Please help on Career Guidance

Hello experts,

I am a fresher in SAP. I have previous experience as a Manual Tester for 3 Yrs in the IT Industry doing "Black Box" testing, writing test cases, raising bugs, prioritizing them and assigning them to development team. But last year I received a pink slip when the industry was facing a recession along with many other teams and team-mates. I always wanted to shift to a different career more challenging rewarding and less prone to the recessions and down-times, and took this as the right opportunity. It was then that I started concentrating on SAP as an ERP and finding how I could fit into SAP. I saw that I had no domain expertise or experience and no commerce background (as I did Bachelor of Engineering and hail from a technical background) and do not fit into modules like SD,MM,FI,CO, etc. I thought ABAP was a best suit to me to start off as a technical guy in SAP.

Now please let me know if there is a better workaround than ABAP for me. If ABAP is the best-suited module,then how can I find a career without any experience in SAP-ABAP (though I have learnt ABAP on my own attending classes by seniors & experienced people).

All/any guidance for my ambiguity are welcome as this is a question of my career.

Awaiting responses.

Satya Prakash

    Hello Satya,

    if you want to stay in the technical arena you could also consider focusing on a newer topic area such as Mobility and develop your skillset there.

    This blog post explains a bit more about the demand for developers in that area. It might also be worthwhile just browsing through some related SCN spaces to see the discussions and help you make up your mind.

    Good luck on your endeavours!
