About 20 years ago, Blockbuster offered a “try before you buy” approach.
They allowed a customer to listen to a CD (yes, CD’s as in Compact Discs) before making a purchase.
It was a great model, as a customer could gain more clarity on what they were buying.
This model is applied to most services and products online now (streaming, shareware, etc.).
Sometime it’s just a sample, but enough to spark an interest.
Maybe this same approach can work for you.
By building out example Salesforce projects and solutions for potential employers to view and sample.
Providing a glimpse of what you can do, what you’ve learned, and how you’ve applied it.
It may lead to a phone call, an email inquiry, an interview and ultimately a job offer.
Companies often have resistance to making a hiring decision, so allow your work (not your resume alone) speak for itself and reduce their hiring reluctance.
You have a best-selling Top 40 hit to offer.
Potential employers need and want to listen, see, and experience it.
