blue-infinity Salesforce Academy expanding

Global demand for Salesforce innovation and solutions is increasing as is blue-infinity’s Digital CRM expertise, with our Salesforce Academy program continuing to attract key talent.

blue-infinity continues to give young talent the technical skills to kick-start their careers and announces the opening of a blue-infinity Salesforce Academy in Brno, Czech Republic. With a dedicated team of mentors focused on Salesforce solutions in Marketing Automation, we invite University students from business, IT, economics and marketing backgrounds for internships, says Daniel Urminsky, Practice Manager CEE, “The program will give students an insight into our Digital CRM expertise as well as solid work experience.”

Similarly, blue-infinity has partnered with the College of Entrepreneurship and Law to help boost students’ practical knowledge and therefore job prospects. Both undergraduate and graduate students will be able to apply for our Salesforce Academy internship during their studies.

Our Salesforce Academy program in Leiria, Portugal plan a Summer recruitment drive for their Salesforce development teams. As a commitment to diversity, we have extended internships to Universidade de Aveiro, Instituto Politécnico de Setúbal and the Universidade de Coimbra with whom we partnered for #TechChallenge2017.

António Alvim, Salesforce Enterprise Consultant on the collaboration, “Our pilot year was a success, we recruited numerous trainees (pictured) for full time positions and developed robust processes to ensure that mentors were fully available to students. This year, we will develop the trainees presentation skills and create dedicated study groups for earning Salesforce certifications.”     

One such graduate, Rúben Nunes, joined our Salesforce Academy program in December 2016 after graduating from Instituto Politécnico de Leiria and began learning about the capabilities of Salesforce solutions from a blue-infinity handbook, and Trailhead. Rúben found the team committed to practical experience, “The mentors and consultant availability, know-how and experience gave me the tools and confidence to begin his journey towards becoming a Salesforce expert.”

Seven months into the programme, Rúben qualified as a certified Salesforce Platform App Builder and Platform Developer and currently drives two projects for a leading FMCG player, and the airline industry. “Working with different organisations has helped me learn about different business processes” says Rúben.

We look forward to welcoming our 2018 intake and thank our blue-infinity team mentors for making the Salesforce Academy Program such an innovative and enriching experience. If you wish to join our Salesforce Academy, please contact our resourcing team.
