Many people who have domain experience are wondering how to find SAP FICO fresher jobs? Most companies want to hire experienced SAP experienced consultants. But then, if no one gives a chance to a fresher to get a job, how it is possible to get experience in SAP FICO? Meaning that people with only domain experience are likely to remain where we they are… However, the situation is not hopeless and in this post we would like to share some advice for finding SAP FICO fresher jobs.
SAP FICO Fresher Jobs
First, we would like to share experience of one SAP FI/CO consultant who also had to start as a fresher one day. He was in same situation where he only had domain experience and passed SAP FI certification. However, he managed to find a job in one of the MNC. He said that some time these companies have openings for freshers too. His advice is that you just need to keep trying, because SAP FI/CO is ever demanding module.
Another his advice is that you should try to land a job as an SAP end user in any company where SAP is implemented. This experience will be beneficial and will differentiate you from other candidates at time of the job interview. The last, but not the least is that with this kind of job you will be in touch with SAP screen and become familiar with the system.
Three Common Mistakes People Make When Looking for SAP FICO Fresher Jobs
Indeed, there are opportunities for SAP jobs all over the place. You just need to keep your eyes open. However, you should avoid three big mistakes that SAP FICO freshers often make:
1. They do not prepare for the job interview well enough. Please remember that if you perform badly during your interview, there are other 1000 candidates for that SAP job. Interviews for SAP FICO fresher jobs are different from interviews for other jobs, because the position is highly competitive. So be geared up with your basics. Read SAP FI questions that may be asked at interviews and check as many threads on SAP FI/CO forums as possible.
2. They do consider a salary package as one of the main criteria when looking for SAP FICO fresher jobs. Or even when looking for SAP end user roles. You should not be very much concentrated on money issue as you get to learn a lot on such a job and grow in the right direction, without manipulation from your employer.
3. They do not apply for SAP jobs that require some experience, because they think they are not good enough for them. Come on! You are not going to be sued or punished if apply for a job, which requires 1-3 years of experience. If an employer do not think you are experienced enough, your resume will simply be ignored. Not a big deal. You should apply for all SAP FI/CO jobs that come your way and participate in as many job interview as you can – personal, telephone, etc. Do not think that you are a fresher when it comes to jobs applications.
Here is some more inspiring insides from a person who also desperately looked for SAP FICO fresher jobs:
“After I passed my SAP FI Certification, I went through more than 30 FICO groups on Facebook and LinkedIn and connected with unknown but knowledgeable FICO people on LinkedIn and kept asking them questions about interviews, openings, and their experiences as freshers. I worked for a Pharma company as an SAP end user for free for 3 months and gave more than 20 interviews from various SAP consulting companies during that period. My end user experiences became good stories to share during the interviews. Now I am well placed in SAP with just 6 months into it and connected to a pool of talent on and off SDN. And lastly, I did not have any domain experience. I was a complete fresher.”
With this, I would like to conclude this post and wish you all the best with your career! Keep your eyes open 🙂
