My advise is to work for a company that runs it and try and get involved, just training well not usually get you a job, atleast not in the rest of the world.

Generally companys running SAP want expereinced people (it is the main product they run there company on !) and just wont hire new staff unless they are a large campany with lots of people and are willing to train you.

Freshers who are SAP Certified - kindly look for Support Roles initially before your CV is puffed up with the required years of experience (you will need to be patient and persistent in your efforts- afterall all those who are successfully placed right now will agree with me that they were also once in your position but kept pushing forward.)
Rome was not built in a day - Be patient and Be Persistent - you will arrive at the right place at the right time with the right employer - even if you dont like it, you cannot afford not succeeding as a SAP consultant.
Best wishes!

Hi Meetrajan,

Have u managed to gather more info on the SAP consultant? I have an interest to become one as well, but the training fees are very expensive and it seems to be very tough for a fresher to get into the job market.

Can u give me more details?
U can PM me..
thanks

I started with my current organisation as a temp. staff in Australia.

When I started I thought SAP was something that came out of a tree! Had never heard of it. 3yrs on, no "formal" SAP training and I have now been relocated to Singapore with my company as a Subject Matter Expert. I still can't believe it myself...

The best advice I can give:
- Screw the training courses as they tend to be overpriced, and most of what you learn will be lost unless you use it straight away. You aren't going to get a good job and big salary off a SAP course alone. Its the experience that matters. Technical training has its place but...

Be strategic about your career!
- Research and choose a module to specialise in. SAP is huge and IMO people that claim to be "experts" in multiple modules can rarely live up to expectations unless they have been doing it for several years. There are a bunch of websites with discussion forums about SAP careers. One of my faves is sap.ittoolbox.com. Be sceptical about the 'new' sap technologies, there is some interesting stuff out there with strong demand from employers but without a reasonable grasp of SAP basis are hard to learn
- Build a profile of companies in the Singapore market that run SAP which shouldn't be hard. SAP likes to advertise which "big" companies use their product. Job postings will also give you good clues which companies use which modules of SAP.
- Target entry level positions in these organisations and when you get in, get inquisitive.

When you get the job:
- Help with testing! Lets face it testing sucks. Nobody really enjoys it (well, structured testing anyway) but rarely do you get to 'play' in an SAP system with access well in excess of what you might have in a production environment. You experience things you would never see normally and greatly enhance your exposure and self-learning.
- Find your own answers to problems. Sifting through a few websites or help.sap.com might take 5 or 10x as long, but again the variety of experience found on discussion boards will give you some great ideas.

all SAP jobs require work experience even the junior posts; my friend did his SAP certification and it left him high and dry without any opportunities whatsoever. Experience counts more than paper, as what the post earlier stated.
