The question has never been in doubt, Salesforce is growing, and more and more companies are adopting the technology and joining the Ohana. As a result, Germany is next in line to be a leading region in the use of Salesforce, meaning the country is going to require an enormous amount of skilled people for this to be possible. The good news is that, with the rise in the demand for Salesforce, it has never been easier to get a job in Germany. But, exactly what skills are hot at the moment, and what can you do to make sure that you are best placed to grow with the trend?
Having worked in the Salesforce market, recruiting skilled Salesforce professionals, I am increasingly aware that there is a strong need for Consultants and Business analysts in the market because individuals who are able to understand a business needs and provide solutions in line with Salesforce are just what the market is craving. Whilst they are undeniably important, with most ‘technical’ skills and jobs being outsourced to offshore regions, these roles are not as hot as the consultants and business analysts of this world.
Next in line are the Salesforce administrators, an integral part of the business and – after all – the professionals responsible for essentially taking the reins once implementations are complete. Businesses are craving these individuals who can get their projects off the ground and ensure their longevity and success, and the positive news is that to learn the Admin role is totally within your control by taking advantage of Salesforce’s online trailheads. Although Administrator certifications are highly recommended, they are by no means a necessity as many professionals are capable of learning the trade on site.
As Salesforce continues to grow and advance and harnesses ever-complex technologies like artificial intelligence and blockchain, I am sure we will see a shift in the types of roles that businesses are desperate to fill. One thing is for sure, however; for those of you working in the world of Salesforce, the demand isn’t going anywhere, and neither should anyone working in the ecosystem think about leaving it!
