March 4, 2022 [Asheville, NC] – Cloud for Good today announced a partnership with Arizona State University (ASU) for the Talent for Good apprenticeship program. Talent for Good aims to close the growing talent gap in the Salesforce ecosystem. In the next five years, Salesforce is projected to create an additional 9.3 million new jobs and generate $1.6 trillion in new business revenues worldwide, leaving organizations searching for trained talent on both platform and industry-specific solutions. With Talent for Good, Cloud for Good clients can hire newly trained Salesforce talent following an opportunity to try out apprentices during Cloud for Good implementation projects.
This new partnership encourages new and recent ASU graduates, regardless of major or previous Salesforce skills or experience, to apply for the apprenticeship program. Accepted applicants will be hired by Cloud for Good and, following a 12-week training program, deployed with Cloud for Good clients. At the end of two years of client work, apprentices are expected to transition to clients as full-time employees. In partnering with Cloud for Good and helping to launch careers in the Salesforce ecosystem, ASU joins Pepperdine, the University of North Texas, Dallas College, and Community College of Rhode Island.
“Cloud for Good is thrilled to team up with ASU on Talent for Good,” said Founder and CEO Tal Frankfurt. “As one of the largest public universities in the U.S. and, by most accounts, the most innovative, ASU is uniquely positioned to offer graduates the chance at fulfilling, remunerative careers within the Salesforce ecosystem through the Talent for Good apprenticeship pathway.”
“Arizona State University graduates more than 30,000 thinkers, innovators, and master learners every year,” said James Rund, Senior Vice President of Educational Outreach and Student Services. “As an institution, ASU is committed to excellence, access, and impact, so our values and intentions are directly aligned with the objective of the Talent for Good apprenticeship program. We are proud to offer our new and recent graduates yet another avenue in which to pursue lasting success in their professional lives and are excited to see how ASU alumni use this opportunity to fill talent gaps and better the world through technology.”
