From Stay At Home Parents to High Paying Salesforce Careers in Under 6 Months | Ep 020

If you think you don’t have time or the energy to get into a new Salesforce career, you may draw some inspiration from the three Stay At Home Parents and their amazing Back To Work stories.

Thanks to the step-by-step, work-at-your-own-pace Talent Stacker program, Akemi Ono, Brandi Barnett, and Audrey Dye have gone from juggling children and pets to pulling down large paychecks while still have the time to be there for their kids.   

Along the way, they bust many myths about why Stay At Home Parents can’t possibly get a high-paying tech-adjacent Salesforce job. Some of these include:

  1. Employers are going to zoom in on the resume gap, and it would be too hard to account for those years away from a career.
  2. There are no transferable skills Stay At Home Parents can bring to a Salesforce role.
  3. You need a tech background to do the job.
  4. You need a 4-year degree to get the job.

This is one of our all-time favorite episodes, and we think it will be yours too!
