8 Steps to Become a Salesforce Developer

 Do you try to turn into a Salesforce Developer? It is safe to say that you are stuck on what steps you should take?

In light of my broad educating and improvement experience here are the 8 stages to landing your first position as a Salesforce Developer:

1.  Be a Strong Salesforce Admin

Cement your Salesforce Admin knowledge! I recommend spending 3 months to study for and pass the below 5 certifications.

  1. Salesforce Certified Administrator
  2. Salesforce Certified Advanced Administrator
  3. Salesforce Certified App Builder
  4. Sales Cloud Consultant
  5. Service Cloud Consultant

There are tonnes of resources and testimonials on Youtube and Google that you can leverage.

2. Make Salesforce Personal → Run Your life on Salesforce

Exploring and modifying your Salesforce organization ought to become as common and simple as exploring and tweaking your iPhone's settings. To get familiar with Salesforce, use Salesforce for your own necessities. Is there something explicit you can utilize Salesforce for? 

Could you utilize Salesforce to monitor your requests for employment? Each request for employment is an Opportunity that you are attempting to close. The organization you are applying for is an Account and individuals at the organization that you are connecting with are Contacts. 

What about additionally following your visits to your primary care physician/specialist as an Activity task? On the off chance that you need to make it a stride further-would you be able to utilize work processes, measure developers, triggers to robotize something (i.e circling back to a meeting)? 

The more highlights of Salesforce you utilize the more you will see the value in Salesforce and simpler it would be for you to find a new line of work. You would learn Salesforce even without acknowledging it.

3. Pass the Platform Developer (PDI) Certification

It is essential for you to pass the Platform Developer Certification because it will help to make up for any lack in your Salesforce Development experience. Although some of the material on the exam is out of date (as it primarily focuses on Visualforce) you should still pass this Certification – plus, it will demonstrate your tenacity to learn.

4. Pass the Scrum Master Certification

When you join a project you should know the key terms used in an agile project such as backlog, sprint, stand up meetings. You can ace this certification from Scrum.org after 2 days of studying. Also, the exam is open book. This certification should decorate your resume.

5. Join Your Local Salesforce Developer Community Group

You may feel threatened by other more experienced Developers, however don't stress. Since the Salesforce Trailblazer Community helps each other you will be propelled and guided by individual Developers. 

Begin fabricating a neighborhood companion organization of Salesforce experts by going to your first Trailblazer Community Group. Find out about their Salesforce venture: how could they secure their first position? How could they learn Apex? Likewise, did you realize that enrollment specialists commonly go to the Developer meetups? So this is a chance to figure out neighborhood openings and get your inquiries replied and enrolled!

6. Get on Salesforce StackExchange

The Salesforce StackExchange is the best resource to crowdsource the community’s help on your specific Developer questions, even if, initially, the questions discussed on the forum will be far beyond your expertise.

Still, bookmark the Salesforce StackExchange and get in the habit of logging in once a week, seeking an opportunity to ask a good question (not an easy task but you can do it. I did it!) and getting to 100 reputation points.

7. Find a Technical Mentor

It very well may be a test to become acclimated to composing code, and simple to feel stuck and overpowered in the event that you don't come from an IT or coding foundation. That was the situation with me! A ton of the coding ideas probably won't bode well (stand by, what is an Exception? In the event that it is a mistake for what reason is it called an Exception? Isn't being Exceptional expected to be a decent thing?!). 

Everything will begin clicking solely after a half year. The key is to endure these underlying a half year until you become accustomed to Apex, LWCs and Salesforce all in all. Keep up your Salesforce force! A hopeful Developer should track down a specialized tutor to defeat obstructions. This individual will clarify the errors in your code, how to accomplish higher and better code inclusion or how to troubleshoot your code. 

How would you discover such a tutor? You could glance in your neighborhood Salesforce Community (point #5), or you could look on Upwork. On the off chance that you are keen on perceiving how to do this bit by bit look at my Youtube video on this point.

8. Apply to Jobs & Track your Mistakes

Have you been to prospective employee meetings? In your own Salesforce organization monitor every one of the meetings you have had; for each meeting, set out a Freedom record, and in the Activity related rundown, record every one of the inquiries that you were posed, what botches you think you made and how you could improve. Assuming you're searching for assist with the meeting, look at 30 of the top inquiries questions and replies! 

The excellent thing with coding interviews is that it is a goal interaction; hence, you can determine what your shortcomings/holes are, so you can chip away at them (utilizing Trailhead, people group companions or Googling), and improve on your next meet. 

You will be astounded how much better you will get before long. Zero in on questions that you addressed inadequately. Work out the response for those inquiry and practice it so you answer that question much better at the following meeting. By following your errors and making gradual upgrades you will end up being an alluring applicant exceptionally quick.

If you aspire to become a Salesforce Developer, I hope that these 8 steps help you towards getting your first job as a Salesforce Developer.
