Salesforce Bootcamp Part 1 - Make Your Own Experience

Salesforce Bootcamp Part 1 - Make Your Own Experience

Get Started Here With Mike Wheeler's Salesforce Career Success Bootcamp - Grow Where You Are Planted Success Pack.

This course is the first course of my Salesforce Career Success Bootcamp Series of courses - there are 11 total courses in the Bootcamp Series. 

This course, the Grow Where You Are Planted Success Pack, is intended for someone that is trying to land their first Salesforce job and have been told that they lack the appropriate level of experience. No certification or prior Salesforce experience is required. 

I surveyed my students to find out what the biggest challenges were that they faced in launching their own Salesforce career. The most reported obstacle to starting a Salesforce career was a lack of experience. I created this Salesforce Career Success Bootcamp Series to empower you to 'Make Your Own Experience' rather than passively waiting for someone else to bestow your first Salesforce job randomly.

These courses are available on-demand and you can go at your own pace, take them multiple times, and reference them at your convenience.

In this first course, the Grow Where You Are Planted Success Pack - I teach you how to use Salesforce in your existing job, your household, and/or your current job pursuits in order to start gaining relevant experience that you can add to your resume and speak to in job interviews.
