Salesforce is becoming a more popular career and when people start down the path they have choices to make. Will they be a Salesforce Administrator for a single company, will they be a consultant, do they want to work as a business analyst, learn to be a developer, or even a Salesforce architecht. There are so many different paths to take just in roles and then in terms of industry you can pick finance, healthcare, or nonprofits just name a few.

Niching down can become just as overwhelming as the first time you realized you needed to learn allllll the aspects of Salesforce.

Pamela Howell knew from the outset when she started her Salesforce journey that she wanted to pursue nonprofits and she is still working towards that goal. She is a student in our NPSP Training Program and currently volunteers with a Golden Retriever Rescue nonprofit based in Atlanta.
Sarah’s conversation with Pamela dives into how to find your own calling within the Salesforce ecosystem, why Salesforce is ‘learnable’ even for people who think they’re terrible at tech and building the self-confidence to make a change, even if you can think of a million reasons why it ‘wouldn’t work’.

Key Takeaways:
  • If you don’t have a college degree, doing badges on Trailhead and getting certified through Salesforce is a good way to ‘prove’ your qualifications without having to spend mountains of money going back to college
  • Thinking ‘I’m no good at this’ or ‘I’m just not a ____ type of person.’ is a self-fulfilling prophecy. If you keep telling yourself these negative stories, you’ll only ever see yourself struggling with those concepts.
  • Tweak the thoughts instead: ‘I’m not good at this yet.’ or ‘I’m still struggling with _____, but I’m learning. I know more about it today than I did last week because I’m taking steps.’
  • Volunteer in a non-Salesforce related capacity at a nonprofit that supports your passion. This will help you deeply understand their processes and real pain points before trying to introduce them to Salesforce
  • Build your network - that next job opportunity will be much easier to land if you actually know someone at the company rather than continually responding to mass job postings
