  20. 20. ● Professional email spammer → Salesforce administrator ● Salesforce administrator → Salesforce developer ● Salesforce developer → Technical architect & manager ● Google: ○ Rejected 10+ times ○ LinkedIn recruiter spamming ○ Email Salesforce managers directly David - My Story
  21. 21. ● Getting an interview and passing an interview are different! ● All Salesforce resumes look the same, except for: ○ # of certifications, # of users / org size, extracurricular activities ● You can have five certifications by the end of 2016 ● Volunteer: ○ Non-profits orgs ○ Within your company! ○ Salesforce Success Community forums ○ Start a user group: admin/dev, Girly Geeks, Salesforce Saturdays ○ Start a website! ● Update your LinkedIn profile! How to get Salesforce job interviews
  22. 22. ● The goal is NOT to get the questions right - your goal is to show you’re competent! ● It’s OK to give a wrong solution – explain why it’s wrong. If you’re torn between multiple solutions, present them all with their pros and cons ● Stay up to date with your Salesforce release notes ● Do not assume the interviewer has read your resume ● Do your research using Glassdoor, LinkedIn, and Google How to pass a Salesforce interview
  23. 23. ● You have more leverage than you think! ● Negotiations are mostly between you an HR – not your team ● It’s not selfish to ask for a higher salary – it’s smart ● If you want a salary of XX, ask for XX + 10% ● A recruiter will do a better job than you. (Think NBA players and their agents) ● Employers never really need you to start immediately Salary Negotiations
