Salesforce career newcomers – as you know, landing your 1st Salesforce related position is always the hardest in your journey.
But think about the word: momentum
Finding and applying to that 1st position, connecting to that 1st hiring manager, getting called in for that 1st interview, getting accepted to do some pro-bono work, having informative conversations with existing Salesforce professionals, passing your 1st cert, etc.
Whatever little successes you’re seeing build upon each other, use that as positive momentum to keep going.
You might not always realize it, and some may be extremely small, but it is forward motion.
A manual water pump doesn’t produce water on the 1st pump, a merry-go-round doesn’t spin itself without some manual up front pushing, and a locomotive takes force and energy to start going.
Your career should be viewed the same way, as momentum builds on itself with time, effort and consistency.
