You can often find us discussing the state of Dynamics recruitment on the Conspicuous blog. In the past, we’ve focused on the overall problem of resource supply and demand. Here, we will look at the huge challenges facing partners in the Microsoft Dynamics channel struggling to recruit university (college) students, and reveal the exciting new solution Microsoft has unveiled for the US, Canada, UK and Europe. The Huge Problem of Recruiting Students At Conspicuous, we know that you need specialised Dynamics knowledge, expertise and people skills to recruit the best graduates into Dynamics partner channels. There are a number of reasons why:
- The majority of partners in the channel are SMEs and therefore don’t have massive recruitment budgets.
- In addition, not many of them are household names, and don’t have the pull of larger businesses that capture the imagination of recent graduates.
- Finally, some graduates just don’t know about – or understand – the vast array of roles available in partner channels. They see themselves instead working at Microsoft’s glamorous HQ in Redmond!
