Student Success

A moment that stands out to me from the program was during the week of interviewing for the companies we would intern with for a year to gain our experience working with Salesforce. I had four interviews, Configero, NCR, Graphic Packaging, and Southern Company. This moment was big because I had to practice and prepare for the interviews, work at my job which was Wal-Mart at the time, and prepare to take the Salesforce Certification Exam. I had three interviews in one day and had to take my exam between my second and third one. In the end, I got a great job and certified!
