If you’re working with Salesforce at any level, your chances are much better if you stay within your current role and instead look for development opportunities there. But if you think you are not well suited to your current placement and want to change out of that line, you can bring up the discussion with your manager during your appraisal review and find out what opportunities are open in other departments.
Practically speaking, remaining within your present line of work and instead finding ways to Advance therein will look stellar on your resume. Not only does it show your advancing grasp of Salesforce, it also proves that you are good enough for someone to trust with an even greater opportunity should it come along. In addition, you don’t have to go through the pressure of learning a new line of work right from scratch.
Working within a consultancy
Consultancies provide a viable way of maximizing your Career potential, even though they involve quite a bit of travel. As a consultant, you will encounter a wide range of projects, which will allow you to practice most of what you read about, from SalesforceGitHub to Iot and Marketing Automation among many others.
The biggest advantage of consultancies is that they have clear hierarchies with defined promotion objectives. In addition, the skills you pick up handling different projects will help you get where you’re looking to go.
Moving to an end-user
If you’re currently working for an end-user with little potential for progression, consider Moving to a different end user where you can relieve the frustrations in your current post. You can also move from consultancy into a senor position with an end user. Moving from consultancies will enable you perform duties you would not have been exposed to in a simple end-user setting such as designing business roadmaps and preparing budgets among others. Moving to end-users is also great for those who are looking to reduce their workloads and have more family time.
Moving to contracting
If you’re someone with a permanent flow of opportunities and clientele, going into contracting can advance your practical skills. This is true because you will be working with a specific niche that demands for the specific skills you have to offer. An example is Salesforce experts who specialize in data migration – they only come into a team for this phase of deployment and then. The level of demand for these specialized skills can easily sustain their desirability.
A caveat with this line of progress is that being brought into a team on contract means that progress within your chosen path is unlikely. If you are taken as a senior consultant for a project, that’s all that you can do. It therefore doesn’t offer much by way to job security and promotions. Nevertheless, the pay is certainly worth your while.
One of the most important lessons you can learn however you want to advance your career is that people are more likely to hire those they like than those with the right skills. Therefore, your attitude and ability to network will take you much further than your skillset would. Skills can always be taught. Get your name out there by networking wherever you are, somehow opportunities to advance will start coming your way.
