SAP Jobs without graduation

Former Member
0 Kudos

Hello experts ,

  I hv` been in SAP since 6 years . I am working in a small firm. My next step is to change in the brand name and increase in salary too. But i do not have any graduation degree with me , i have applied in many  companies (MNCs) but they won`t need and consider my experience rather than they required graduation certification from me.

I am pursuing a graduation which will finish in next year. Is it really matter a graduation in SAP Career rather than experience.

Vishnu,

You can consider yourself lucky that firms are looking for "just" a Graduation. Back in the day when I was a "fresher" and looking for a job, the minimum eligibility criteria was a Post Graduate Degree or an Engineering degree.

A Graduation degree is very important. The lack of having such a degree will haunt you for the rest of your career. I mean which firm would want to hire a Project Manager or an Account Manager who is not even a Graduate.

I'm not trying to de-motivate you, but trying to make you realise the importance of a Graduate Certificate. Get it done as soon as possible. You wont regret it.

Hi Vishnu,

Nowadays most of the companies look for graduated persons and this has remained as one of their HR policy for certain positions in the organisation.

But with my experience in interviews, I personally always look for few things in the candidates

1) How much SAP knowledge the person has?

2) How he has understood the concepts?

3) And how deep the understanding he has on SAP products/modules.

More important point I look for is their interest & eagerness in learning new things.It does not matter if a person has graduation or he is working in small//medium/large scale industries or where he comes from.

What matters is the knowledge of SAP, Communication skills and Attitude to learn more.

What I would recommend, instead of assuming MNC's recruit only graduates..you should keep trying for better opportunities and quickly complete the graduation.

Regards,

Ravi
