I recently applied on their careers page but got standard response, wondering what's their criteria for screening? Do they only hire from reputed college?

    Iโ€™ve heard majority of the hires are done via referrals.

      Sucks for candidates who can't get a referral.

    1. Apply at the right time (example: right now they are still figuring out this year's number of job positions due to which even referrals can take more time.
    2. Use referrals

    Referral is the way to go. Salesforce gets over 1 million applications annually. The only way to stand out is through an employee endorsement IMO.

      This includes sales jobs as well. I stopped myself from bringing this info because it doesn't necessarily correlate to standing out. Employee endorsement at times is not enough if too many strong people are applying as well. Sometimes the way to go is having an endorsement for a job where the HR/Employee success (as we call them in Salesforce) doesn't even have to get involved in screening

    You should look at Heroku. (Salesforce subsidiary). Hiring like crazy.

    Salesforce exp and/or working with other SaaS products. If you have never used the product and work with on premise custom shit in banking that is not a direct skill match for most of our jobs...
