Hi,

Certification can get you a job as a fresher but that would not let you sustain for long. even as a certified consultant for you to prove your mettle it will take at least six months. in my opinion ( I repeat its only my opinion not a suggestion) learn SAP HCM from one of the institutes and gain few inputs first. Adding your real time exposure you will understand the nuances of SAP HCM and then you can go for certification. (By then you would also realise the importance of certification as well)

All the best to you and a very warm welcome to the team of SAP HCM professionals

hi Poonam ,

From your questions , I can tell u this :

In my view core experience is needed to understand the business process clearly , but at the same time you would have to know how to apply these understanding in SAP .

for e.g :

In recruitment , you will have vacancies , for which you put ad , then get potential candidates , screen them ,complete levels of interview , finalize the candidate and then Hire them .

so the same thing you will have to do in SAP too , but you would have to know how you would all this in SAP ,so you would need to understand how configuration is done in SAP .

so the bottom line is , you will have to undergo some sort of training in SAP HCM , to start working on it .

let me know if this answers your question .

Please give points if you like this answer .
