I am new to SAP community. I am a Computer Engineer by qualification with almost 1.5 years of work experience.

However, i want to switch my career domain to SAP. But the problem is, i have absolutely no idea of 'where to start'. I have gone through the various SAP training and certification catalogue but it has only made me more confused.

So, i request you all to help me choose the right step. Please guide me.

Thanking you.

Dear Kushagra.

I would start with the course SAP01 ( for the general overwiew and after that for example the SAPNW ( SAP is wide and deep but I think this courses are good for the first steps in SAP.

Hi Kushigara,

When you say you are a Computer Engineer with 1.5 years of experience, what experience do you mean? Have you been programming? Have you been administering systems? Have you been building computers from a hardware perspective?  It would help us to know a bit more about what you have been doing and what you would like to do.

You might want to start with SAP Career Blog Links. I particular:

     FAQ for SAP NetWeaver Admin (SAP Basis) Careers  if you like system administration

     FAQ: Java vs. ABAP Programming Careers if you like programming

     FAQ: Different Career Paths in SAP to get an idea of what types of jobs that are out there.

     Advice for Recent College Graduates (aka "Freshers") to get an idea of how to start a career in SAP.

Hope this helps!

Best regards,
