Hi

SAP has opportunites all over the place.

You just need to keep your eyes open.

Three big mistakes that freshers make are -

1. Taking the interviews lightly like any other job interview - Do remember that if you fare badly in your interview there are other 1000 takers for that job unlike other jobs. So be geared up with your basics. Read your training material and as many threads on the FI / CO Forums on SDN.

2. Moolah factor - DO NOT consider a "pay package" as one of your criteria when looking for an entry into SAP Consultancy. Or even SAP end user role, as Anand mentioned above. I am a strong believer of "free work", as you get to learn a lot on such a job and grow in the right direction, without manipulation from your "employer".

3. Not Applying for "experienced" jobs - You are not going to be sued or punished for applying to a job which requires blah-blah years of experience. So PLEASE apply for ALL FI/CO jobs that come your way and take as many interview experiences as you can- - personal, telephone, etc. Don't think that you are a fresher when it comes to applications.

I corrected all of these mistakes immediately after my certification. I went through more than 30 FICO groups on Facebook and LinkedIn and connected with unknown but knowledgeable FICO people on LinkedIn and kept asking them questions about interviews, openings, and their experiences as freshers. I worked for a Pharma company as an SAP end user for free for 3 months and gave more than 20 interviews from various SAP consulting companies during that period. My end user experiences became good stories to share during the interviews. Now I am well placed in SAP with just 6 months into it and connected to a pool of talent on and off SDN. And lastly, I did not have any domain experience. I was a "complete" fresher.

So all the best with your career!! Keep your eyes open.

Pravee,

   All that is required is a little legwork and an adjustment in your expectations.

  • How do you find companies that run SAP?
    • Compile a list of companies
      • Check job boards (Monster and Dice are good for SAP jobs.) and look for companies posting SAP requirements of any kind.
      • Also check SAP user groups (http://www.sapusergroups.com/)
    • Crossreference with companies who operate in your area
      • Look for both local companies and companies headquartered in the city of your choice. (google: "companies headquartered in XXX" where XXX is the city in which you want to work)
  • Find specific opportunities for which you are qualified
    • Go to their CORPORATE career site
      • Do not go through the job board. Resumes are sometimes channeled by source and the direct resume pile is always shorter.
      • Learn about the company. See if it has a corporate philosophy that matches your own.
    • Look for jobs for which you are ALREADY qualified.
      • Do NOT try to get an SAP support job (doing configuration) if you are a fresher and all you have is certification (especially if you don't even have certification). You’ll be competing with folks with years of experience. Use the experience you have to get a job for which you ARE qualified.
      • Look for ENTRY LEVEL jobs in your domain. You can rest assured that you will be using the SAP system once you get hired (as an end user).
  • Get a job at a company that runs SAP.
  • Once you’ve settled in and proven that you can more than do the job you were hired to do,  explore opportunities in the SAP support group. While this path will take you a little longer it is a tried and true path to a career in SAP.

In general, SAP configuration is not considered an entry level position. Yes, many folks are recruited to do SAP config work right out of college. Some get recruited out of undergrad, but it is far more typical for companies to recruit out of an MBA program. The key word in that sentence is recruited. Companies do not give those opportunities to the general population. They hand pick the cream of the educational crop. Assuming you've already graduated, that window has pretty much closed unless you are willing/able to do something extreme like work for free for 3 months as Zubin did. He was obviously ambitious and aggressive (and I applaud those qualities in him) in his search as finding a company willing to bring you on for free is an extremely rare event outside of a formal internship program. You can look for internships, but those are mostly open to folks who are still in school.

Read the following blogs to get a feel for the pathways open to you at this point

Hope this helps!

HI Zub,

This is Ritesh this side.

Frnd i am planning to pursue SAP FICO Ceritification, but i am concerned about this course & jobs after getting certified as fresher in SAP.

Although i am CA Intermediate, CS Intermediate & completed my grad in B.Com Hons. in 2008. Have practicle experience of more than 5 years in part time accountancy, 3.5 yrs full time articleship in CA Firm & currently working as an accounts executive in Real Estate Company in Delhi.

But please suggest me is there any scope being SAP FICO Certified for me as a CA Intermediate & CS Intermediate ?

Bcoz some one said to me move for SAP Certification only if you are having any professional degree like CA, MBA or from IT background.

Its my big concern. As it will be a big step for me to move in different profession at after so long.

