#068. Hot Jobs 2024 : Salesforce AI & Data

Hey Smart Marketers!

It’s December already… Time to look back but also to forecast next year!

So, where should you go?

Should you focus on Salesforce Marketing Cloud Engagement? Or on Data Cloud?

Let me be straightforward here: Salesforce Marketing Cloud Engagement is NOT a hot topic.

If you want to be hunted, you’d better get Data & AI skills (and projects!) while it’s still a blue ocean.

I selected 3 positions that will be IMHO 2024 rockstars.
