Nowadays, there is a crazy of getting certified for most of the people its a good way to add a charm in their profile or for some people in fact many people think that once they become SAP Certified the offer letter is next what they are going to get. but they reality is just the opposite to explaining you well I’ll take a situation for you Once it so happen that a senior and mid level of experience people who have done the certification got stuck in a problem for 2-3 days but couldn’t solve it, Later a junior consultant(3-5 yrs exp.) with no certification and he just solve the problem Right Away and other people were astonished by his skills the reason for this just that this guy has been practicing rigorously answer so he was capable to tackle the problem
In a same manner when the fresher gets certified I would say that he has now conquer the tip of the ice berg but still he have to fight for the portion beneath the sea. So still there is lot of knowledge a fresher has to gain.
On the other hand this doesn’t mean that that its useless to get certified my personal opinion on that is you must check yourself on these thumb rule made by me.
1. Must have at least 3yrs of experience.
At least 2 implementation cycle of SAP—–> Point suggested by Miguel Alvear
2. Must have worked on multiple functional modules(say 2-3 modules)
3.Always try to do the certification when your company pays for you as its very costly.
So if you do certification on my thumb rule I hope the you will get the real benefits of certification like increase in Designation, Salary and better working opportunity.
