Your Questions Answered

As a healthcare professional, I am looking for work/life balance. Can I find that in a Salesforce career?

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 the healthcare industry?

Work to increase your connections and network. Attend webinars and ask meaningful questions to get noticed. Find ways to highlight your skillset (via blogs, videos, etc.) or better yet, offer to teach others! 


Because of my background in healthcare, should I focus on Health Cloud?

Everyone must decide for themselves what they would like to pursue in the Salesforce ecosystem. While your skills and understanding of the healthcare system will make you a strong candidate to focus on Health Cloud, your skills are transferable to any vertical or company.
