What you people think about doing SAP SD course after 3 years exp in Sales

Hi all, I want some suggestions from you guys. I have done B.Tech and have around 1.5 years exp in Maintenance and around 3 years exp in Sales and Marketing. I am looking to do SAP-SD to get into IT sector. Please suggest me if it is right choice.I am concerned about the job after certification as I have read lot of negative review about that. Though I have my friend in the same industry and he has assured me that I will get the job but it is a risk given the amount of investment( about 4 hundred thousand INR). And I really have to stretch me hard to arrange that much money. I encourage the persons who have undergone similar circumstances to reply.

    Dear Viaks, I totally agree with TW & Shiv. Its going to be tough for you as market become like that and in such a condition you can expect some thing after doing certification also if you are thing of your financial lines. And if you consider this as factor then the way suggested by other member is best one for you with some struggle at starting phase. Consider all pros and cons but doing certification will guarantee you a Job and when it come to hiring by BIG 5 or MNC they one in a blue moon hire certified freshers and the ratio will be 100:1 (means out of 100 certified they will pick 1/2). I hope you got my point, so think of the alternate way which I will also recommend you. All the Best... Regards, Sumeet Sah

    Hi,

    you decision is correct,instead of spending huge amount on certification try to get into some small company for initial experince and after gaining enough experience try to move to mnc where you can do the certification cost effectively.

    Viaks,

    For newcomers (even with prior domain experience), it is difficult to break in to the SAP market.

    Probably the first three years would be tough and the financial rewards would also be less (salary).

    If you enjoy working in SAP SD and are ready to look in to this profession from a long term perspective (8 to 10 years), then (I would say) go for it.

    Hi Viaks,

    Me to placed in the same situation, what i had received from my SAP expert don't go for SAP certification instead you can go ahead and check the online course and learn the basic things in SD as mentioned below:

    In SD processes, an important part is the Complaint processes. (Re order, Credit memo, Invoice correct, Subsequent delivery free etc.)

    Take a look at below thread:

    http://scn.sap.com/thread/3352072

    Standard SD processes:

    Look in to below thread, it talks about some issue related to a process

    http://scn.sap.com/thread/2089626

    These kind of threads could be good to exercise your understanding w.r.t. SD processes.

    Regards,

    premk.

    Thanks TW and shiva for your suggestions. Actually I am more concerned about the worst case scenario when I would not find the job at all or job with hardly any salary in comparison to the possible investment on certification. Because this is something I really can't afford at all as I might be taking some loan(not from bank).
