Are you looking to give your time to a good cause or to gain experience with Salesforce development? We are an international development charity working with communities in developing countries in Africa and Asia. We are swamped with work and one of our big issues is time wasted on admin. We believe Salesforce will help us but we do not have the funds to bring in a consultant to develop our platform. 

Our website is VMMinternational.org 

Hello all,

I'm working towards my 201 certification and would like to start looking for Jr. Admin jobs.  The problem is that I've never been an Admin, so technically I have 0 years of practical Admin experience and I'm currently in an unrealted field (I'm a mortgage loan officer).  Every job posting I've read (on Indeed, Simply Hired, LinkedIn, etc) is requiring at least 2 years of Salesforce Admin experience, even for low-paying Jr. Admin or Admin assistant jobs.

It would stand to reason that before any given Admin became an Admin, they were not an Admin.  How were you able to get your 1st Jr Admin job if you got it after being in an unrelated field? (I do not have the time or resources to work for free at a non-profit for 2 years at this point in my career).
