During the fourth week of into my journey as a GDHQ intern- an opportunity arose to explore the world of Salesforce. I checked out the company, the news of Slack being acquired, the industry and did an in-depth search of careers that required Salesforce training. I was floored! Not only was this something that could immediately assist me in the non-profit side as a customer, but if I were to become certified as an admin or higher- I could make such an impact within the non-profit world increasing efficiency and giving more time back to staff to work within the mission statement. Most organizations I've been lucky to work with juggle dozens of spreadsheets daily, from food delivery clients, to fundraising contacts, to volunteer database. Not one has the same form and function and often become tricky to keep track of.
Salesforce has become my main focus is adapting the changing world and possibly working from home.
