How to become SAP Consultant? [tips from our our employees]
Work as an SAP Consultant is often portrayed as an occupation that is certain and safe.
Statistics indicate that this is one of the most promising and profitable career paths. Nevertheless, there are numerous myths relating to this profession that can be executed in many fields. What is the reality of working in this industry and how to become an SAP Consultant? We decided to find answers to these questions directly from our employees who know best:
Marcin Janiak, Senior SAP CRM Consultant:
Work as an SAP CRM Consultant is very demanding but also provides plenty of satisfaction. Customer service systems have been developing very dynamically in recent years so the market values qualified consultants highly.
In order to start your adventure with SAP CRM, you don’t need any special qualifications or education. Motivation and the will to learn are the most important.
SAP features a broad range of training courses – technical and functional. Nevertheless, the biggest value is experience in work with the actual system. Joining a team of SAP Consultants is the best method for obtaining high qualifications quickly.
Jolanta Kalinowska, SAP ERP Consultant:
Regardless of whether you are interested in the work of a Technical or Functional Consultant, the key characteristics you need are the ability of learning and an open mind.
Our company works using the latest technologies and moves with the times. That is why even employees with long-term experience have an opportunity of developing their competencies continuously.
Rafał Madejewski, SAP SRM Consultant:
My studies combined the IT industry with business. I have always known that I would not be good to work as a typical programmer or office employee.
Many of my friends work in consulting and they have often told me about projects and how different the people, their knowledge and personalities are. This was one of the arguments that made me want to do this job.
While working as a planner at a large corporation, I have discovered my passion for SAP, or rather for its exploration. As much as my progress made it possible I tried to simplify my work with this tool.
Of course, this required me to learn the processes relating to SAP such as purchase, logistics and often warehouse. Whenever possible I was also involved in areas relating to other processes than those applicable in my role. I wanted to learn project work both from the point of view of a Solution Architect and the Key User.
At some point, I decided to leave a certain job at a corporation and face a new challenge. A friend worked at Apollogic before so after a brief conversation with him, I decided to try out. Fast, two-stage and stress-free staffing process made me realize that this is a place I would want to stay at for a longer.
Przemek Święcicki, SAP BI Consultant:
Work of a BI Consultant is never boring.
I learn something new every day, discover new technologies and participate in ambitious projects. Such a career path does not allow for me to be stuck in one place even for a moment.
