WHAT: A 12-week mentoring program focused on training on the basics of Salesforce Administration
WHO: Individual artists (musicians, actors etc)
WHEN: Starting date (based on your schedule and our mentor availability)
WHERE: Online, self-guided, plus regularly scheduled mentor sessions, typically weekly.
Our mentorship program is crafted to speak directly to you: artists who want to build a sustainable and fulfilling career that combines your artistic background with a foundation in technology. During this time, you’ll be working with and guided by a mentor and others have been on this career journey, and are living that experience right now.
Here’s an overview of what to expect
Technology Industry Job Introduction: This program will help prepare you for a very specific technology role – that of a Salesforce Admin. We’ll help you understand the role of a Salesforce Admin through online materials and live Zoom sessions.
Training Roadmap and Mentorship: We will present you with a 12-week curated selection of self-guided online training modules selected from Salesforce’s free online training platform, Trailhead. You’ll be assigned a mentor (see backgrounds of our mentors here) who will check in with you on a bi-weekly basis to help keep you on track, and we will provide our own “knowledge check” tests along the way to make sure your skills are honed. Our mentors are just like you - artists/performers who have built hybrid careers combining Salesforce Admin work, along with their arts interests.
At the end of our program you will be prepared to take the Salesforce.com Associate Certification, which will be a helpful credential towards getting a job.
Community of Peers: You’ll be part of a community of like minded peers who are pursuing (or have pursued) the same path forward. We’ll introduce you to others so you can learn more about their careers and learning process.
Resume Prep and Interview Skills: We will help you build an effective resume for Salesforce roles, and provide coaching on the questions you’ll likely hear in an interview, including mock interviews with your mentor to help you practice your answers.
Job Search Guidance: Although we cannot guarantee you a job, we will provide placement assistance to help you land an appropriate entry-level technology position. Our focus is on helping you identify positions in nonprofits that need technology support, or companies that support nonprofits.
