Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the office,
Not a user was stirring, not even a novice.
But project tickets were stowed by an inbox with care,
In hopes that the team Admin soon would be there.
The sales team was at home, snug in their beds,
While visions of reports and dashboards danced in their heads.
Our dev with his code, and I with my mouse,
We’re getting work done from home, or possibly a coffeehouse.
When out on AppExchange there arose such a Chatter,
I logged in so quick to see what was the matter.
Open a new browser window I clicked like a flash,
Reloaded my screen and cleared out my cache!
An ISP must have heard about my woe,
Used customer feedback as development ammo.
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear,
A new Salesforce Integration in time for the new year.
With consultants and talent and users so quick,
This Admin saw the perfect app, integrated in just one click.
Sandbox environments is where it first would go,
And a bit of testing with our gallant CEO.
And then, with a ding, I heard my phone chime,
Integration approval in almost no time.
“It’s a Christmas miracle” I had exclaimed,
All my holiday vacation, quickly reclaimed.

Let’s talk a bit about strategies for researching companies before you look for a job there; we’ll discuss where to look for information, what sort of information to look for, and why it is so important to do this type of research.
