Cloud Computing Career Launch Program
A Unique Career Opportunity for Returning Veterans
The Cloud Computing / Salesforce Career Launch Program offers a unique opportunity for returning U.S. military veterans to prepare for and launch lucrative and fulfilling careers in cloud computing. With such companies as GE, Wells Fargo, Dell Computer, Hewlett-Packard, Facebook, The Red Cross and 150,000 other organizations worldwide using Salesforce to manage their sales and customer service operations, demand for Salesforce professionals will continue to far outpace supply for the foreseeable future.
Career options for Salesforce-qualified professionals are unlimited. Salesforce.com has been named by Forbes Magazine the most innovative company in the world for three years running. Its 150,000 business customers attest to its viability as an essential platform for business operations, and each offers a potential employment opportunity for those qualified on the platform.
The 16-week program consists of on-line and instructor-led classroom training, certification testing support, hands-on workplace learning experience and assistance securing a full time position with one of our employer partners around the world.
Qualification Criteria. The program is open to transitioning active duty or recently returned, honorably discharged service members, their spouses and caregivers. Aside from a few basic skills, the only requirements are a demonstrated aptitude for cloud computing, a desire to succeed, and the ability to commit 160-480 (uncompensated) hours over a 16-week period, to training, job shadowing, workplace learning and job interviewing.
Vets2Cloud is a joint venture professional services firm with the dual purpose of delivering cost effective Salesforce solutions to businesses while providing workplace learning opportunities for student veterans.
The Cost. The program is provided completely free of charge to qualifying veterans. Travel and subsistence during the 1-2 weeks of on-site training is the responsibility of the veteran. (Check to see if these expenses are covered by your GI Bill housing and travel allowances.)
Program Schedule. We are planning to run 6-8 cohorts of 15 veterans each throughout the U.S. in the coming year. Registered applicants will be notified as soon as details are available.
