Job seeking in a post-pandemic world – not something that you would have predicted doing at the start of your career.
And despite the obvious difficulties the pandemic has caused in certain areas, things have been made surprisingly easier in others.
Searching for that new role has been revolutionised, with career opportunities presenting themselves to Salesforce candidates in different ways and new locations.
For Salesforce employees and those in industries where remote work has now been adopted, the career possibilities are endless. The ‘Zoom‘ generation – those progressing through careers right now as the world of work is changing around us, will have access to roles on a scale like never before.
Today‘s blog looks at the implications of these new opportunities for job seekers in the Salesforce space.
Increased Flexibility for Salesforce Job Seekers
The devastating loss of life caused by the pandemic is a global tragedy. Yet, from this disaster, positives are emerging.
A recent article in The Conversation highlighted how “Covid-19 could have a lasting, positive effect on workplace culture“. Sometimes it takes a massive shake-up for positive change to happen.
The culture of trust and collaboration formed organically from remote work also benefits both employees and employers. Paul Zak, author of Trust Factor: The Science of Creating High-Performance Companies, states, “Employees in high-trust organisations are more productive, have more energy at work, collaborate better with their colleagues and stay with their employers longer than people working at low-trust companies“.
The way that Salesforce has backed remote working demonstrates how trusting they are as an employer – and this is one reason they are recognised as one of the top employers in the world.
In your current role, is there a culture of trust? Switching to an employer who gives you more autonomy and allowing you greater freedom is increasingly becoming a ‘must-have’ for Salesforce candidates. The new remote working culture means that we see these roles more and more.

Next, let‘s look at how job seeking has changed in the Zoom generation.
The Benefits of Job Seeking in the Remote Age
The recruitment process has changed significantly in the last 12 months.
There is far more of an emphasis on video interviews and software that makes the process possible from afar. As a Salesforce recruiter, we have access to exclusive opportunities. We are working with top Salesforce clients to find them the best talent continually – remote recruitment is now starting to be considered the ‘norm‘.
If you‘ve been working within the same Salesforce role during the pandemic but are thinking about your next move and wonder what the post-pandemic recruitment process will be like, we can help. Remote recruitment has plenty of benefits for candidates; you might be surprised at the range of new opportunities available to you – click here to talk to one of our Salesforce career experts.
Another win for current job seekers is the almost total eradication of location-based recruitment.
If you are thinking of job seeking this year, is your job search focused on one area? Once considered an unusual occurrence, it is becoming increasingly common that job seekers are looking outside their geographical region. There is no longer the need to be tied to work in the area you live in, and top Salesforce employers understand this.

Salesforce: Putting‘ People First‘
There is a real buzz in the Salesforce space regarding how the ‘way‘ employees work is evolving.
Although some roles have been offered on a remote basis historically, these positions were coveted. Not all Salesforce candidates had the option to choose whether to work from home or the office.
These flexible options have not only improved the work-life balance of Salesforce employees, but they are also contributing to an improvement in all areas of employee‘s lives.
Increased job seekers’ choices in terms of location and start-finish times have made it possible for Salesforce employees to live the kind of lives they want finally. Their work can slot in around their personal lives, whether that‘s childcare or fitting in a mid-day gym session, to be able to get on the property ladder thanks to a greater choice in where they can live.
