Struggling to find Salesforce Admins? Here's why!
Salesforce admins are a critical part of your technical team. Top Salesforce Admins will help keep your Salesforce team humming along, by caring for user support, ongoing configuration and platform growth, analytics, release maintenance and data work.
A dedicated Salesforce Admin places someone at the helm of your Salesforce efforts with a deep, hands on understanding of Salesforce and how it fits into your organization. Finding top Salesforce Admins, though, can be challenging – today’s most exceptional talent is in high demand from organizations across the country.
If you’re struggling to find Salesforce Admins for your organization, these reasons could be the culprit >>
Your hiring process takes too long. The length of your hiring process can be a huge turnoff for top Salesforce Admins. Your recruiting and hiring process should be a well-oiled machine, with efficient, thorough steps to help you properly find and assess candidates. An unnecessarily long hiring process can turn off Salesforce Admins (and result in them sharing negative feedback about your organization). This is especially true when it comes to multiple interviews. Coming into your office two, three, even four times for interviews can be excessive — particularly for Admins who are already employed. Be prepared before reaching out to candidates to schedule interviews so that critical personnel are able to meet with candidates on the same day.
Your job descriptions are too vague. Research from The Talent Board shows that job descriptions are the most important job-related content candidates look for when they are applying. Salesforce Admins, like all professionals, want a clear description of the job duties and responsibilities, plus an overview of the essentials: salary, benefits, company values/culture and any perks. If your job descriptions don’t include all of this information in an easy- and quick-to-read package, you may not get many (or any) applications.
You’re not communicating effectively. Research from CareerArc shows that 60% of candidates said that better communication throughout and after the applicant process would make the most positive impact on their candidate experience. Yet, 65% say they never or rarely receive notice about their applications. Word spreads quickly when candidates are unhappy with your candidate experience. In a tight knit community like the Salesforce community, you can be assured that word travels especially quickly. If you haven’t properly communicated timelines and expectations to Salesforce Admins in the past, chances are that word has gotten around.
You’re not sure what you need. Today’s top Salesforce Admins are in demand, so when a great job opportunity comes up they are eager to get started. If employers are disorganized or unsure about key details of the job (eg. contract or perm, start date, etc.), it can turn off top talent. Be sure you know precisely who your organization needs before bringing in talent for interviews.
You’re missing a key strategic partnership. The best way to recruit Salesforce Admins who have the precise experience needed to make an impact on your organization is to partner with a staffing provider who specializes in Salesforce recruiting. The most agile organizations understand that recruiting Salesforce Admins requires in depth knowledge and experience in the Salesforce ecosystem. Other recruiting firms (even technical firms) simply don’t have the industry experience and strong network of relationships necessary to deliver top Salesforce Admins. Working with a specialized Salesforce staffing firm like Tech2 can help you eliminate stress and expense while gaining access to truly exceptional Salesforce Admins.
