Your experience during the 6 weeks training..about the tools and project

I had been hearing that tech is the new oil but I was very scared of coding, left to me- anything tech involved coding, until I stumbled on HeelsandTech, a platform that helps people transform into tech which necessarily doesn’t require coding. It made me happy and I was inquisitive. So, I paid for the BA class and it started.

The training was enlightening, there were a lot of tools to explore, many of them I had never heard of before and it was so nice to know that tools like that existed. I love challenges, so I was happy to participate and learn a lot during class activities. The project we worked on was eye opening, I’ve seen websites but I’ve never really known how it comes to play. So, going through the entire process one after the other was such a delight.

About your trainer

Our trainer, was so calm and patient. She doesn’t mind going over something over and over again, you must understand it. She carries everyone a long. She explains well and made the whole process seamless for us. She is very good too, she knows her onions and she’s very informed. She knows her job and I’m definitely aspiring to be like her. She’s fantastic.

About Heels and Tech

I came across heelsandtech while I roamed the streets of Instagram. I loved how she made delving into the tech world seem so easy and her focus is more on ladies. First thing I did was to join the telegram group and also joined a few webinars and that was it, I remember telling her I did not want anything that has to do with coding (lol). Her platform gave me the push I needed. When courses came, I registered for the CRM (Salesforce) course, still considering to be a part of the BA training as well. I have a strong believe that no knowledge is a waste.

A little about your background

 I’ve been working for several years as an Engineer in a leading oil and gas company.
A need to make a career switch got me interested in Business Analysis. In the course of my research,  I stumbled on the BA training offered by Heels and Tech. 

Your experience during the 6 weeks training..about the tools and project

To be honest,  at first my expectations weren’t so high, considering the fact I knew practically next to nothing about the subject.  But I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised. The course structure was very well thought out to cover key BA concepts. The instructor was so patient and broke down the concepts in a manner that even a novice would understand. 
Also, the icing on the cake for me was that we worked on an actual project that brought the BA concepts to life. I am confident to say I am ready to hit the ground running and begin my career as a Business Analyst.

Heels and Tech is doing a great job in organizing this training. I would definitely recommend this training to others

Oluwakemi - Ogun State, Nigeria

A little about your background

Her post on mindset pushes me to go on when I feel tired (I do feel exhausted sometimes)

Wosilat - Abuja, Nigeria

A little about your background

The only job I have known/done is being a teacher and I also bake (that’s something I am passionate about). I always had a flair for tech related things, but I always shoved it aside because I thought it was going to be difficult making the switch and another thing that stopped me was that I  did not know where to begin. But thanks to heels and tech, I joined the telegram group and the rest is history. I am looking forward to when I will land my first tech job *dancing*.

Your experience during the 6 weeks training..about the tools and project

My experience so far has been eye opening, phenomenal and interesting. I am not surprised I enjoyed my training, because when I put my mind to something I believe I can achieve it with the help of God. Salesforce is a Customer Relationship Management tool( there are others) and CRM in a lay man’s term helps to manage a company’s customer data. 
The interesting thing is that there is a free platform for you to learn all you need to know about the Salesforce where you learn hands on, but taking the course has taught me more than I would have learnt on the free platform, because you are learning from people who are already doing it. 
I have learnt to;
  • Unlock user accounts or resetting passwords when they forget their passwords.
  • To add Single sign on(SSO) and two factor authentications when requested.
  • Fixing data records that have been set with record types.
  • Import leads and contact.
  • Deactivate users due to their departure from the company or transfer.
  • Reassigning roles and profiles etc.
I will use Facebook as an example, when you forget your password it a salesforce admin that resets it and a whole lot of other things.

About your trainer

 My trainer is a rare kind of person. He is extremely patient, for a beginner like me, he has taken his time to bring this whole thing down to my level and made it easy to understand. He is an exceptional instructor and also very knowledgeable in his field. Learning under him has been worthwhile.

Finally about the renewed mindset

Covid 19 has brought about a lot change in the world, I said to myself there is no better time to start this than now. I also want to be a part of the women in tech. 
I won’t forget to say thank you to Bisola for this platform and hopefully someday we will make you proud.
