Are you a driven problem-solver with a passion for cloud services and technical solutions, and looking for a way to utilize your skills in a new field? The program offers several junior-level IT roles. Are you interested in a career as a Salesforce developer or trainer, for example?



For recent graduates and rising talents

Are you a systematic and ambitious future professional who is not afraid to continue developing? Move on to a job where you can utilize your education and training experience in ICT or other relevant fields. If your goal is to pursue a job in system development, database management, or even consultative expert roles, we definitely want to hear about you! Perhaps you are the next Salesforce developer or administrator!



For those with experience in similar job roles

Are you a person with work experience in the IT field and want to increase your expertise with Salesforce? Are you interested in customer systems, various development tasks, or leveraging cloud-based services? One of the following roles may raise your interest: Sales Cloud Specialist, Service Cloud Specialist, Marketing Cloud Specialist, Trainer, Consultant, or Business Analyst.


Salesforce Academy provides a unique pathway to build a career in CRM.



One key element of the training is to prepare participants to pass the highly valued Salesforce Admin certification. By carrying out the Admin certification, you’ll get a broader knowledge of customizing Salesforce, regularly configuring the platform, managing users, and looking for ways to get more out of its features and capabilities. This certification serves as the backbone of your expertise.

The recruitment training program is organized by Saranen in collaboration with Salesforce, ELY center Uusimaa (Uusimaa Center for Economic Development, Transport and the Environment) and TE services  (Labor Exchange). You can apply to this recruiting training program if you are currently unemployed or facing the prospect of unemployment, and your job search is active at Labor Exchange (TE-palvelut).

-Tuija Sihvo, Project Manager, Avaus Marketing Innovations Oy

Hakeuduin Salesforce Academyyn alanvaihtajana. Ohjelma oli minusta erinomainen kokemus; mukaan mahtui kouluttajavetoisia kurssipäiviä, itseopiskelua ja käytännön työskentelyä partneriyrityksessä. Academyn aikana suorittamani Salesforce-sertifioinnit auttoivat mittaamaan osaamiseni tasoa, ja ”sertit” ovat myös arvostettuja alan työnantajien keskuudessa.

Academyn lopussa Accenture tarjosi minulle työpaikkaa Salesforce-konsulttina ja valinta oli helppo. Ala on kaiken kaikkiaan erittäin mielenkiintoinen ja osaajista on kysyntää. Urapolkuja on monenlaisia, ja kun se omalta tuntuva juttu löytyy, on tärkeää olla myös itse aktiivinen oman kehittymisensä kanssa – kysyvä ei tieltä eksy!
