Day in the life: Tara: Left her career as a teacher to retrain in the technology sector
Course: Salesforce Admin Course
Job Title: Engineering Change Management Analyst
Works: Carrier Corporation
Tara, from the US, was a teacher in an Islamic school before she embarked on her Salesforce career. With a degree in business administration and the experience she had gained in tech from her teaching job, Tara decided to retrain with Supermums into a new career path with Salesforce.
Tara now has her Salesforce Associate certification and the Business Analyst certification with Supermums, and has just been hired by Carrier Corporation, one of the largest HVAC producers in the world, where she is working as an Engineering Change Management Analyst in their engineering department.
Tara was able to launch her new Salesforce career successfully because…
‘Of how quickly I was able to get two certifications, and learn a complex system in such a short space of time. I really credit Supermums to just how well-rounded that learning experience was. I feel like anybody can get on Trailhead; it’s something that’s really awesome about Salesforce, however Supermums gave me so much more than Trailhead would have been able to offer.
Supermums creates a safe environment for learning, one where you feel you can open up and learn without judgement, which was a huge component for me in putting myself out there. When I started the course, full disclosure, I was terrified. I like to say it was like I landed on Mars and I was trying to learn Martian. However my instructor actually legitimately cared about me and cared about my classmates, and welcomed me into a community of amazing people; a group of people who I loved spending time with every week, and all of whom were in the same boat as me in feeling lost in their career and needing a change. That environment for learning allowed me the confidence to pass my certifications and be offered a job in a very short space of time.’
Tara recommends Supermums to anyone looking for a career change to…
‘Just go for it. There’s something that made you want to try this. There’s something that made you think ‘I could do this’ or ‘I should do this’, or you already are the kind of person who thought ‘I can make this change’. So you already have some kind of tenacity and drive in you and you really just have to hold on to that and and tap into that. You can do this, and the pay off is so big.’
Since writing this case study, Tara has now also completed the Supermums Sales Admin course.
