If you are going to work in SAP where English is the language used, I advise you to improve your written English skills and punctuation, and if English is not your native tongue, work on the spoken language until your communication skills in it are as perfect as you can make them. Clear and concise communication benefits you and anyone you work with.

If you have the opportunity to work in SAP first, do that and get experience - that is what impresses a potential employer more than certification in my opinion. Certification is more like icing on the cake plus it can be costly. Certification without real-world experience to back it up is largely useless.

You've got it all there. If you search this forum for 'certification', you'll find many thread with the same question - and answer...
As for what module to go for, it depends entirely on your knowledge of business processes.

bigben333,

Do not waste money on certification if you are new to SAP. . You could join some training class wich offers placement help. Try to get in as an intern if you can.

You can choose from any modules (MM, PP, FI, SD, HR..., CRM, PLM) . If you do not have any exposure to any business function you can choose MM, SD , CRM these are some modules which are in high demand.

advise 1: your language is important. so do not think people were trying to put you down for your typos. they were just being candid.
advise2: do a search on certification you will find all the info you need to make an informed decision.

Hi Everyone

I am new to sapfans. I would like to point out that clear written and spoken language is not a preferred, but an essential quality that employers are looking for. There are 1000's of certified consultants out there and if you can't communicate clearly across all company levels - you're not in the game.

As for those individuals who do not have previous SAP experience, I suggest you look into SAP Business One and then progress to R/3 / ECC6 in 2-3 years. SAP Business One package was developed for small to medium businesses and I know several people who found it easier to join as a trainee/apprentice with a smaller company.

If you need further details, let me know, I can ask my colleagues to provide more info on SAP Business One training and employment.

Thanks.

I am highly impressed with your English skills and your clear and concise way of expressing yourself.

You say you don not hav any domain experience. No problem! Forget eltrx and techinaical modules. Go with MECHATRONICS!

You have just strenghtened my belief of quitting this ever helpfull and prompt forum.
Asking a question here makes me feel as if i am using snowballs to break a concrete wall.i guess you don't like rookies here .
all the best to everyone here who seems have graduated from a forums that teach you to pick on newcomers

Well we certainly don't need any more crybabies and wannabes - what with all the regulars having that covered, it *is* hard for a newbie crybaby to get any traction.

Reading the back and forth you got some good advice, you got links, you got pointed to topics and threads. You got a lot of handholding in spite of your vague and broad questions. But just because things weren't handed to you on a silver platter with a detailed instruction manual, you threaten to quit the forum.

The SAP market is overcrowded now and the rates are plummeting anyway. The ones who will succeed are those who bring superior skills and determination to the table, and who are not easily discouraged. No one can map out for YOU, what you must do - that's up to you and if you are the type who must rely upon others for direction in your life, I'd have to say SAP is not for you.
