Pitching to Salesforce

Pitching to Salesforce

Whether you use their CRM software, have heard about the plethora of awards in their trophy cabinet, or have been told about the legendary fish tank at their London HQ, you'll be aware that Salesforce are one of the most innovative and progressive technology companies on the planet today, and just a fortnight ago we had the pleasure of welcoming their very own Head of Digital Strategy and Creative Director for EMEA to 80 Strand; as 27 Pearson College students presented for 60 seconds each, to prove themselves the best fit for one of five coveted internship positions at the company.

The internships offered a great opportunity for Pearson students to get a glimpse of the world of digital marketing and big data analysis, as well as gaining an insight to the idea of responsible leadership in real world practice, an attitude that is already embedded within the Pearson College Business Management degrees.

After the presentations, much discussion was had between the Salesforce representatives and five interns were eventually decided upon. On top of this, two candidates were offered one to one careers guidance from the Salesforce team, and all of the students in attendance were encouraged to network with the Directors via Social media.

The event was a truly successful one for all involved, and if you'd like to hear how our new interns are getting on, keep an eye out on our blog as we will be documenting their progress in the world of digital marketing!
