Should I look for a permanent or contract Salesforce job?
The Salesforce ecosystem is always changing, and innovation is its watchword. Recent years have seen Salesforce evolve its offering with a range of enhancements – Lightning Web Component, Artificial Intelligence (AI), Einstein Analytics to name a few.
Working within such an innovative ecosystem is rewarding, but for professionals does mean that continuous upskilling is crucial to stay ahead of the game. That’s why taking on varying contractor projects can provide you with valuable and diverse skillsets – keeping you ahead of the curve and highly employable.
Consider your options though. A permanent role provides you with benefits you wouldn’t have otherwise, including paid holiday, stability, a steady workflow, and time spent intensely working with a particular technology.
In Salesforce this could pay dividends, particularly in the more niche areas where skills and experience are harder to come by. The choice is yours – there are lots of jobs available, both as a contractor and as a permanent employee.
What skillsets are needed in Salesforce?
Each Salesforce product requires professionals with different skillsets. Salesforce Sales Cloud for instance requires experts familiar with operations and sales metrics, Salesforce Marketing Cloud needs experts in automation and digital marketing, and Salesforce Platform requires familiarity with app building.
Data and analytical skills as well as CRM experience are also useful for each of these.
Are Trailhead Badges and Salesforce Certifications important to have?
Experience is always valued, but for those looking for Salesforce System Administrator jobs or thinking about upskilling, Trailhead is a great place to start.
On the more formal side, Salesforce certifications are widely recognised by employers for all the Salesforce job families, and Hays provides plenty of sponsored training opportunities.

What trends are emerging in Salesforce in 2021?
Increased digital communication over the past year means a need for more synchronised remote collaboration. You’ll see a lot of this from Salesforce in the coming year, starting with the integration with communication tool Slack.
Salesforce AI tool Einstein is also expected to evolve significantly in how it can help companies make business decisions. The first AI for CRM, it can be integrated seamlessly into the Salesforce platform and is built to deliver marketing predictions and insights at scale.
Improved understanding of customer behaviour will also be achieved through the enhancement of the Salesforce Customer 360 platform, which empowers companies to unite their sales, marketing, service and IT data on one integrated CRM platform.
How can I increase my Salesforce salary?
Certifications are definitely a route to progression, a better salary and they offer credibility. The online training framework Salesforce provides is first-class and can be entirely self-taught.
For extra experience you could consider reaching out to local not-for-profits or charities and volunteering your skills – this looks great on your CV, as does carving a niche in a certain industry, such as healthcare.
An understanding of a particular industry and the products that integrate into it well is invaluable, as well as knowledge of newer Salesforce products that fewer people are likely to have experience with, such as Einstein Analytics.
