My SAP Journey
Hope all are doing well.I am happy to write my first Blog about my Certification Experience. Hope this blog might helpful for those who want to enter into SAP.
I was worked in the MNC as a End user using SAP for sales Activities in Chennai.After My 3.7 years of Vast Experience, I planned to quit the Organization in 2013 since i felt im doing the Same kind of activities for for a long period. So i planned to change my Career with SAP.Since i want to utilise my functional Exp in SAP.So before leaving the Job i enquired one of the Leading SAP Partner Training institute in Chennai for SD Certification.But they said i cant take the Functional Module Training. since im a Technical Guy (MCA degree).So they said i can take up only technical module like ABAP. But i want to utilise my functional knowledge. SO i fought with them like for SAP Certification 2-3 years of Domain Experience & a Profession Degree is enough have both. But the Institute is stick in their point &still they are refuse me to join for SD Training. Then i asked Suggestion on SCN & i got suggestions to proceed further.Thanks to Ravi Sankar Venna & others for the Valuable Suggestions.
.So i have planned to Check the same institute in Bangalore Branch.one fine week end I went to Bangalore and enquired for SD Certification.They are clearly explained the Certification Procedures and also Explained the eligibility procedures for SD Certification even though im a MCA Degree Holder. So i planned to Join in Bangalore Centre.
Then i came back to Chennai and Apply for a Personal Loan for SAP Certification.Then I quit the job at Feb 2013 and migrate to Bangalore for SAP SD Certification on March 2013.
I enrolled for On-line Training Mode for Certification Training. when i joined in the institute, i have seen few people studying for more than 10 hours and all. So first time im getting scared whether i can complete the Certification successfully..
Then i build self confidence on me and Started to studying for Certification. Days & months rolled on..After three months i planned to give the Certification Exam. After the Exam date is announced i started to wake up everyday at early morning 4’o Clock and keep studying till 7 to 8.Then moving the Training Centre for Further Training .It keeps continuing till certification Exam day
Finally the Judgement Day came. and I was Allotted a Computer in the Exam Centre.and i read the questions carefully one by one and answering the Questions.Out of 3 hours, in my room most of them completed the Exam and within 2 hours. I’m the only guy take complete entire 3 hours to complete the Exam. Finally i click the Submit Button, only Few things came on my mind like my Training Cost,Certification Exam Cost & My loan.
Finally my handwork gets rewarded completed the Certification with 94% 🙂 . Now the worry about Job.Again Everyday started to prepare to attend the Interviews.It is not an easy to get an interview as as Certified Fresher. And i keep attending the interviews and Preparing for next 6 months.Finally after 6 months i got a job in a Major FMCG as a Contract Position. i started to work hard in the Contract role and even some days i worked more than 12 hours too & Learnt lot of things.After 1.6 years of my hard work finally get rewarded and i was absorbed as a Permanent Employee.
Those Who are Certified & waiting for job, be Patience and Update your knowledge Dont loose your hope.
All the best.
