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

I was working in a marketing role for EE for 7 years. I went on maternity leave for the second time, and I decided to change things up and have a look at what I was going to do with my career. I wanted a more flexible career, to work part-time, and to be able to do some remote working and work around the kids. That’s when I came across the Supermums Salesforce course.   

I had quite extensive marketing experience and had come across a few CRM’s. I discovered SalesForce which was the number 1 CRM, and the beauty of it was that you don’t necessarily need to learn coding, and you don’t need a coding background, so it seemed a lot more accessible. It’s something you can do anywhere really as long as you have an internet connection. 

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

Overseeing multiple marketing campaigns has been transferable to project management skills and also helped working on lots of different projects. How marketing campaigns, especially email campaigns being deployed has given me a head-start learning Pardot, MailChimp and Campaign Monitor. Knowing about the different KPIs for marketing has helped understand what clients will be looking for their marketing campaigns. 

Jasmine has now successfully achieved a Salesforce career that offers them..  

I graduated in July 2017, I landed a Salesforce Admin role at a Salesforce Consultancy in October 2017.  Since joining I have completed other certifications, including a Pardot certification, which is a marketing automation tool. That’s another good thing about Salesforce: you can use your background, what you’ve been doing previously, and apply that, so I’ve been applying my marketing experience to my Salesforce role. 

I have a set number of hours I work a week, with two days in the office, and a day working remotely from home. I tend to spread some of my hours into the other days of the week as well. It really does give me the flexibility I need.  

In my spare time I enjoy learning and completing more certifications, so I am now 9 x certified and got promoted to a Salesforce Consultant position.
