If you thought that ProvenWorks is only a software vendor focused on the bottom line, you’d be wrong!

People are at the heart of what we do and giving back is a big part of our culture. When it comes to universities, we’re always looking to build a close relationship, not only as a software vendor but also working with individual students and graduates, as well as more broadly with university career centres.

Denis and Ruth, our Sales Executive and Marketing Manager, were invited to two different universities in the UK to share their career advice with students and answer questions about careers in software.

Denis headed to the University of Aberystwyth

Denis was invited to the University of Aberystwyth to talk about careers within the Salesforce ecosystem to Computer Science undergraduate students. Denis shared her role at a Salesforce ISV partner and the roles and responsibilities of four major career paths in the ecosystem including Salesforce Administrator and Salesforce Developer. At the end of the talk, there was even time for a 1:1 mentor session for in-depth discussion to follow up on questions and discussion.

Ruth visited the University of Reading

Meanwhile, Ruth spoke at the University of Reading for their Careers in Marketing week. Ruth focused on marketing within software and the Salesforce ecosystem, talking about her daily and weekly responsibilities to help the students understand what to expect in the software industry. Ruth shared actionable tips for the most important parts of job searching – the CV and LinkedIn. She shared her recommendations on how to stand out from a crowd; let us know if you’re interested in learning more!

The future is waiting!

We’re privileged to have these opportunities to share our experience and help the future ecosystem early in their career journey. Not to mention it’s inspiring to see young talent thinking about their future and wanting to stand out.

We can’t wait to see how they will change the future!
