Shanthi Sankaranarayanan

Shanthi Sankaranarayanan graduated BTech Engineering in 2005. She spent most of her career in recruitment and human resources, but it is her dream to be a Salesforce Developer. 

Shanthi explains this...

“After 10 plus years in recruitment, I needed to make a choice between Recruitment and Salesforce for my career future and I was determined to land a job in the Salesforce ecosystem.

I signed up to volunteer with St Kilda Mums in 2018 and had an opportunity to meet Jessica to become a part of her amazing team. That’s when I decided that I wanted to make the leap to become a Salesforce Developer. Although I wasn’t sure how I’d get there.

But due to unforeseen circumstances, I was not able to continue my volunteering (We’re thrilled to welcome our little princess to this beautiful world). I made a commitment to myself and started self-learning with Trailhead, and it’s been a game-changer for me. Two years of learning helped me to land in my first Salesforce Administrator Job.

Recently, I got an opportunity to become a part of the wonderful Blaze your Trail Team and am looking forward to upskilling my technical skills.”

Shanthi is working towards her Salesforce Administrator certification, and this week started an 8 week course thanks to saasguru. But the thing that amazes me about Shanthi and the other Blaze volunteer is how much they know about the platform, and how creative they can be.

Shanthi is volunteer of the week because she solved a problem for me when I got stuck. We had a problem with reporting on activities and Shanthi solved this for us.
