Hosting a Fellow
The Salesforce Talent Alliance Fellowship is a partnership between Salesforce and K2 to provide job seekers with an opportunity to gain hands-on work experience, fostering career growth and development in the Salesforce Ecosystem. This Fellowship offers a 12-week paid experience, which provides candidates – with a focus on those from diverse backgrounds – hands-on work experience, mentorship and professional connections.
Fellows are hosted by Salesforce partners and customers who are committed to growing their talent pipeline with strong, skilled and diverse talent. Through this fellowship, you are connected with Salesforce certified talent, and have an opportunity to highlight your organization’s commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion.

“The Talent Alliance Fellowship and process to engage has been seamless for us to get connected to newly certified Salesforce talent for our organization. It feels like we hired another team member without having to do all the hiring work! Thank you Salesforce and K2 for offering this fellowship opportunity.”
Melissa O’Connor, Operations Manager at Virsys12
