Thanks for giving a detailed overview. It sounds like a veritable smorgasbord of my previous jobs; the stuff I enjoyed and the stuff I hated.... seems like it's all there (minus SAP, of course).
That seems like a good plan. But would it take a number of years before I could actually start working as a SAP consultant? I'm really hoping to get on the fast track to SAP, if that's possible.as regards naman your other question on how else to get into SAP, these are some options i can think of.
a relatively easy way is to work for a company that uses SAP and become an end-user. these companies normally have a no training, no access policy. but you only get trained as an end-user. later on you can probably try moving to in-house support.
or look for a company that has in-house support and work with that team. when you gain enough experience, it might be easier to move to a consulting company. if you're lucky enough, you might get into a company that will send you the SAP Academy, like ours. all of my team members should complete the academy and should be certified at some point.
To answer your question- for the past few years, I've been moving through a variety of industries.... trying to find an IT job that meets 2 criteria:
- I enjoy it, or at least I'm ok staying with it for the long haul
- It enables me to attain at least some level of financial freedom
And SAP seems to meet those criteria perfectly.
I think I know where you're coming from. People who are just in it for the money don't go the extra mile; they don't really care about their work. They're always the first ones to leave the office at the end of the day.
