The systems and softwares are the same everywhere. Its now you present them. I have had discussion on this forum before on this point and I keep getting amazed at the number of qualified people with IT experience in Canada without a job in theri field.

Give you an example of a person we just started to apply from from India with 3-5 years of experience in 10g and ERP systems. The person since 2004 did not get a job. We just started to apply for him just last week to 1,000 companies and he has 10 interviews. I wish I could share some of the type of replied he gets from the potential employers but its confidential.

All I want to say is keep applying there is one company out there that will appreciate your experience and background.

WAFY worked for me for free, as an appreciation and to prove his point over Canadian desi. I was amazed by the way you start getting calls and interview within a day of their mass mailing of application. I received one offer within 15 days of the mailing start date and a very good offer in about 3 months of the start date. I would endorse that mass mailing formula is a success in Canada. I would also like to point out that in this whole process I was open to move to any part of Canada for good job. WAFY is aware, I moved 3 cities to finally settled down in a small town in Northern Ontario. No excuses, I have a family too, we are still into 80% Indian diet, my child is in school too etc....Now, I make above average income and can say I am settled in Canada for good. Thanks WAFY.

Grounding is the key


The most important aspect is to have the necassary years put away getting grounded at the very jobs that need ERP solutions without it do not even go there. I know people who joined the overnight boom in SAP \"teaching gravvy train"\, dishing out Xeroxed courses from their basements and garages charging $2000 per module. Who would you call a sucker here the teaching shop or the student. I will sad for many who wasted 7 months do a \\\"full time"\\\ course for naught.

BTW I like the way you IT guy use \" "\ it makes that word seem so wacko, like a 25 years old directors special. Yes donot get \"sucked"\into these teaching shops without gettin a list or \"%"\ of student placements.

ERP Market : Myths and Reality
Hi CDs,

It was worth watching the valuable comments of fellow CDs on Canadian ERP market. I am SAP functional consultant with 3 years experience in SAP implementation ( In India). I came to Canada in Jan, 2007 with lots of expectations and hope. Soon, I found that getting job in Canada was not that easy. My experience as under.

1) Canadian ERP market differ from Indian market in terms of resource requirement. Canadian employers prefer recourses with Canadian experience.

2) Difficult to get job with one module expertise( Say SD or MM etc.). You need to be techno-functional or techno-multi functional. You need to hv knowledge in ABAP, testing and good exposure to user exits. In India there is clear cut division between technical and functional modules.

3) The most important one is soft skills and good communication and presentation skills.

My advise to freshers ( I mean fresher to ERP jobs) is that it is not easy to get an entry in to ERP job. Most of the institutes both in India and Canada will teach you basics ( say 10% ) and you hv to acquire enough knowledge through self practice and going through SAP help files.

The best way to get an entry is to get train in SAP and get certification. If you hv certification under your belt, chances of getting interviews will be bright, then later getting job purely depends on how well you do yr interview.

Best wishes to all who want to jump in to ERP boat.

ERP market in Ontario
Guys,



Can any one tell me how is the SAP ERP market today ? I have SD certification from SAP AG. I did my certification in India from an authorised SAP education partner.


I shall be soon completing 1 year and a half in the field with 1 e2e. Is it worth leaving paying job in India and hunt for a job in Toronto / Mississauga ?



Thanks in advance

Getting into SAP ERP Functional....guide

Friends,

I could not resist to post this reply.

If you are an engineer with over ten years of industrial experience...from India...it is not at all difficult to get into SAP ERP functional in US...not in Canada...

You should be in a position to orient and justify your experience in material management or production planning....otherwise in sales....for those ten years....which is possible for any indian matured engineers with functional domain experience..then you are sure of getting atleast 30 interviews per month.....

What you require is 3 to 6 months of training in SAP functional module. May be these so called desi training inst could cater for that....if you are sincere & focused...yes it is possible to get in & survive....in SAP ERP world...

cheers
