Certifications are only part of it, E2E (implementation) project experience is essential, if you plan to go into industry then it would be ideal to align to one in order to enhance your market specialization. Additionally, if you diversify your platform expertise (sales, service, cpq, communities) or expand your marketing application knowledge (pardot, marketo, etc) your post consulting opportunities will be more favorable. I’ve been working with SF 12 yrs; 6-Industry & 6 consulting, happy to chat if you’ve got any additional questions. Good luck!

If you want to chat in more detail you can message me at ddigital418@gmail.com. I was with ACN prior to D and would be happy support in any way I can. (We need more SF resources in functional & technical capacity across all the firms to support client demand)

D1 - consulting, allows for cross market & cross application exposure and development (my focus is technical, data & solution architecture, to support alignment across multiple functional work streams). Consulting affords me unlimited potential to build and expand my knowledge base, share & define best practices in (force.com) platform development in a variety of challenging and interesting ways...the opportunities are unlimited and enjoy the variety (from proposal to implementation). Hope this helps!

In general, what are your thoughts around engagement management vs product management? I’ve found countless YouTube videos explaining product management, career opportunities, and crazy comps, but very little when it comes to engagement managers. Would love to hear your take on the better of the two career paths (especially in terms of TC, as well as work/life balance) full disclosure- I’m an engagement manager now and having a hard time defining a career track/development opps

Hi All, I recently interviewed at Amazon and Google for software engineer and passed both interviews. I have an offer on the table from Amazon but with Google I am officially in team matching and my recruiter tells me that the queue is pretty backed up now and it can take a long time. My question is should I take the Amazon offer now or decline Amazon and hold out for Google? I have heard that Google has better wlb/benefits. But I'm scared to decline Amazon without a guaranteed job offer.
