Salesforce Bootcamp Part 10 - Salesforce Interview Success

Salesforce Career Success Bootcamp - Salesforce Job Interview Success Pack - Win the Room & Get to the Frictionless Yes.

In this course, I share common Salesforce interview questions and best approaches of how to answer many of these. I also cover how to fully prepare for different types of interviews, whether onsite, remote, or on the phone. I provide many sample Salesforce job interview questions and also cover best approaches on how to answer these questions.

We discuss the typical job interview cadence. I also address strategies for success when faced with various types of interviews, whether phone interview, on a web-cam, or in person with a single person or a panel.

Prior to working as a Salesforce Developer and Consultant, I worked for 15 years as a Technical Writer. The nature of the work in my 20+ year career has been typically going from one contract to the next. This means that I have participated in literally hundreds of interviews.

This course is the result of learning things the hard way across those hundreds of interviews. Over the years, I learned to improve my interview performance and go from fearing being interviewed to looking forward to it. I now look at job interviews as a fun and learning experience and I can help you do the same.

Your confidence and comfort level during interviews will translate well in your favor.

This course is the tenth course of my Salesforce Career Success Bootcamp Series of courses - there are a total of 11 courses in this Bootcamp Series. This course builds upon the work we performed in the previous courses in this Bootcamp series. I recommend that you take these courses in sequential order.

Who is this Bootcamp Series For?

This Bootcamp Series and this course, the Salesforce Job Interview Success Pack, is intended for someone that is trying to land their first Salesforce job and has been told that they lack the appropriate level of experience. No certification or prior Salesforce experience is required. 

This Bootcamp series helps you expand and deepen your knowledge of the Salesforce platform. You will also come away with real-world applications that you can use in your own life – whether in an existing job, or helping you land you first, or next, Salesforce job.

Why I Created this Bootcamp Series of Courses

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.
