Coming in at #6 is the Sales Cloud Consultant certification. The majority of the work I do in Salesforce is in Sales Cloud, and for good reason. It’s the original cloud and the most popular.
This certification is a tough one! It covers a lot of material and it’s really hard to anticipate what will be covered in 60 questions on the certification exam. This is my first exam that I relied on a study group to help me prep for. I put together a group with some other alumni from Talent Stacker, and we met once a week most weeks to review material and go over any tough spots. After going through all my other exams on my own, I’m glad that I had a couple of people to go through this journey with. As I said, Sales Cloud is huge and the material from Focus on Force covered a lot of ground, so having other people share the workload and help point out features was really helpful.
The certification is great to have, but I’m proud of the work I’m continuing to do as I get ready to enter into my second year working with Salesforce.