Dear Ritesh,

So far as scope is concern, SAP has sky as a limit.

Provided you get an opportunity to prove your self.

In my personal opinion as a CA you may understand the subject batter or quicker but that may or may not help you to move in this profession.

There is one and only gate way to SAP and that is to get a JOB on implementation project. And surprisingly it has got only relevance with implementation experience and not with qualification or domain experience.

Please do analysis, is it possible to get such JOB today ?

Do one thing, just prepare a FAKE CV that you are a CA or MBA and FRESHER SAP certified consultant with handsome domain experience. Post it on any job portal and apply for SAP consultant's JOB. See how many interview calls you are getting.

You may find such real profiles on portals, awaiting for JOB!

you will come to know the real scenario at ground level.

I am not at all discouraging you, but trying to familiarize you with real life scenario so that you don't get any surprise on your career path.

In my opinion do not take any BIG step, today, there are all the chances that all your planning and calculation may go wrong.

Dear Balram,

It is very difficult to answer your "WHY".

But my own survey says that there is insufficient new SAP implementation project in the market which can absorb the incoming flow of even certified SAP consultants.

In certain cases even senior and experienced consultants are not properly utilized, forget about freshers.

This field is fraught with high costs, high unemployment and where in success ratio is very very low.

Dear Ritesh,

SAP has got nothing to do with qualification, weather you are qualified CA or Intermediate.

The main thing is there is no opening in the field of SAP for freshers. NOT AT ALLLL!!!

You will be wasting your time and money for certification if you do not have any contacts that can place you directly on Implementation project.

Batter concentrate on your CA or CS first and be qualified, you will get many more batter career options open in front of you.

Hi Balraj I have a Tip for you you can try this: As you said You have completed SAP FICO Training at Feasible Cost its fine. No harm at all. Try to show your SAP IDES FICO Configuration I mean to say SAP IDES Practice session in your CV. We have the option of creating SAP Project in IDES. If you are interested in joining Authorized center at Bangalore then visit them. Talk to them openly about your Career.  SAP Education Partners will give Placement Assistance once you complete your training and exam.

Fact of SAP Jobs with SAP Partners of India:  SAP Consultant roles are based on their Business requirement. When I make a call to SAP Partners they said me its based on business requirement. So i'm telling you the same. Do not lose hopes. Just Go on...Go On...Go on this is 3 steps for success.  I have seen the job market of India from 2 years 3 months. SAP Partners hire Certified Freshers once in 6 months.  Only thing is you need to wait that's all I can say.

Hi,

     SAP Certification is easiest way to enter in SAP for any fresher. Please do certification from know Certification partners of SAP like Atos SAP Certification Centre. Bwfore joining any training centre please check if they provide placements which can help you to find job.

Also, if you join any big company(Capgemini,Accenture...etc) who implements SAP projects, there you can join SAP team and after some SAP experience company itself provides certification with some conditions.

Hello Every One,

Thanks for posting this Post with a good title "SAP FICO Fresher Job Myth or Reality". I started a research on Myth and Reality. I was very successful in identifying the Myth as well as Reality. I have made a clear path for recent Graduates and Students, You don't have to worry about Myths. Please focus on Reality. Reality is nothing but your SAP Project Skills, SAP Configuration Skills, Strong understanding of SAP FI-GL, SAP FI-AR/AP, SAP FI-AA, SAP FI-Closing Cock Pit, SAP FI Reports, SAP CO-Cost Accounting, SAP CO Profit Center Accounting, SAP CO Product Costing, SAP CO Internal Order, SAP CO - Profitability Analysis. Also update your SAP Knowledge with new Technology SAP HANA and SAP HANA ERP Financials & Controlling.  Also update your knowledge on SAP ASAP Methodology 7.2 and 8.

If you are looking for SAP Training then Contact SourceOne Management Services Pvt Ltd, Atos or Lithan Genovate.

Hi Imran,

Its not at all a difficult task to find SAP FI or CO Fresher role. I'm telling this after doing a research on SAP Job market. If you are interested in doing SAP Certification then contact with you company for sponsorship for SAP Training. If they are sponsoring then it will be good. If they won't do so then you need to make your arrangements and invest in SAP Training (Think & Decide). Once you are certified through SAP Education Partner, they will provide placement assistance. They will place you in SAP partner companies only when they have Fresher requirement. Getting SAP Consultant roles now a days is not based on Luck, it is based on SAP Partners Business requirement only. You need to wait for your right kind of role with patience.

