Is it strictly for the tangibles (salary, prosperity, longevity, culture, etc.)?

Once you land something, will you be satisfied?

Or asked a different way:

At this moment, do you truly enjoy being overwhelmed with the setbacks, the studying, the denial of opportunities, the bruised ego?

With the realization that it’s all a part of the path forward?

The obstacles won’t stop, once you land a position.

You’ll continue:

to struggle to keep your head above water with information overload

to want to throw your laptop out the window when you can’t solve a problem

to be pushed (often by an annoying manager)

to deal with stakeholders and users with unrealistic expectations

to get denied that raise, that promotion, that project, etc.

A career in Salesforce (like any other career choice) is not all sunshine and rainbows (regardless of what Salesforce marketing shows).

The tangibles might be nice, but I don’t believe it will compensate for your personal job satisfaction over the long run.

Enjoy the path forward along with the twists, turns, potholes, and dead-ends that come with it.
