Application process

Applying for a Salesforce internship is straight forward. Before you apply, make sure you have read the job details carefully and are sure of the role you are applying for. Another handy tip is to update your resume according to the job description of the role you are applying for.

In 3 easy steps your application should be ready to submit.

Step 1: Start Your Application. 

You can choose from one of the following options:

  1. Autofill with Resume
    • If your resume is up to date, apply by choosing the first option i.e. Autofill with Resume. This will save you time by prepopulating most sections automatically from your resume.
  2. Apply Manually
    • This option will be time consuming but you can add the necessary information as you wish without automated prefilled sections.
  3. Use My Last Application
    • If you have ever applied to a Salesforce job before and your last application has up to date information, simply use the same details and proceed to apply.
  4. Apply with LinkedIn
    • If you are comfortable connecting your linkedIn account with your Salesforce application then proceed with this option.

The interviews focus on algorithms, data structures, SQL queries and design problems. A bit of behavioural stuff is asked too, apart from questions from your resume and past experiences/projects. The level of coding questions depends upon the interviewer and can range from easy to hard, with most of them being in the medium difficulty bucket.
