The Salesforce economy is booming — Get the skills that thrill with Trailhead!
According to a recent IDC study, a whopping 4.2 million new jobs will be created in the Salesforce economy by 2024. Discover how Trailhead can help develop the in-demand Salesforce skills that set you up for all kinds of success — and set you apart from the pack.
As businesses embrace the future of cloud computing, big data, IoT, and AI, the demand for technical skills continues to grow. Salesforce skills, both technical and otherwise, are especially in-demand.
So, naturally, job seekers who rock resumes with Salesforce skills stand out. Employers know that these candidates have skilled up on the world’s #1 Customer Relationship Management (CRM) system and are ready to provide some serious business solutions.
This sounds like a pretty good reason to stack up some Salesforce skills of your own, but maybe you need more convincing.
The numbers don’t lie
That’s right! To start, adding Salesforce skills to an AA degree opens up access to an additional 23,000 job postings, according to a Burning Glass report.
Salesforce Developers earn an average U.S. salary of $125k, and the role ranks second on Glassdoor’s 2019 list of 25 jobs with the Best Career Opportunities in the U.S. and tenth on Indeed’s list of Best Jobs in the U.S. 2019.
But those aren’t the only impressive stats. Business News Daily ranked the Salesforce Certified Technical Architect credential as one of the Best Enterprise Architect Certifications in the industry based on marketplace demand.
Certified Technical Architects can expect to earn at least an average U.S. salary of $150k. And Salesforce-specific jobs that require other advanced technical skills, such as Visualforce and Sales Cloud, can net more than $100k per year.
While these tech-heavy roles are definitely in high demand, the truth is, anyone with Salesforce skills — no matter their role or domain — is in a prime position for career growth.
Reap the rewards, regardless of role
On average, jobs calling for Salesforce skills pay more than $70k per year.
More specifically, roles such as Salesforce Administrator earn an average U.S. salary of $95k, Salesforce Consultants earn an average U.S. salary of $95k, Sales Professionals earn an average U.S. salary of $90k, and Service Professionals earn an average U.S. salary of 74k.
And don’t forget about our friends in marketing! Marketing Professionals with Salesforce skills earn an average U.S. salary of $85k, and, according to Burning Glass, Salesforce is one of the top 10 digital skills that boost marketing careers.

And if a Salesforce certification is in your sights, a great way to prep is by completing role-specific Super Sets, or collections of Superbadges that further test your domain expertise. There are Super Sets for Administrators, Developers, and Consultants — and more to come.
A certification is an official acknowledgement of your awesomeness. No, really! It’s a badge of honor that shows you know your stuff and can apply your knowledge in real-world situations.
Earning one requires a tremendous amount of hard work and dedication — they’re only granted after you’ve passed an exam process that tests your expertise in a particular area.
So, certifications — no matter how you cut it — are kind of a big deal. Check out our Top 5 Reasons Why Now Is the Time to Get Salesforce-Certified.
