With new Trailhead Ranger Ranks, Trailblazers have more ways to highlight their knowledge and expertise.

New Trailhead Ranger Ranks empower Trailblazers to stand out to employers by emphasizing their commitment to learning in-demand digital skills.

Preparing for the new world of work is one of the defining business problems of our time. As jobs evolve, so will the skills needed to perform them.

Employers are shifting toward skills-based, competency hiring over college degree requirements. This makes it critical for job seekers to showcase their skills and highlight their commitment to professional development for hiring managers to see easily.

In 2019 we created the Profile–the trusted Salesforce resume providing a complete view of an individual’s skills, certifications, accomplishments, and connections.

Introducing new Ranger Ranks on Trailhead

One of the most important and engaging features on Profiles is Trailblazer Ranks. These showcases where someone is on their learning journey with Trailhead—Salesforce’s free, online learning platform.

Until today, Trailhead Ranger was the highest of seven ranks awarded to Trailblazers committed to skilling up and standing at the forefront of innovation across the Salesforce ecosystem. But, many go above and beyond the already exceptional level of skill development achieved by our Rangers.

“Being an All-Star Ranger demonstrates my willingness to never stop learning. There’s always some new bit of knowledge that I can pick up, and Trailhead is a fantastic way to learn on the go!” — Trailblazer Amber Boaz

Your reinvented resume

The Profile is unique from a traditional resume or online profile. It verifies your Salesforce skills through Trailhead, which documents and validates skills and learning.

With proven skills displayed in a personalized Skills Graph on the Profile, employers get a clear view of an individual’s competencies.

Hiring managers find the Profile to be a valuable recruitment tool. Evan Decker, Salesforce manager at Calabrio and All Star Ranger, included a candidate’s Profile when hiring skilled talent in the Salesforce ecosystem and never looked back.

“I always check a candidate’s Profile, as it’s easy to see a candidate’s relevant knowledge, experience, and accomplishments all in one place. If I see someone who’s a Double-Star Ranger or above, I know they’re passionate about the platform and a life-long learner—and they’re someone I’d want to talk to!” — Trailblazer Evan Decker

Now, it’s easier than ever for employers to see the breadth and depth of a job seeker’s knowledge by looking at their Profile.
