SAP Certification

 
#1 SAP Certification

I'm in the IT field and looking towards consultancy as my long term career. I've been working for 2 1/2 years. Currently considering taking up the SAP certification which will hopefully make me marketable anywhere in the world. Does anyone know what the prospects of gaining entry into consultancy firms are if you have the cert but not the working experience in SAP implementations? I don't mind starting at the bottom, just wondering if they'd even give me a second look.

Functional experience counts a lot (AND/OR SAP Implementation exp)for getting into ERP consultancies. There are also companies who provide post-SAP services like HelpDesk services. After certification, in case you don't get break into Big consultancies (who generally like to make their resource billable from Day 1), consider joining above mentioned type of companies. Get some exposure to solving business process problems after which you may be a ready resource for Implementation. In case you directly get chance to jump into implementation, consider yourself lucky. rgds, Avinash

Getting certified is not a bad step if you're seriously looking into getting into ERP.

However you'll need to decide if you want to get into it through the Technical route or Functional consulting route.

With your experience, it'll be easier if you try the technical route.

Smaller companies will be willing to consider you if you get certified and have good prior experience with procedural programming, client server architecture and a bit of relational programming.

Ive actually managed to get an offer an a Associate Consultant. Basically Im starting from the bottom with two years bond and minimal wage, as they opened the positions up to fresh graduates. It isnt an internationally known consulting firm, but one that manages to get pretty major clients in my country. The way the company is structured is such that I learn up from the technical end, by being an ABAP programmer for the first year.

Still undecided on the offer though many have said that SAP is a hard market to penetrate for someone in my situation. Now it looks like my Certification didnt matter to this firm anyhow.
