SXSW 2018

From Soldier to Salesforce

The biggest gap in the cloud technology space is a supply of talent. Meanwhile, thousands of U.S. soldiers return to civilian life and find themselves underemployed or unemployed because of a lack of training and opportunities. In partnership with Salesforce and veteran service organizations, we’ll discuss careers in this ecosystem of growing technology. Learn about the challenges faced, the resources available and the job opportunities for veterans transitioning to cloud careers.
