As discussed, the future of SAP jobs lies in more certification and business-centric training and credentials. However, regardless of whether you’re a technical or functional SAP consultant, it isn’t enough to accumulate credentials and certifications. You also need to interview well to break into SAP job, or to move into another SAP module.
To that end, here are some helpful resources to help you ace SAP interviews:

Be warned: Memorizing answers to common questions, or attempting to substitute glib responses for actual expertise, may get you an SAP job, but it won’t build your career. Instead, take the long view and build your SAP intelligence. It may take longer, but you’ll lay the foundation for a long SAP career.
