Part of the reason for attending the Dreamforce conference was to meet new people and discover new ideas. My partner Lily and I met up with Don Henderson, a member of VetForce and a Salesforce enthusiast working with the State of Colorado.
VetForce is a program built and sponsored by Salesforce to provide military veterans and spouses with training and job opportunities.
“Veterans and spouses embark on one or more learning journeys where they receive structured, self-paced Salesforce training, collaborate in an online community, achieve Salesforce certification, and get connected to high-demand and high-wage employment opportunities in our ecosystem of more than 150,000 customers.”
Fifty members of VetForce are in attendance at Dreamforce this year, compliments of Saleforce.
