decided to upskill in Salesforce Admin Course with Supermums because.. 

My expectations were exceeded every step of the way with the mentors, the work experience – just everything; it was absolutely the best decision I ever made. 


The instructors were amazing. I came in having spent a lot of time playing around on Trailhead, but it is a world of a difference when someone is actually sitting and explaining to me. 


Being set up with a mentor was incredible. Any time I had a question, he was available. What really surpassed my expectations was when the coursework finished, he was always in touch, encouraging me with the job search.  I was so impressed. As far as he could have been concerned, his job was done, the course was over, but to this day, he’s still in touch with me.  


I knew that the work experience was going to give me the edge that I needed to get into the world of Salesforce. I was given the perfect match; it was very serendipitous. I was matched with a non-profit called Camp Simcha that caters to the Jewish community which I’m part of.   My project manager was incredible, and I learned so much; it was a perfect balance of guiding me while really allowing me to figure it out for myself.  


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

When my work experience finished, the non-profit decided to keep me on for a few hours a week to continue to help them with their integration and their user adoption, and it’s been a great experience. The Supermums course surpassed my expectations. I never thought my work experience would turn into my first role. What was even more amazing about that was that I’m sure that’s what got me noticed and made companies interested in reading my resume. 


When I was looking for my role after Camp Simcha, I sat with the Supermums Recruitment Team, and they really helped me clean up my resume. I then decided to send it out to a whole bunch of companies and see what happens. With this company, I didn’t think I would get a call back because the role required two years’ experience, but all the specifications were ones that I had a lot of experience in due to my work experience, so I applied anyway.  


It took them a month to get back to me, and it was quite a long interview process, but I got hired, even without the two years!  


Hindy has now successfully achieved a Salesforce career that offers her..  

I will be starting as a Salesforce Admin next week at OurCrowd, a global venture investing platform based in Jerusalem, Israel.  I’ve never been involved in the corporate world, so it’s really going to be an adventure, and I’m really surprised that I got here in a relatively short amount of time. 

Throughout the interview process, they kept mentioning that while it is a full-time job, the hours are flexible, you get given projects and then you’re able to work with them at your convenience. That was a huge plus for me knowing that if a couple of days a week I wanted to not work late afternoon so that I could be with my kids when they come home from school, I could.   


I felt like the transition from being a stay-at-home to a full-time job is such a huge transition and this was going to make it so much easier, so I’m really happy about that.
