What to Look for in an Employer: ERP Software Jobs with Dynamics 365 Partner

Up until recently, it wasn’t uncommon for an employee to stay with a company for decades -- perhaps for their entire career. But in today’s fast paced and ever changing job market, things are different. Professionals switch jobs many times throughout their career, particularly those working in the software and tech world.

 

Are you currently on the job hunt? If you’re a software professional with experience working with Microsoft Dynamics 365, there are lots of opportunities out there. But how do you know which company is the right one?

The best employers will give their employees opportunities to grow, work to maintain a good company culture, and employ positive, cooperative people. If you know what to look for in a prospective employer, you can find a company to call home for years to come.

 

Growth Opportunities 

Whether you’ve been in the industry for years or just finished your bachelor’s degree, it’s important to devote time and energy to professional growth. This is especially true in the tech world. If you don’t stay on top of changing trends in technology, you’ll find yourself struggling to stay relevant as a professional.

 

Younger tech employees in particular often find themselves in positions with limited potential for growth. They end up pigeonholed into a narrow, rigidly defined job, and never have the opportunity to try out new tasks or broaden their horizons.

 

A good employer will prioritize their employees’ professional development. Look for an organization that gives employees the chance to attend continuing education courses and collaborate with other departments. These companies are more likely to put employees first, too -- something that’s always important in a prospective employer.

 

The Right Company Culture

When it comes to the day to day experience of working at a given organization, few things are as important as company culture.

 

When you’re applying or interviewing for a position at a new organization, it’s essential to do your homework and learn about their company culture. What are their values? What do they prioritize? Do they encourage their employees to communicate openly and promote transparency?

 

Consider too that there are jobs in the tech industry that center around an office, and others offer more work from home opportunities. It’s especially important if you’re thinking about taking a remote position to find out whether or not your prospective employer puts energy into keeping its remote employees connected. A company that offers annual events, local meet ups, and employee trips will likely leave you feeling more connected to your fellow coworkers if you don’t see them every day in the office.

 

The People

At the end of the day, the people you work with can make or break your experience at work. If you work with the right people, just about any job can bring you satisfaction. On the other hand, the wrong people will make it difficult to enjoy your job -- no matter how much you might love the work itself.

 

An organization with a positive company culture will tend to employ the sort of people you’ll enjoy working with. Read through your prospective employer’s online employee reviews. Do employees report feeling like they’re members of a team? Does the work environment promote collaboration as opposed to competition? When you work with the right people, you’ll find yourself looking forward to each day at the office.