Hi Abhidarshi Verma,

SAP IDES means International Demo Environment System which you can get installed from Basis Consultant who do installations or you can purchase it from SAP IDES Vendor.  SAP Basis Consultants charge you Rs. 2000 for SAP ECC 6.0 and for SAP ERP 6.0 EHP 5 they charge Rs.4500 including VM Ware + External HDD without formatting your Current system laptop or Desktop.

You need to take SAP IDES Training at Feasible Cost duration is 45 days. In 45 days you will be familiar with Configuration part. This will help you to Configure SAP system on Live server @ Authorized center. In 20 days you need to practice on live server along with theory.

Hi Abhidarshi,

I second all what pramila said. When you go through a basis consultant for installation, see to it that your laptop has all the required configuration for IDES installation. I once installed IDES using VMWARE with a little bit less backup storage for data after which the system, it crashed. But after using external drive wtith appropriate configuration it worked on my laptop. So its always better to get your laptop config checked and go for IDES installation, and it will work great.

do not think that there is few guys waiting in the line. i guess so... min 3 years required for sap jobs. even client will not allow the fresher in his project. so companies also prefer experience candidates. that's the reason fresher will not get a sap job in india. it take so much of time. search your self fresher sap jobs. we can not get calls from any consultancy. i'm also fresher. i know little bit.

What is the first step you took after clearing your certification. I cleared last november 2012. Calls do come in, but they prefer atleast one implementation experience.

India hiring trend is so slow, with the current market condition i think its a long waiting line for many of us out there.

Hello Subhalakshmi  I have seen many people doing a certification with normal domain experience. But some people are not getting calls for SAP Interview. 

I have some tips for you which you can try out.

Firstly You must not include your previous experience in your cv/resume. You can just mention about your role in Work Experience, Please do not disclose full detailed information about previous experience.

Secondly, When you are certified in SAP respective module then you need to show your SAP IDES Demo Practice Session, Try to create Business Scenarios in SAP IDES relating to Financials. After completion of this task you can mention this in your CV/Resume. But never stop your SAP IDES Practice.

Well I'm not big person to advice or suggest. I'm a Fresh Graduate with out any experience. I have got entry in SAP for Authorized Training in Bangalore. And all this happened to me since I had practiced SAP IDES ECC6.0 and SAP IDES ERP 6.0 EHP 5. I had mentioned this in my CV and also got Calls from SAP Consulting companies like Deloitte, HCL Technologies Limited, Robert Bosch, Volvo IT, and many more...but I could not attend interviews during 2011, 2012, 2013 Because companies had asked Authorized Certification along with Training.

I will get it in 2013 here in Bangalore alone.

Just try my TIP if you are interested or ignore it.

At present  there are opportunities in cities like Hyderabad, Mumbai and Bangalore.  As pramila said, yes, SAP Ed partners will help you get calls from companies across India. I cleared last November, but still to be placed. As all the calls i have received so far are for Mumbai or Bangalore, i am based in Pune i couldn't opt Mumbai or Bangalore because of my family. Pune is little bit slow at present.

Every 6 months Freshers Do get opportune, but if you get one call try to crack it in one go.

Package wont be that great at the beginning, is what i heard from few of my friends. But once you are through with one implementation, it will rise up to 200%.

Hi All,

I am struggling to get a break in SAP FICO although I got one in one company, however I was on bench for 6 months and due to unavailability of projects I had to quit. Hence again I am sitting idle to get a job in SAP FICO. Can anybody help me with information on openings in SAP for 6 months or fresher.

Millions of thanks.

Hi,

I want to share one thing, I was also one day in same situation where I was having Domain experience and SAP certification. But I did landed with a job in one of the MNC. There are some time when there are opening for freshers too. You just keep trying FICO is ever demanding module.

One more thinh please try getting job as end users in any company where SAP is implemented. It will give you some more points at time of interview and atleast you will be intouch with SAP screen.

Hi Ritesh I had dreams to do CA but I did MBA Finance. Qualification is not a big matter. One of my Friend from Vizag - Mr.Pentyala Srikanth is doing SAP Certification FICO from ICAI, two days back he asked me about SAP Certification weight age for FI topics and CO Topics. You can contact him in Facebook. He is pursuing CA Final (Second group is pending). Contact ICAI Officials and clarify with them.
