It's a start. Helped me get on to projects. Trailhead is amazing and you can learn a lot.

Also many consulting firms sponsor these certifications, so definitely get them

Edit - also the market is hot for Salesforce, especially cpq

You probably won’t get a raise just because you have a new certification, especially if you’re not using it.

Before having any hands on enterprise experience with it, the actual process of studying for the certs is what will be valuable.

Dive into Trailhead to start learning. There are so many different parts within the salesforce ecosystem and it can be overwhelming but if you study for the Admin cert, that’s a good place to start to learn the foundational stuff and go from there.

Agreed! I waited to take mine until I got some more experience, but I was lucky to get on projects early on without the cert

focusonforce.com is helpful as well

Anyone else find it INSANE that PTO does not count towards your billable hour requirement. If you take a week off (40 hours), you’re really not getting paid time off if you have to make up all of that billable time before the end of the year.
