Sir / madam,

             I was trained in SAP SD module in an unauthorized local institute, However I got a very good trainer there,  I am working as an end user now,I have started to workout for my certification, I am planning to do my certification after taking one year of experience, I have to take bank loan for that, I am bit worried after seeing the comments about going jobless even after certification (I know how tough it will be). please let me know weather my one year experience will be helpful to fetch a job for me in the field of implementation. or should i continue as a end user for ever ??, How to enhance my career in the field of SAP ?? Please guide me.

Hi Srisha.

I understand your anxiety and fear about this step.  Change is always challenging and it always represents a big effort.

Be sure that having 1 year experience as user is always better than none, so it will give you advantage over freshers without any experience because you have Domain Knowledge and it currently has a high value. 

Actually I consider experience more valuable than certification.  Nevertheless, certification is an important plus and will give you more chances to be choosen.  Some customers demand certification as mandatory so I think it worths.

However, you will be a junior consultant so probably you will have to get more experience before earning as much as you expected, but once you get it it your wait will be rewarded.


Finally, my last advice is having patience.  Don't quit ypur current job until having a serious opportunity, but keep improving your skills.  Enrich your resume as much as you can and apply to any job post that fits your profile.    That will make the difference.


Regards,

Dairo
