Salesforce Fellowship Program

The Salesforce Fellowship Program is an all-new initiative developed through a collaborative partnership between Salesforce and Hiring Our Heroes. Salesforce Fellowships allow veterans and military spouses to participate in paid 12-week fellowships, gaining targeted experience as a certified Salesforce professional. The hands-on experience offered through the program prepares fellows for a smooth transition into Salesforce careers. Participating host companies benefit by gaining access to skilled, certified professionals, while also developing a more comprehensive understanding of the veteran and military spouse job market.

Why Salesforce

The paid 12-week fellowships are completed virtually and include veterans and military spouses throughout the country who have already begun their Salesforce journey by completing a Salesforce certification. The program is designed to give veterans and military spouses a competitive edge that can lead to new opportunities. Selected fellows are matched with participating companies based on the alignment of their certifications and skills with the companies’ needs. Fellows then undergo exclusive on-the-job training and networking at their host company, gaining practical experience as a Salesforce professional.

What is Salesforce Military

Salesforce Military offers free, online training classes and certification exams at no cost for active-duty military, veterans, and military spouses. We connect our talented pipeline with partner companies to help grow, strengthen, and diversify their workforces.
