When Is It Right to Take the Next Step in Your Dynamics 365 Career?

In any career, planning your next job move can be daunting. Careers in Dynamics 365 technology are no different. You have a clear idea of what route your resource planning software career will take and even a set end goal. At one time it was standard practice to work in just a few organisations over an entire career, but now the average person changes jobs between ten to fifteen times (with an average of 12 job moves) over their total career. For some, this ‘job-hopping’ is a way of progressing their career at a faster pace than they may have in the same role, gaining essential experience from one role and building upon it in the next. Within the tech industry this is even more the case due to the constantly evolving nature of the field. Because of this, maybe it’s time for you to venture into a new role.

Clarify your reasons

It’s advisable to consider your reasons for wanting a job move, making sure it’s entirely for the right reasons. If you are finding yourself nodding in agreement to some of the following, it may be time to take the next step on the rung of your Dynamics 365 or Dynamics AX career ladder.
  • Have you learned all you can from your current role?
  • Is your Dynamics 365 or Dynamics AX knowledge not being utilised?
  • Are there little or no opportunities of professional development?

Specify your needs

What are you looking to gain by moving on? Are you looking to learn whilst working? Do you want to manage a team? Perhaps you’re a Dynamics Analyst ready to make the transition to Solution Architect? It could be effective to list out your next role requirements from your point of view in order of importance and use this to guide you along your job hunt.

Explore new opportunities

Identify your next potential ideal role. This may be a vacancy within your current organisation or a new position elsewhere. Networking is still a very effective way of discovering fresh job opportunities. An ideal event for this is the Summit EMEA. This is an ideal arena to meet key people who work in and with Microsoft Dynamics 365, AX and CRM.
