I think: Obscurity
Whether it’s you as a job seeker looking for a position or me as a recruiter looking for a new customer.
Are the people that need to find you, finding you?
Check out the below numbers using LinkedIn Recruiter.
Salesforce Admin – 13,756
Salesforce Consultant – 11,665
Salesforce Developer – 6,354
Salesforce Architect – 895
These numbers represent the number of Salesforce professionals looking for new opportunities (globally).
If you hold any of these titles, then you’re somewhere in this count.
Maybe you’re in the top third, middle third, or bottom third.
It doesn’t really matter…
The bigger question is, how can YOU be found?
Do you have a strategy in place?
Waiting to get picked out is probably not the best option (or very sustainable).
Fortunately for YOU, that’s what most are doing.
So the question is, what can you do differently?
Hint: It’s probably going to make you uncomfortable, feel a little awkward, uncertain, cause a fear of failure, getting rejected, or get you worried what others might say.
Suggestion: Do that…again, again, and again.
Maybe, I’m wrong, but I don’t think there’s much of an alternative…
