Require advice on SAP SD?

Dear All,

After reading a lot in SCN, I thought to open an account to learn more and grow better in SAP. However,Now I am in need to get some advice from you!

My Name is Deepak and I am 24 Years old and currently working in Logistic As Executive and SAP SD End User. I have total 3 Years of experience in same.

I have done Graduation in B.A(Distance) and currently pursuing MBA in(Operation with distance) First Semester.

My profile is as under:

Maintaining the MIS Reports, Track sheet, Coordinating with warehouse and automating the business process related to warehouse and logistic. Taking orders from our stores and following up with them regarding the delivery.

Sales Order processing, Delivery Processing, Invoice Creation. Return Order creation, Return delivery, Credit Invoice creation.

Cancellation of Invoices, Delivery, and blocking Sales orders. Creating consignment picking order, delivery,Invoice. Goods receipt, Transfer posting from Return to unrestricted, Transfer posting within storage locations, Creating Stock transfer Order, Replenishment Delivery, Transfer Invoice, Creating Excise Invoices. Generating Sales report, Stock reports, Material document lists.

Two month back I have completed SAP SD Training from a unauthorized SAP Center in 35k INR.

Now my concern is that, I am not getting any calls and when I look in job portals then everyone is requiring at least 1-2 e to e implementation or 2-3 years of experience in SAP as SD Consultant? My training center advised me to put someFAKE experience of 2-3 Years then only I would be able to get calls but I heard when we are caught then it's criminal offence and could be behind the barsπŸ˜”. And my current job timing is too hard 13-14 hours a day.But I use to study and practice 2 hours in a day and in office whenever get time then I use to practice in IDES on my own laptop.

Please let me know how to cross this hurdle? And I am not Certified as I can’t afford so huge money and taking loan is also risky because I saw in SCN people are struggling to get job in SAP SD even after getting certified? I don't know will I be able to get break or not?

So please tell me how to learn more and get break?

Thanks



Deepak

    Hi Deepak,

    Try not to get too discouraged, it's always challenging getting into a new field when you're starting off.

    Here are 5 quick tips to help get over this temporary hurdle:

    1 - Whatever you do, do not fake your experience. There's a great article from @Ravi Sankar Venna here: Why faking your CV would hunt you for life?That being said, you also have to frame your experience correctly. If you have 3 years as a end user with exposure to all the processes you've listed AND you help resolve issues (though not in SPRO), this should be showcased on your resume.

    2 - Don't waste your money on a certification. As you've seen in other posts, the certification won't guarantee you a job and you're already ahead given you are an end user and have exposure to a lot of the SD processes already.

    3 - Ensure your resume has the right keywords recruiters are looking for and highlights your experience. Make sure you have a LinkedIn profile (again, with relevant key words). It's less about titles and more about your experience. I know consultants who spend years only doing data conversion and have no exposure to actual processes- unfortunately, I was one of them a few years ago!

    4 - You don't have to be a consultant to offer process improvement suggestions to your IT manager. Although your manager may be working with consultants, if you have an idea or suggestion of how you can improve the processes, come up with a design and propose it. Take initiative!!

    5 - Network, network, network. You've already taken the first step by joining SCN. Join relevant LinkedIn groups. Ideally, attend in-person networking events, if they exist.

      Hi Lan,

      Thanks a lot for the suggestions.

      • Yes, I read this blog it's very nice and Eye opener for Freshers like me who completes course from Unauthorised centers and eagerly looks for opportunities.😊
      • Yes I too read in blogs that certification doesn't guarantee a job and a few weeks ago I read those books through my friends TSCM62_62 these in this book I found it's interesting but just for basic level.But, for freshers in IT Company here in India companies do have some walk-in and I think they directly contact to authorized partners. Hence, it becomes much difficult to find companies where walk-ins are held?😒
      • Yes I have maintained my profile in every possible networking sites but only I receive is job for Experience only.πŸ˜”
      • Hence It becomes more irritating without any jack,calls etc.


      Thanks

    Dear Deepak,

    Even after getting Certification there is no Job Guarantee. But Certification adds value compared to a person without certification.

    Good to know that you are practicing everyday.

    My advise is not to keep fake experience. Even if you get a job with fake experience, you wont be able to perform as per expectations and you will be fired or the damage will be done to the Project. With Fake Experience you will have a Guilty feeling that you have cheated an Organization.

    Learn and Practice SD well and since you are a end user of SAP SD, you can try to contact the IT Project Manager of your Organization to get an opportunity as junior SAP SD Consultant.

    All the Best.

    Regards

    Shaik

      Hi Shajid,

      Thanks a lot!

      Yes, I am striving not to lose hope. But, here in Gurgaon and Delhi NCR I have checked in almost IT SAP Companies and MNCs, Manufacturing companies but these are looking for experienced consultant only. NO opening for SD Freshers. 😒

      However, I have 3 years of experience but still I am ready to work in less pay 20k,25k,30k.....but the problem is that NO opportunities are there for freshers.😊

      Recently I got 3 mail 1 from Manufacturing 2,3rd from Big IT Companies when I called them they said are you working as SAP SD Consultant?Do you have experience of minimum 1 e to e implementation or 2-3 years of support experience I said no then she said we are looking for exp consultant only.😭

      I don't know till when I will not lose my hope.πŸ˜”

      Thanks

    Deepak,

    Looking into your current profile, you are working with warehouse and logistics/delivery execution. Depending upon your interest and exposure to SAP (as an end user) you could check if SAP EWM could be some thing for you.

    It has more demand because of the less number of analysts compared to supply of SD analysts. But that does not mean it will be easy or the learning curve will be less.
