How is the Job market for SAP Consultants

Now the Oracle financials course was too expensive to do here....S I decided to go to India (Bangalore and do it). Once there I also attended the full Oracle 9i DBa course. the cost of both the Apps (4 week) and Dba (3 week) was about 1/3 of what oracle Apps would cost in Canada.

But I seem to have made a mistake....One Person I know told me I should have done it from Canada and not India. I did not realise it till much later.
Of course that I dont have implementation experience is another reason that I didnt get a call till now.

Anyway If possible do it from Canada. Its costly fromIndia but could be costlier from Canada. But could be worth it.

Did you also get Oracle certification on the Apps and DBA? Once certified, I think it doesn't matter where you took your course, does it? Else why would these companies have anything called "certification".
I do agree on your second point, that it is very difficult to get ajob only on the basis of certification. It would have to be entry level jobs only and they are very few and number of people wanting them are way too many!!
So, Sandi, please do not be under the impression that a course in SAP followed by certification will be able to open the doors for you. If possible, try and get some hands on experience. That is fact goes longer than only certificaton in helping your chances of getting a job.

Mercury ,

Did u do the Apps DBA or simply Oracle Financials ??

What did they charge for the Apps DBA and 9i DBA ??

How was the course and the training ??

Dio , I am not sure if Oracle is still certifying on the Financials Track . I agree that Certification may just be an entry point and expereince is the greater learning avenue .

Manasvi .

I didnt do the Apps DBA. Did the whole of Financials track. 4 weeks. Rs 1 lac.
Did all of 9iDBA. About Rs 50,000.

The DBA course was good. Very very good teachers. Very enlightening for a person like me who was always a programmer and never cared to look deeper on how the database actually works on the inside.

The Financials course was mixed bag. Of the two teachers one was extremely bookish....which means he went through all that was in the book and the exercises and nothing else. The other one was more detailed and tried to explain the concepts....

I once made a mistake, but I was wrong about it.

ABAP should be good place to start for people with programming / sql background ........... NW guys should look more towards SAP systems - BASIS etc .
