How to Become the Top Candidate on Every Recruiter’s List

What would you do if your school offered a course that allowed you to learn where and when you wanted and at your own pace? What if this same course turned you into a job candidate that corporate recruiters from 86% of the Global Fortune 500 and 98% of the world’s 100 most valued brands would be falling all over themselves to meet? Wouldn’t you make sure you were first online (or in line) to register for this class?

Of course you would. You know that recruiters are seeking job candidates who can walk into the office and immediately use the company’s applications and systems to get the job done.

Did you also know that your school can offer a learning opportunity like this? It’s available for you right now. It’s called SAP Learning Hub, student edition.

That is a good opportunity out there for students who are yet to graduate. I wonder what difference is it to those who graduated and are seeking a great IT career.

I agree about the potential of the SAP Student Learning Hub.  However the biggest barrier for the uptake of the initiative by students is the enrollment process.  Currently SAP will not allow students to directly subscribe to the Learning Hub.  Universities are required to purchase a specified number of subscriptions which are then on-sold to students.  This has the following disadvantages:

1.  The university must commit to the use of the Student Learning Hub.  This could result in the scenario where students are keen but the academic is not and thus the students will not get access.

2.  Additional administrative effort pushed onto the university in terms of purchasing and on-selling subscriptions.

3.  The university incurs the risk of purchasing subscriptions and not on-selling all of them.

Rather than just identifying the issues I propose the following solution.  A student registers their interest for the SAP Student Learning Hub online.  An email is sent to the university contact who verifies that the subscriber is a registered student.  Payment is received online and the process is complete.

The main message from SAP in 2014 was Simplify SAP.  The current process for the SAP Student Learning Hub is far from simple.

Good Luck

Hi Paul,

thanks for sharing your feedback!

I have not come across this requirement in the many discussions we are having with universities and higher education institutions.

There is no up-front investment commitment required from universities, they can order any nr of access licenses for students as they are needed. Obviously if they purchase larger amount at once then they may qualify for larger discounts. But even then the subscriptions can be activated at any point in time within the first 12 months so the risk should hopefully be relatively small.

The main benefit of having the engagement with the universities rather than the individual student is that they can get more actively involved in the enablement around how to use SAP Learning Hub in the context of what they are teaching. I believe this is an important aspect to make the adoption a success.

To be honest, I cannot quite see the advantage in terms of administrative workload of the process you are suggesting. The student status validation does have to happen in any case so why not do it up-front instead of student by student? This may cause an even bigger workload on the universities.

However, I see your point of universities having to administer the payment process instead of the student paying directly. I will discuss with our teams what we could do there - maybe we could have a hybrid process where we decouple the ordering from the payment.

I will let you know.

Hi Arnold

Other than the increased administrative load, the current model of access is dependent on the academic having the time, motivation and support of management to purchase subscriptions for the Student Learning Hub.  The model I propose allows students to access the Learning Hub directly and eliminates the potential barriers identified above.  Surely it is about maximizing student participation in the Student Learning Hub.

Hi Ali,

thanks for your comment. For graduates if they have no prior SAP knowledge we have also a low cost enablement offering called SAP Academy Cube which in many countries is supported by government initiatives and provides equal training opportunities as with SAP Learning Hub student edition.

Let me know if you have further questions.
