A Day in the Life of a Salesforce Consultant

 
 
Morning
You kick off the day prioritizing your inbox and answering client questions before your daily team meeting. In the meeting, you discuss how your accounts are doing and some places where you support.
 
Midmorning
Time to meet with a client to discuss the status an ongoing project. You and your project manager review the milestones, action items, and projected dates with the client.
 
After Lunch
A colleague asks for your help on a project proposal. You review their work and advise on the best solution for the situation.
 
Afternoon
You head across town for an on-site meeting with one of your clients. Having successfully implemented the system improvements they needed, you present your final work and summary to the operations team.
 
End of Day
Before heading out for the day, you log the time you spent on each project so that you can bill your clients appropriately.
