Maria enrolled in Supermums Salesforce Admin Course in 2021 after feeling unhappy, overworked & underpaid in her career in Civil Engineering. She has since gone on to land her first role as a Salesforce Admin been promoted to Application Development Senior Analyst, and achieved a higher paid salary, more flexibility & more work-life balance.

 

Maria decided to upskill and launch her Salesforce career because… 

I previously worked as a Civil Engineer for five years. This career didn’t offer me the career progression or the salary I was looking for and it was quite stressful so I decided to look elsewhere. My partner worked as a Salesforce Technical Lead and during the pandemic I got to learn more about his role and the potential career opportunities. I carried out research online about Salesforce and asked some questions to the trailblazer community and Supermums was recommended to me.

 

Maria decided to upskill in Salesforce Admin with Supermums because… 

I decided to book a call with the Supermums team to find out more. The call helped me learn so much more than just reading online. I made my decision that day as the course seemed really well structured and this was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to learn alongside other people whilst I was training. With Supermums I was able to learn with others as well as get hands-on work experience and have a weekly study plan. I felt part of a community right away with Supermums. I absolutely loved the course. The course accelerated my desire to achieve my certification and get out of an unhappy workplace.

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

I was concerned that a lot of employers wanted experience when applying for Salesforce role, but I was able to use my home work and practical work experience from Supermums as an example of the practical work I had done. The course gave me confidence again which I had lost in my other job. I was able to get my certification within 3 months and I landed my first job within an agency in Manchester. Being part of the Supermums course gave me the badge to help secure the interview, as it was a reputable training brand. I was getting really great feedback from prospective employers.

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

I now work at Accenture as an Application Development Senior Analyst as part of the Salesforce Team. One year on I now I hold three Salesforce certifications. I am in a much happier place and I enjoy waking up on a Monday and starting work. Within one year I have increased my salary by £10,000 and I am certain that this is the direction I want be doing. I was after flexible working to enable me to build a family in the future and having a Salesforce role will enable me to achieve this as I can work from home most of the time. I also get the support that I need from my employer.
