It’s hard to believe that just a year ago I began my journey at SAP. Traveling from Vietnam to Germany, I had no professional work experience, nor could I proficiently speak the German language. All I knew was that I wanted to get real business experience and follow my long-held passions of drawing, photography, and movie-making.
Despite my initial unease, I quickly learned that neither of my fears would be a barrier to my internship experience at SAP. SAP is truly an international company made up of people from all over the world. With that support, I joined the Services Portfolio Team within a few weeks and was immediately involved in all types of internal communication topics.
I quickly learned a lot about what solutions SAP offers and how SAP helps their customers with software adoption. What really caught my interest though was the scale to which SAP operated on. The software portfolio is huge, and in order to help customers get adopted, SAP offers hundreds of services. This is obviously not always easy for our sales colleagues to always be up to date. So this is where my challenge began.
I was lucky the spirit within my team was so open to new ideas. I was given complete freedom to fully express my creativity and received all the support, software and tools I needed to make videos, animations, and graphic design. I even had the opportunity to make a video of my own showcasing my experience called Life at SAP. I can truly say I fun working in a creative and virtual environment.
As a student, I’ve learned there are a number of ways to qualify myself for a job in the SAP ecosystem. One of the best is the SAP Learning Hub, Student Edition. With the ability to learn anytime and anywhere at one’s convenience, it’s an educational opportunity you can’t pass up.
At SAP, it does not really matter whether you are a full time employee or an intern, what position you have, or what experience you’ve started with. Innovation is always encouraged. There is always a chance to follow your passions here at SAP!
