March 18, 2022 [Asheville, NC] – Today Cloud for Good announced Western Michigan University (WMU) as the latest higher education institution partner for the Talent for Good apprenticeship program. Talent for Good paves the way for new and recent graduates to secure good entry-level jobs as developers, administrators, analysts, and consultants within the Salesforce ecosystem. With this announcement, WMU becomes the first Cloud for Good client to also become a Talent for Good partner.
With the acceleration of digital transformation from the COVID-19 pandemic, many of America’s over 10 million unfilled jobs are in fast-growing sectors of the tech economy like Salesforce. Employers are currently unable to fill hundreds of thousands of Salesforce developer and admin positions, and the growth of the Salesforce ecosystem will require another 2.9 million trained workers in the U.S. in just the next 3 years. WMU joins Pepperdine, the University of North Texas, Dallas College, Community College of Rhode Island, and Arizona State University in partnering with Cloud for Good to help launch careers in the Salesforce ecosystem.
“Cloud for Good is proud to welcome Western Michigan University as a Talent for Good partner,” said Founder and CEO Tal Frankfurt. “WMU is recognized as a learner-centered, discovery-driven, and globally engaged institution, which aligns directly with the vision of Salesforce technology and Talent for Good. We can’t wait to see how WMU graduates make the most out of the Talent for Good pathway and launch rewarding careers in Salesforce.”
“WMU has embraced the challenge of strategic planning to ensure that we provide inclusive and equitable opportunities for diverse communities of learners to thrive personally and professionally,” said Ed Martini, Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning and Dean of Merze Tate College. “As we’ve seen the value of Cloud for Good in our Salesforce implementation, we know firsthand that our partnership with Cloud for Good and the Talent for Good apprenticeship program will provide WMU graduates with yet another opportunity to create positive change in both their professional lives and the world at large.”
