Short Course: Salesforce

If only we had a dollar for every time we were asked if we knew of any good Salesforce developers. Salesforce is running HOT, and now has almost 20% of the global CRM market. But like all trending tech, there is a massive shortage of people who truly know their Salesforce stuff. But that’s not you, right? By putting a few hours aside each week over a few months, you’ll head to the top of the leaderboard. 

Go you! One smart decision to get Salesforce certified puts you in the ‘hot property’ category. Watch as hundreds of new job opportunities open up for you.
