What is Salesforce?
Salesforce is a cloud computing service as a software (SaaS) company that specializes in customer relationship management (CRM). Salesforce's services allow businesses to use cloud technology to better connect with customers, partners and potential customers. The software has become the number one choice for customer success and helps businesses track customer activity, market to customers and much more.
The UKY SFC will provide students with individual customized learning paths, access to industry experts and potential employment. Students can take on careers in marketing, sales, and technology. Each role provides these new professionals a way to put their Salesforce skills to use and develop their careers. We do this by bringing professional-level content right to them - preparing students for today’s data-centric careers.
Advisor Christine Wildes who has years of experience working in Salesforce said, “Exposure to Salesforce can help students understand the potential of a career in many industries. By the year 2022, Salesforce is predicted to create over 3.3 million jobs worldwide that will require relevant Salesforce skills. There is a huge demand within the workforce for individuals with such skills, which equates to excellent starting salaries and tremendous growth opportunities.”
