How To Get A Salesforce Job Without Experience?

Introduction

The scope of careers in Salesforce is increasing day-by-day. New clients are signing contracts every day, and because of this reason, Salesforce Administrators, Salesforce Developers, Salesforce Architects, and Salesforce Consultants are in huge demand. A person with experience in a particular sector may get a job easily. But the dilemma is for the person with no prior experience in Salesforce that he might get a job or not? The answer to this dilemma is, of course. Yes! In this blog, we are going to discuss how a novice can get a salesforce job without any prior experience.

Getting started with your Salesforce career is not at all difficult. Although it takes time to get a salesforce job at the entry-level, however, it is achievable.

Join an SF Network

“The number of people we meet does not measure the value of networking, but by the number of people we introduce to others” – Simon Sinek

There are about hundreds of groups or communities all over the internet. These groups are 100% by the community for the community. These are the easy ways to learn new features of the Salesforce platform. You may know how customers are getting engaged in Salesforce, how to get connected to your local talent who is in Salesforce and can help you get a job and answer your questions.

Joining such communities or groups also makes you a good team player, active listener, and improves your communication skills, which are actually required to get a good job. Even if you just scroll down the comments or articles posted in the groups or communities, it may keep you updated with the new trends of Salesforce which will ease your job search and interviews.

Enroll yourself in an Internship

Taking an internship in Salesforce is really a good option for a Salesforce beginner to get a relevant experience of the Salesforce work environment and eventually land a good Salesforce job. An internship is a kind of work for a particular period in which the organization assigns some tasks to the candidate every day and measures their performance. You have to keep checking all the Salesforce job openings and then you have to appear for a quick interview process to get selected as an intern in an organization.

As a Salesforce intern, you will get industrial experience, and additionally, you will get a remuneration of $16 to $42 on an hourly basis.

  • Fundamentals of Salesforce or SFDC
  • Coursework in SQL and related Database concepts
  • Strong competency in Javascript and related frameworks
  • Small projects are done in Salesforce
  • Strong analytical and problem-solving skills
  • Exceptional coding skills

Volunteers

Once you have crossed the fresher-level knowledge of Salesforce, it’s time to apply that knowledge to a real-world scenario. Volunteering is an extravagant way to empower your resume before getting a full-time job. Also, keep looking at all the job portals to keep a track of all the salesforce job openings.

Many of the non-profit organizations search for exceptional talents in Salesforce technology to help their setup or maintain their small Salesforce projects and give rise to their values in the technology.

Freelancing

Some organizations might be looking for a full-time Salesforce professional to manage their Salesforce instance. In this case, freelancing will be an add-on in your Salesforce skills. You can approach various freelance websites or even organizations looking for freelance work for them, there are also plenty of websites where you can find remote Salesforce jobs. You can find such jobs by just entering keywords like “salesforce jobs remote” or “salesforce job entry level” or “freelance salesforce jobs” or “salesforce jobs near me” on your search engine This will help you gain hands-on experience, and networking opportunities will start rolling on with this!

 Expert Tip: Only two certifications are not enough now, go for three at the max. Everyone now has a Salesforce Admin (ADM201) and Salesforce Developer (DEV401) certifications.

Get Certified

There is a magical key to get a job in Salesforce without experience, that is- “Having a certification is a qualification for Junior roles.” The junior role in Salesforce consists of 0-2 years of experience.

Getting certified in Salesforce is a big step that allows you to be recognized for your skills. Employers judge the value that Salesforce certified experts add to an organization and as a result, want to hire individuals over the non-certified counterparts. Also, Salesforce certification communicates with expertise. It tells your peers and even yourself that you know your stuff and it demonstrates you know and understands these competencies. Certification actually builds confidence, communicates expertise, and it differentiates.

What differentiates a certified Salesforce expert with a non-certified Salesforce expert?

The differentiating factor between certified and non-certified Salesforce experts is the remuneration. The average salary of a Salesforce expert with no certification is expected as $69,600, whereas, the average salary of the Salesforce expert with certification jumped to $86,850. This is a difference of $17,250 annually! Sounds big, right!

Play with Admin Playground

You can make use of the Salesforce admin account to create free web apps and to get real-time experience of working in the Salesforce environment. Admin orgs are 100% free forever and will remain active as long as you log in once every six months.

With this org, you can do the following: -

  • Installation AppExchange packages to test them and become familiar with the install process.
  • Build new features and functionality in Salesforce (like custom fields, objects, and workflow rules).
  • Create and execute APEX code (for those who are developers) including Visualforce.
  • Access the Salesforce Success Community, which provides an endless supply of Salesforce documentation produced by Salesforce and the community.

The Admin account is your portal to learning and playing with Salesforce. It’s easy to set up, so take a moment to do that before you do anything else.

Use your developer org to build a custom application that is relevant to you, and you’re excited about creating that. For example, you may build an application that tracks household chores, or that synthesize your recipes or database of your movies. You can add these small projects in your resume as an experience. That’s a great way of getting hands-on experience in building apps.

Salesforce Practices

Once you have created your Salesforce admin account on Salesforce org, it’s time to start practicing on Salesforce real-world examples. And thankfully, there are multiple resources available from which you can start your practical journey of Salesforce.

Let’s discuss some of the prominent platforms:

Salesforce Trailhead

Salesforce Trailhead is an interactive learning tool developed by Salesforce. It’s very similar to CodeAcademy in that it has modules you’ll work through using your admin org. Along the way, you’ll learn the basics of Salesforce while earning points and badges. It’s phenomenal and totally free.

Force.com Platform Fundamentals

It is the “old school” way of learning Salesforce. This large book is very detailed and thorough. It’s still an excellent resource and provides some in-depth content that will get you even deeper into the fundamentals of the application. This PDF version is updated with each of the three Salesforce releases.
