You have deployed your Salesforce instance and have your first Admin or Admins. Things are going great, but you need to know when it’s time to add another Administrator to your team. This can be a tough issue to manage. Wait too long and you could exhaust your team. Hire too quickly and risk wasting money where it isn’t needed.
We put together a few questions you can ask yourself to figure out if it’s time to hire another Administrator. If you answer yes to any of these questions then it’s time to start hunting!
Every role has it's own unique requirements for technical expertise. Knowing what to put in a job post can make a huge difference between attracting a bland applicant and the home-run candidate that is a perfect fit.
Salesforce roles are notably difficult due to the technical vocabulary and wide range of ecosystem solutions. For example, publishing a job posting for a “CRM Manager” will produce wildly different results than a posting for a “Salesforce Administrator with a Pardot Certification and familiarity with DocuSign's AppExchange Product.” Generic descriptions are not your friend. Finding a candidate that fits will need the right description of a role that attracts the right type of candidates.We see a lot of job postings and a lot of candidates at ForceOwl. So to help out we put together a checklist of the information you should include in any Salesforce job posting. Of course, if you use our app we will do all this work for you (shameless self promotion).

Certainly you are at the start of a road that is incredibly promising. The value that Salesforce can bring is potentially huge. The problem is that you can’t realize that potential alone. You need a savvy team that can take your goals and vision and turn them into a reality.
The first part of that team (normally) is a Salesforce Administrator. They are the key to taking your instance from boring software to a transformative tool. We wrote this to help you focus on the the right things to consider when hiring your first Administrator.Read More
