Wow, beginning of April already - how quickly this year has gone! This also means that final year projects and dissertation deadlines are looming. I remember that feeling well, despite it being 5 years ago! And once submitted, the ever burning question that everyone seems to ask is “what are you going to do next when you graduate?”

In an ideal world, the answer is to start working, earn money and to build experience that will hopefully lead to a successful career. But is it that easy for current grads? I can remember spending countless hours applying for jobs because I did not have a clear direction as to what I wanted to do as a career.

Turning back the clock, if I had been given the opportunity to work for a Platinum Salesforce Partner, who would aid in forging a career in Salesforce development and consultancy - I would have snapped it up!

However, my degree was not in Computer Science or Software Engineering and I haven’t a clue how to write code! So for those of you who do and and have knowledge of Java, .Net or object orientated programming, then these are transferable skills to use within Salesforce development. And you are on the right track for our Graduate Training Programme!

What to expect from our Graduate Training Programme?

Our Graduate Training Programme is focused on enabling you to become a first class developer and consultant, introducing you to a wide variety of interesting projects and enabling you to take on positions of responsibility early in your career.
