    It's all about hands-on experience and who knows you. So get your hands dirty via volunteer work, internships, playing around on your own systems (which may prove difficult for SAP), and get out there and network. Here are some TechTarget articles I've written on the subject of IT careers that may help.

    What kind of Job are you looking for? One where you would be an SAP user, or one where you would be an IT specialist (either as an employee or a consultant)? In your posting you mentioned they were asking for direct experience with SAP but I couldn't tell if that was from the user side or the IT side. If it's as a user and you have no experience you'll have to explain your way around that in the interview. by saying you have the business skills and would only need to learn how that specific company uses SAP. In this case the certification would help because at least you've been exposed to SAP. If it's as an IT specialist, I'd start looking at some of the consulting companies (deloitte, accenture, cognizant) as they often have entry level consulting positions for people with little or no experience. They work you hard but you'll pick up alot of knowledge because they generally put the junior people on projects with senior consultants to help in their learning. After a few years of that you'll have enough experience to jump to another company if you wanted. The truth is that the certification is just a starting point and in my opinion carries very little weight in hiring decisions. With the exception of the consulting companies most companies looking for SAP talent are looking for experience over certification. Hope this helps.
