Career Pathway: From Accidental Admin to Certified Architect

Apr 9, 2019, 7:00 – 9:30 AM

Are you interested in hearing about what it's like to go from Admin to Architect? Perhaps you're already partway along your own Salesforce Architect journey? Or maybe you're already an Architect - we'd love to have you along too, to help share your experience! Join us for this Career Pathway presentation and Q&A!

About this event

Emily Hay started as an Accidental Admin after graduating university 9 years ago. From starting off completely unfamiliar with Salesforce, not knowing how to build a report, or really understanding what the cloud even is, today she's a Certified Application Architect - and continuing on her journey towards Certified Technical Architect.

Emily will share her story, what she's learned along the way, some tips and resources on both studying for your architect certifications as well as how to navigate the career path, and overcome imposter syndrome to become an architect. 

You don't need to be on the Architect journey for this meetup - we're happy to chat about all sorts of Salesforce certifications and learning pathways.
