"Wittenborg aims to help students pinpoint their career paths"
It can be quite difficult to determine what career path is best for students and graduates who are currently or soon to be looking for employment or internships. Fortunately, a seminar last week hosted by Cloud Integrate's Paul Ginsberg (partners with Salesforce) presented a free platform to help Wittenborg students and graduates gain experience about Salesforce. This can then enhance employability later on.
In short, Trailhead is a learning platform that aims to assist people in identifying their career paths within Salesforce. As said by Paul during the seminar, many of these types of platforms come with a price, however, Trailhead is completely free to use. "This is a chance to shout out about it, and allow students to discover and explore something that they might not have previously considered, all with no risk," Paul states.

Paul was delighted to be invited by Wittenborg. He predicts a promising future with regards to the connection Cloud Integrate has with Wittenborg: "We absolutely loved presenting at Wittenborg. We have a good relationship with Wittenborg thanks to the Tech Job Fair we were exhibiting at back in November… it gave us an opportunity to try out our messaging as we expand and look for new recruits in the future." Cloud Integrate are currently full in terms of internship vacancies, which includes one Wittenborg student. However, students are advised to follow Cloud Integrate's social media accounts, as all opportunities will be posted there first!

Career Counsellor Sanne's idea of bringing in companies such as Cloud Integrate is a new project Wittenborg is working on to motivate students outside lectures and internal commitments. Sanne goes on to express the following: "I hope to give students a chance to meet their field of expertise without the pressure of assigned group work or written reports. These workshops, talks, seminars are not part of Wittenborg's curriculum, nor is it part of any study credit. These activities are purely aimed to enhance our students’ future perspectives." There will be more of these types of seminars to come. More information in regards to these talks will be provided in the near future.
