THINK BEFORE DOING SAP CERTIFICATION

Dear all,

I am amit..

having 84% and 75% in highschool and intermediate

having 70% in btech mech

having 6 years of automotive experience

having passed certification in PP with 60%

STILL NOT A SINGLE INTERVIEW CALL(only two introductory call from recruiters) for interview after 4 months of certification..very pathetic condition

i have also left my job as i found studying difficult during job and institute said me there are lot of jobs for fresher..but now when i have done it after donating 250000/- rs to them..they even not entertaining my mails and saying to me that you are not patience..

days are passing and no call from anyside

SAP certification in india has no value if considered alone but if done with previous SAP experience then it will be beneficial..

Freshers in sap (even they have certification) will get no jobs..its clear..

You can get job in SAP certification as a fresher when

1. you have jack in a company

2. Your luck is bright

DO SAP certification

1. When you are in that SAP field( i am forcing on SAP word ) in which you are doing certification cuz everyone wil ask you in introductory call that have you worked earlier in SAP After that their technical questions which you have to pass

2.Or you have sure jack..

Its not worth the money..your life will be toooooo hard after this certification..better will be stick to your job and invest this money in MBA or business somewhere..

    8. Practice the system

    9. Try to prepare notes for interview questions

    10. Last but, not least, do not loose your hope.

    All the best.

    • Hi Ravi,

      I was in TCS for 3.8 years, worked on SAP IS-Utility module as an end user in a utility domain. Latter I completed foundation on SAP SD from one of the Kolkata (India) based institute. Almost 6 month gone and I am looking for a job in SAP. All companies are hiring people those who have minimum 3 years of experience on a particular module. People are taking fake experience form those kind of place who are doing business like this. I want to be transparent according to my knowledge always. To avoid such situation I am planning for certification but all of my nearest an dearest one are saying that certification is just waste of money. I never want to add any fake in my CV. Please do let me know what I should do after having around 4 years of SAP end user exp. on IS-U module? Where I completed foundation on SD should I go for certification to get a job?

      --

      Thanks & Regards

    Thank you Nathan,

    To answer your questions,

    As I enrolled with SAP Education partner for the training and certification, I received the SAP authored and published books. These books are divided based on each week's training goals and concentrate completely on the clear understanding than just clearing exams.

    I happened to ask institute as well as the trainer if they can share some dummy questions/ mock test papers, but all of them replied that questions will be based only and only on the books. All I am supposed to do is study religiously, which I did not but yes, I gave the best of mine.

    I would like to note here the method of examination held by SAP because it may shed a light on some false claims of portals/institutes/organizations/individuals about providing SAP "so called" certification dumps.

    Exam is held in presence of a proctor who is an SAP employee. He/She carries out a thorough check of attendees identity. The questions that appear on your screen are fetched nearest SAP exam server (I am from India so in my case the nearest servers belonged to Singapore). This server has bank of 1000+ questions related to a module and are fetched into the examination session created by you at random, so there's no guessing as to which question you'll really face. Sounds too dramatic, I know, but yes, that's how it is. 😊

    Now to answer your second question.....

    The biggest help I could take from SCN at that moment was regarding, how to tackle the whole issue of coping with examination stress. I belong to modest means, so a lot of money was at stake for me. There are already very well written documents on SCN about do's and dont's on making it though training and certifications. I'll not go into that one because, It's altogether a different ball game and people with more than 3-4 certification have shared their experience (mine's just one) which I think is more elaborate and well... experienced.

    In case you are looking forward to a certification, do let me know if anything further needs to answered. I'll be glad and willing.

    Regards,

    Ameya Bobhate

    P.S. I know it's a very lengthy reply. 😔 But now you know why it took some time to materialize. 😉

    Hi,

    I did my SAP Certification in SD with 1.6 years of experience in Sales and I am facing the same problem as you. I will also advice all the people who donot have prior SAP experience, that do not do SAP certification until u have an assured job.

    Hello All,

    Since the thread is not closed, I thought, I may share my experience.

    After an year of experience, primarily on ABAP stack, I completed my certification for Basis on SAP NW 7.31 with things in mind like.... Java stack, Oracle exposure (Worked on DB2 at earlier Org.) and a much needed recognition from SAP.

    After my cert, I hunted like a hungry Hyena and secured a job in a month. But, after starting again, I realized that in India around 90% of resumes floating around in my domain are FAKE.

    I am not sure how people crack interviews with such fake profiles, while I have been grilled for not less than an hour and a half in every interview that I appeared. Which sorta made sure that whatever I mentioned in my resume is true.

    Can anyone shed a light on HOW to really go on with a career when everyone seems to take a short-cut and make you look stupid coz you can't lie.

    Pardon the words, but I am really dis-oriented. I'll appreciate the inputs.

    Thank you and Regards,

    Ameya Bobhate

    Hi Amit,

    I can understand your predicament and i totally agree with you.

    Nothing can replace experience for a SAP Freshers, not even a certification. In fact, paying huge amount of money for SAP Training & Certification is a huge wastage of time also in my opinion.

    Nothing can replace live project experience. Those wanting to get into SAP must have their game plan ready before they dive into it.

    Ideally, look for companies which can train and also give your requisite project experience. That is the best way of getting an entry into this industry in my view.

    While i hope that by now you would have achieved some success, do let me know if you need any assistance in terms of guidance.

    Regards

    Mahesh
