If you are questioning your next career move, consider a profession in the world of Microsoft Consulting. Like many others, I recently found myself in the middle of a career change and was fortunate enough to find my path within the Microsoft Consulting industry. Let me take you on my journey into this fast paced, innovative, and rapidly expanding industry, and show you how you too can make the career jump with little to no experience.
When one is faced with a career change, there are many factors to consider. For this post, I will be focusing on experience, and how it plays a role in making the switch to a new career field; specifically, the world of Microsoft Consulting, and how someone with little to no experience can jumpstart their career. First, we will look at my recent switch to the world of Microsoft Consulting; followed by how the company I began working for navigates the current hiring challenges and staffing shortages with their innovative approach to training incoming candidates.
Throughout the last couple of years, there have been significant changes and disruptions to the US job market. The most troublesome being the emergence of the Covid-19 pandemic early on in 2020, followed by growing unrest and unease from many employed individuals regarding their working conditions, employer expectations, and overall compensation. Whether it be health related, economic, personal choice, or even unexpected, the reality is that many are finding themselves in some sort of transitional phase and questioning what’s next when it comes to the future of their jobs and career paths. If you have found yourself in this position, then I recommend following this post closely, and considering if a career in Microsoft Consulting might be for you.
Like many Americans, I too found myself in a transitional phase during 2021. After separating from my previous employer, and questioning what was next, I began to do some research. The research was a compilation of my current skills and competencies, experiences, and interests. At the end of this exhaustive search, I landed on the possibility of a career in Microsoft consulting.
Along with some of the benefits above, I always had an affinity towards software & problem solving, two aspects that are particularly important in the Microsoft Consulting Industry. Now that I had identified a path, how could I make this a reality without having the years and years of experience and industry knowledge that often comes with the consulting territory. Here are some of the steps I took as I began this journey.
With the few steps above, combined with hard work and determination, I was able to interview for and land a position with an exceptional company called Avantiico. Avantiico is a Microsoft Gold Partner with extensive industry experience and an impressive client list. As Avantiico’s new Growth Manager, one of our top initiatives is the further development and expansion of Avantiico Academy.
This leads me to my next and final topic – how you too can start a career in Microsoft Consulting with little to no experience through Avantiico Academy. Avantiico Academy is a company sponsored training program that takes candidates through the necessary requirements needed to become a consultant. Oftentimes, candidates will have little to no experience with Microsoft software or in consulting but possess traits and skills that can be built upon. To some, this might seem like a big undertaking, however, Avantiico has formulated an education track that reaches all facets of what it means to be a consultant and created a dynamite program for success.
