Salesforce referral?

Amazon / Eng cayde

Hey all,

Can anyone connect me with a recruiter at Salesforce? 6yoe at Amazon, currently at AWS.

I tried a referral via name in an application, but got auto-rejected (really!?). My referral put me in touch with a super senior recruiter who can't be bothered to send me to a recruiter appropriate for my level (which is understandable).

    Refer a complete stranger on the internet? Do people actually do this?

      I've done this, and people have done this for me. Yeah, it's fairly common. Sometimes you just need someone to put your resume in front of a human. 6 years at FAANG means nothing to shitty resume scanners.

      Also, referral isn't an automatic job. It's at best a phone screen. Plus, companies are always pushing their employees to recruit for them. It's a win win situation. Even if the person doesn't pass the phone screen, it's not like they wasted a ton of time. Phone screens are cheap compared to onsites.

    I am also looking for a Salesforce referral. I also tried being referred from someone in a higher position but all that did was get me a faster turn around on a slightly more custom rejection email. Any help would be appreciated!!

    Why Salesforce? Since we were just acquired and I have no friends on the inside I’m curious.

      I want to move to and work on the Eastside. Salesforce, Microsoft, Tableau, Grab are all on my list. I've got a follow up with a recruiter from Tableau on Friday, actually. One of your coworkers was kind enough to put me in contact with a recruiter. :) Love what I've heard about Tableau and Salesforce, actually. Culture seems good, I see growth potential, and... Eastside.
