University of Central Florida

Recently, I graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Business Marketing degree and I have had trouble finding a job. I don’t have much to show for on paper regarding experience or certifications but I am very driven and have a great grasp for online marketing and SEO. I’m not sure how to highlight my intangibles on paper so I am looking to get certified with the Salesforce software. Any recommendations on what certification to get? Or even if there is another certification to get?
