Hi Salesforcers, i have a friend of mine who wants to switch careers from banking to tech. He of course doesn't have any tech background and has asked me about a good paying and somehow easy to learn IT job to get into. I have a very basic knowledge about Salesforce admin role but I know of someone who did some bootcamp training and got a decent job as an admin. So my question is that true? If so what kind of training can be taken and how to land a job after?

Look at entry level roles in boutique consultancies, sometimes they have own training programs or training programs at bigger consultancies.
Get started with trailhead, maybe even take admin certification and boost your LinkedIn to show off the Salesforce Skills to make sure they can be found be recruiters

Getting the first job in Salesforce is the hardest. People generally want to hire individuals with experience. His best bet might actually be a Solution Engineering role directly at Salesforce to lean heavily on his industry experience as they will teach the platform. This assumes he is a capable presenter.
