Blue Collar Professionals

Ever think about the side effects your job will have on “Future You?” Be it physically or psychologically, the drawbacks of blue-collar jobs have workers asking themselves: “How long can I keep this up?”

But what if you could earn more money with less labor, and do it all from the comforts of your own home? Or even better, what if you could spend paid time off with your family and enjoy vacations together? Keep scolling to learn more!

Hear from others just like you!

Your Questions Answered

Do I need a degree or previous experience in the tech industry to begin working towards a Salesforce career?

No degree required! Many enter the Salesforce ecosystem successfully making $65k-$85k with the Salesforce Administrator Certification. All of the materials to understand how to configure Salesforce and pass the certification credential can be found for free on Salesforce’s online learning platform – Trailhead! 

What is the work life balance difference between working in a blue collar role versus working in a Salesforce role?

Many companies have a, “as long as the work gets done, set your hours” type of policy. You truly can live a life by design, and still help people, where you don’t have to burn yourself out working 60+ hours a week. 

How can I manage to be visible to Salesforce recruiters and hiring managers coming from a blue collar profession?

As a blue collar professional you have a wide array of essential skills – project management, customer service, problem solving, communication, and more. Though these might not be seen as “technical skills,” they are just as important in succeeding in the Salesforce ecosystem. Focus on your strengths – you bring more to the table than you know!
