I’m a finance professional looking to get into a tech role and my company (nCino) is built on SF. What would be a piece of advice to help me stand out without a CS degree or prior experience?

Start learning. Trailhead is free. Learn the basics, create a free Dev org to act as a living portfolio. Do Superbadges, learn enough to hit Ranger status, and get your Admin Cert.

Degree doesn’t matter. After the admin cert, you can start looking for positions. I’d say also shoot to have Platform Builder 1 and Business Analyst certs. That’s a solid foundation and you’ll be able to move into a specific vertical from there.

Grabbing Sales and Marketing consultant certs would also be a good idea.

They also indicate the preferred stock price is $6 and preferred stock equity is $188k (whatever that means). They are in the middle of a new financing and valuation round.

I have several years that I haven’t had a job interview because when I needed to change jobs it was for people who knew my work personally and the offer was on the table.

Any advice on how to have a successful interview?
