jakehyungjikleeis a positive, upbeat man who is full of life and adventure. He currently attends the Kelly School of Business at Indiana University and has an impressive list of previous coop jobs and work experience, not to mention the fact that he is a Student SAP Mentor for 2015. Jake is truly a professional, smart passionate man who likes to have fun.
Fortunately for me I had the pleasure of rooming with Jake at the SAPPHIRE NOW Conference in Orlando where I received the privilege to get to know Jake. His confidence and kindness is something that illuminated off of him and on to others – Jake always made sure everyone in our group of students was having fun and sharing a laugh.
Jake spends time spreading the word about SAP and has created a Facebook Group that reaches out to students and others on hot SAP topics. Jake finds what he believes is the most beneficial and interesting material to his demographic and highlights it through various media streams. He believes that it is key for a younger demographic to understand the capabilities and benefits that SAP products provide. Jake works hard on promoting SAP to university students at IndianaU and North America. Below is Jake’s SAP Success Story:
What successes have you achieved with the help of the SAP Community/SCN? How has the SAP community/SCN benefited you?
I’ve launched a Facebook community that provides up to date news and issues that relate to SAP. As a result, on a daily basis, I study about SAP to provide the most interesting stories about SAP.
During your association with SAP what has been the most positive experience for you?
The SAPPHIRE NOW conference helped me gain a comprehensive picture of SAP's impact. As well, the online education that SAP provides for free. There are some educational materials that provide introductory information about SAP's offerings and capabilities.
What have been your contributing strengths to the SAP/SCN community?
Fields of studies, SAP related work experiences and school organization leaderships. (This includes Jake's Facebook Group that he started, which involves sharing information with fellow classmates to promote SAP to students around North America.)
How about your biggest weaknesses? Any skills-gap that you’d want to improve?
No technical background. As a business major, I wish that I had technical understanding of SAP operations...
What are your current/future goals in terms of being a part of SAP community? Please be specific.
My current goal is to spread SAP presence to my business school's underclassmen. Early influence is critical to gaining long-term users.
If you could work on any project(s) that would benefit yourself and SAP, what would it be and why?
It would interest me to work on a small business network simulation involving SAP products. These simulations would involve supplier and buyer, auditor and client personnel.
Do you have an SAP Success Story to share? Please contact me on SCN to set up a short interview or fill out this template:SAP Success Story. The idea is to gain insights into what helped execute your successes in the SAP ecosystem, as well as showcase the impact you have made within the community and the impact the community has made to you! You can also tag a nominee and encourage them to blog their SAP Success Story as well as tag myself so the data can be collected.
