Asked Questions
& Resources

Welcome to our FAQ and Resource Page. Still have some lingering questions? Get in touch here.



What is Stage and Screen Careers?

We have aimed to make Stage and Screen Careers (SASC) as more than just a tech training program; it's really a career transformation company. We specialize in helping artists, especially musicians, to understand the world of technology, and specifically a role as a Salesforce Database Admin and how that can dramatically change their lifestyle while enabling them to continue their artistic career.  


Why Do We Focus on Salesforce Database Administration?

Our experience has shown that the Salesforce Admin role is uniquely suited to individuals with artistic backgrounds. It offers a blend of creative problem-solving, attention to detail, and interaction with diverse functionalities - skills that artists excel in.  And, it’s a role that does not require any formal technology experience or background. 


What are Salesforce Admin Careers and Salaries like?

Salesforce Admins have a broad spectrum of career opportunities, ranging from full-time positions in diverse organizations to independent consulting roles. Based on Salesforce's own data from 2023, the average salary for a full-time Salesforce Admin in the United States is approximately $95,000 per year. It's important to note that if you pursue a position at an arts organization or other non-profit,  salaries in the non-profit sector may be somewhat different, generally lower, compared to those in for-profit businesses.  As for independent consultants, they can typically expect to earn around $70 to $100 per hour, depending on experience, location, and the complexity of the project.


Who Are Our Mentors? 

Our mentors are the core of our program. They are Certified Salesforce Admins with multiple certifications and real-world experience. Importantly, they all are artists themselves who have navigated the journey you're embarking on, blending their artistic talents with a career in technology. 


How Does Our Program Guide You into Tech? 

Our program is designed to be your compass in the tech world. It includes:

  • Personalized guidance through self-guided online courses.

  • Hands-on experience with real-world scenarios in Salesforce Database Administration.

  • Regular mentor sessions to clear doubts and gain deeper insights into building a hybrid career.

  • A Certification exam, that will indicate an initial level of proficiency in this field. 


What Training Programs Do We Offer?

Our current program is the Salesforce Associates Certification Program, a 12-week course designed for those new to database administration. It requires a time commitment of around 10-12 hours per week. 


What Happens Next?  

Once you complete the program, we are available to work with you to customize a program of learning towards higher-level certifications within the Salesforce ecosystem.  The next certification after the Associates Certificate is the Salesforce Certified Administrator certificate.  This requires an additional commitment of another 2-3 months of part time study, and will set you up to be ready for interviews for entry level jobs as a Salesforce Admin. 

Can I do Salesforce Admin Training on my own? 

Yes. However, our program offers a unique blend of personalized mentorship from someone who is just like you - an artist-turned-tech professional, that you will not find anywhere else.  And we have found that having a coach at the start who meets with you regularly keeps you on track and motivated  -- much like working with your teacher when learning an instrument, or a trainer at a health club.   Once you complete this initial course, you may decide that you can continue Salesforce learning on your own, or continue on with us. 


Are There Prerequisites for Our Training?

No specific prerequisites are required. A basic understanding of computer systems and a willingness to learn are enough to get started.
