Transitioning to become an SAP consultant

Hello All,

I am interested in becoming an SAP consultant. I received my Bachelor in Accounting and Masters in taxation. I got my CPA license in 2003. I am currently enrolled in a prep course for the certified associated in SAP FI. I understand that certification will not guarantee me entry in the field, but I would like feedback/insight from other consultants as to what I need to do or learn to get into the SAP field.

Any suggestions as to what other modules I need to lear/got certified in? ABAP, BW, BI, SAP Financial consolidation, etc....?

Thanks everyone.

    Hi Samir,

    Its always great and an advantage to have exposure/experience in the domain. But before you make a choice, you should decide what area do you want to be in?  Technical or Functional.  As you are from the Finance background, I would recommend you to opt and start with the SAP FI-CO module and later on may be have your hands on or learn ABAP/BI so that you can become a Techno-functional consultant.

    Getting certified definitely adds value to your professional resume, but not in fetching a job in the market.

    I would suggest you to have a look on http://scn.sap.com/community/training-and-education/certification/blog/2013/07/03/how-to-transform-yourself-from-fresher-to-staunch-sap-consultant

    Warm Regards,

    Chris Varghese.
