As recruiters for Microsoft Dynamics, it’s vital to know about how changes in the world of Dynamics affect the jobs market. This article summarises the explosion in Dynamics CRM over the last year, and the continual projected growth for this year. With that in mind, we have considered some of the effects these changes will have on the job market. 

Salesforce partnership means greater requirement for CRM developers

Microsoft’s decision to partner with Salesforce was a smart one for Microsoft in terms of the additional Dynamics CRM integration. It’s great for Dynamics professionals, too. Naturally, with an increase in demand for Dynamics CRM, we see an increase in the requirement for skilled Dynamics CRM professionals. This has led to additional perks for those in the Dynamics jobs market, such as:
  • Higher salaries
  • More jobs available on the market
  • A wider range of careers to specialise in
  • Jobs in different cities/countries (for those looking to relocate)
  • Job security

…It also means more candidates in the pool

However, if you’ve noticed the perks of being a Dynamics CRM professional, others have, too. The above benefits attract people to the top Dynamics roles, and although many claim there is a Dynamics resource drought, it can still be challenging to get the perfect job – simply because of the competition.

High Azure adoption means more platforms to develop for

The breadth of available jobs in Dynamics CRM is expanding rapidly thanks to a number of factors, not least the explosive popularity and adoption of Microsoft’s Azure cloud service. In the Dynamics arena, Azure implementation has led to the need for Dynamics professionals who can develop solutions for a broader range of platforms. More products to develop for equals a broader pallet of work for Dynamics professionals. The explosion in the popularity of Dynamics CRM has generated more jobs, more competition for those jobs, and a broader variety of available roles. If you’re a CRM professional, now is the perfect time to begin your career with Dynamics CRM.
