About this Episode

Salesforce created the Vetforce program to build connections between our ecosystem and the military community. Veterans and spouses embark on one or more learning journeys where they receive structured, self-paced Salesforce training, collaborate in an online community, achieve Salesforce certification, and get connected to high-demand and high-wage employment opportunities in our ecosystem of more than 150,000 customers.

Vetforce is also the internal employee resource group that fosters a strong military community at Salesforce. In this interview, we speak with James Deal, a Veteran and Salesforce employee about his transition, the Vetforce program, and how it impacts Veterans' lives.
