It's incredibly complex, user-hostile and boring. Programming in SAP is roughly as enjoyable as masturbating with a cheesegrater, with the occasional German-only error message to keep things interesting.

Yes, that's because no-one in their right mind wants to do it. I've stopped mentioning it on my CV so I won't get railroaded into working on it again...

usually PeopleSoft hires people who knows SAP programming right? does SAP have different kinds of programming? because they said SAP is just a general name kind of programming. is this true?

SAP is incredibly amazing stuff... from a sales point of view, anyway. Companies spend millions of dollars for an "enterprise solution" that DOESN'T WORK. It needs to be "customized", by programmers who can earn an extremely high hourly rate, often at a price tag that exceeds the original purchase price of millions of dollars.

And when they are all through spending zillions of millions, they often have a software system that is only marginally useful and very hard to customize as the needs of the company change (unless of course, you don't mind paying outlandish SAP programming rates). Worse, you are now over a barrel, locked into one vendor who can change license terms at will.

Of course, this entire diatribe applies equally well to PeopleSoft.

OK, if this is your level of interest and knowledge, then you might as well forget the whole thing. I'm not (only) being rude, I'm serious. Just forget it. This is so not the ticket to instant riches that you're expecting.
