How is it easy (possible ?) to get job as SAP ABAP Fresher in India ?
Hello I am Ankur from India,
I have been reading all posts on SCN from months before I actually started my training.
I completed my SAP ABAP training and certification in May 2015 from Atos India. Training was really good. Concepts are very clear.
Before approaching to SAP, I had 2 years of experience, I worked with many technologies such as PuppetLab Enterprises, AngularJS, MySQL, Laravel, Neo4j, MongoDB, Amazon AWS Cloud, Unix basics, VMware, GIT, JIRA tool etc. So learning and understanding ABAP was not that much difficult task.
Problem is that even though I have an experience, I am considered as a fresher (yes in SAP). I started looking for vacancies for SAP ABAP freshers. Companies like Capgemini and Reliance had openings but only for those who have more that 60%+ in their 12th HSC. In Indian market, there are many vacancies for SAP ABAP associates having atleast more than 2 years of experience. Other few who had freshers vacancies never contacted back.
I am already done with registering on all popular online job portals. Now I literally feel like sinking in the middle of the ocean. Till the time, I used to hear from people that only few of them got SAP jobs who did that certification. I thought to go ahead as I have good programming knowledge and background and yes I cleared with 83%, can crack the interview.
At SCN, I read good articles about interviews but they are helpful for that phase which comes after getting an interview call.
Still the day has not yet arrived that would make me think SAP was a waste of money (still I would say an investment) and time.
Now the rubber band of Patience is the only key and do study, wait and watch, study, wait and watch, thats what I can do as far as I am thinking.
If anybody here can assists me or rather I would say give more ideas and inputs about getting calls, then it would be really appreciable.
