New Trailhead Coach: Learning Paths, Certification Vouchers, Job Interview Access

By Lucy Mazalon

The Trailhead platform, Salesforce’s fun and free way to learn in-demand skills, is being extended with Trailhead Coach. This is a guided path – from skills-based learning to automatic interview opportunities – for anyone pursuing a career in the Salesforce ecosystem.

Since launching in 2014, more than five million Trailblazers have taken advantage of this free online learning platform to upskill as technology evolves.

The additional support of Trailhead Coach is a continuation of Salesforce’s focus on workforce development, to close the digital skills gap and empower individuals from non-traditional backgrounds to land top jobs in tech.

The new Trailhead Coach includes:

  • Guided learning pathways: With self-paced learning on Trailhead, participants can develop the skills directly aligned to their Salesforce career goals.
  • Free certification exam vouchers: Participants can unlock vouchers for more than 18 globally-recognized Salesforce certifications to showcase skills and prove expertise to employers.
  • Automatic access to interviews with employers: Once certified, participants automatically access informational and mock interview opportunities with Salesforce Talent Alliance employers – a network of Salesforce customers and partners looking for tech talent.

The digital skills gap is a pressing issue for companies and individuals, with 3 in 4 businesses reporting that recruiting qualified talent is challenging (source: Vervoe).

“As the digital-first world continues to evolve, the need for reskilling has never been more
important. We’re proud to be leading the charge in closing the skills gap and empowering the next generation of Salesforce talent to deliver success at their companies.” – Ann Weeby, SVP of Trailhead at Salesforce.

Availability: Trailhead Coach is available to participants of Salesforce’s Workforce Partner Program, a network of organizations teaching Salesforce skills around the world, and Talent Alliance Career Cohorts, a career development program for job seekers from underrepresented communities.
