Deloitte this week announced that it has now trained over 1,000 students in its Salesforce Bootcamps through the Deloitte Salesforce Digital Academyhosting over 30 bootcamps at colleges across the country to provide students with a foundation in Selling power technology and an introduction to the world of consulting.
Deloitte launched the DDSA program to give enrollees the opportunity to explore Salesforce-related careers, prepare for Salesforce certification exams, and learn the skills required for entry-level jobs in the field, according to a release from Deloitte. hurry.
“A few years ago, Deloitte recognized a gap between students looking for day one job readiness in business and technology careers and the growing need for talent with Salesforce smarts, and so we developed a non-traditional learning opportunity through Salesforce Bootcamps, with a goal of having a huge impact by the end of 2021 and beyond,” said Harry Datwani, Principal, Deloitte Consulting LLP. “We exceeded our original goal – with over 1,000 students gaining Salesforce skills – and saw many of them start meaningful careers within the Salesforce ecosystem.”
DDSA offers two training courses:
- Salesforce Bootcamp: A two-part, hands-on Salesforce training where students learn the basics of Salesforce in a small classroom with Deloitte professionals, preparing them for the Salesforce Administrator Certification Exam.
- Salesforce Career Journey: An introduction to Salesforce Consulting where students can explore career paths in the Salesforce ecosystem while learning career advice and tips from professionals. Students can now apply for this virtual program which begins in February 2022.
“Before attending the Salesforce Bootcamp, I knew very little about what a career in consulting would really look like,” said Hunter Leonard Link, analyst at Deloitte Consulting LLP. “After participating, I had a clear understanding of not only basic Salesforce knowledge, but also the culture, opportunities and experiences at Deloitte Consulting. It gave me the confidence to apply and eventually receive an offer to join Deloitte as an analyst. »
