Climb Hire was founded in 2019 by three-time social entrepreneur Nitzan Pelman.
Working adults from low-income communities aspire to find upwardly mobile careers yet struggle to break into a new industry without traditional education backgrounds and strong professional networks. We selected the Salesforce Administrator skill because it offers a range of professional opportunities and an annual salary range of $45-$90k. Since LinkedIn data indicates jobseekers are 9x more likely to be hired when they’re referred by someone to a job, it is critical for individuals without a college degree or strong professional network to build social capital. Climb Hire’s program combines technical and soft skills training while teaching participants how to build a strong professional community.
Climb Hire trains working adults to be Salesforce Administrators. Most Climbers hold multiple jobs, work for minimum wage, and have taken some college classes without completing a four-year degree.
