As you probably know, Salesforce is a rising star and they're creating tons of jobs all over, especially in the Bay Area, to work them but also at the huge and growing number of their customers who desperately need Administrators and Developers to help them configure and run everything. So the "feds" have realized this is a great way to get people good jobs and they're granting money to training firms to provide free training programs. This is one of those.
So if you graduated last May and are still looking or just working at a non-MIS job to get by while looking for something better then you might qualify for this and should look into it. (If you're still taking classes, then I don't think you would qualify and this would cut into your time anyway because the training itself is a full-time job for a couple of months (Nov thru Jan) anyway. But for you there is a ton of free Salesforce training available online through their Trailhead system which is fun and helps you gear up for certification, if that's your goal.
Anyway, here's the posting below. It includes the link to the program & app, etc. at the bottom. If this applies to you, check it out and maybe give it a try. (And let me know, ok? Thanks)
