Talent for Good provides comprehensive on-the-job Salesforce training, consulting training, and experience. It is a great fit for those without relevant prior work experience or a four-year degree. However, it is recommended that applicants familiarize themselves with Salesforce and the typical administrator skills to understand the ecosystem and the role to best articulate what transferable skills and experiences they bring to the position. Talent for Good will provide the training to master these skills, but candidates should demonstrate an eagerness to commit to this career path and an aptitude for learning.
Talent for Good cohorts range from 8-20 apprentices, which provides the opportunity for collaborative group learning as well as individual time and mentorship.
Talent for Good participants will learn Salesforce system administration and will become certified System Administrators within the initial training phase of the apprenticeship. Apprentices will also learn the higher education and nonprofit industries, including organizational strategies, general operating principles, and common Salesforce tech stacks for these. In addition, apprentices will be given the skills necessary for Salesforce consulting, including best practices for consulting methodology, implementing, and supporting Salesforce for clients. Apprentices must achieve a second Salesforce certification within 6 months. Most Select the Business Analyst certification which aligns with our training curriculum.
