Hi Partha

Thanks very much for replying to my message.

I would certainly contact the Co-op opportunities. May i know what are Co-op opportunities?

Yes besides IT implementation, i think i would target even having accounting Jobs as core of ERP implementation is knowing Accounts.

I would also certainly plan to do some higher studies. I have identified some finance courses in demand like CGA, CMA etc.. I donot know how tough it would be or how costly they would be.

Yes, the job of Proffessor, or trainer of Oracle Applications Financials would be good idea.

I definitely believe there would lot of such people in finance and ERP area looking to make decent career in Canada. This discussion forum would be useful to all such people.

I would request all other forum members to give their feedback and suggetions.

Thanks once again

Sharma

Dilip,

Co-op is a form of internship which allows foreign trained immigrants to gain Canadian work experience in their field of expertise. If you are paid a stipend then it is called co-op, otherwise it is volunteer service (at least that is what I think it is, and am open to be corrected)

A few other thoughts just crossed my mind:

1. Before leaving India, make sure you have tied up with your former bosses so that they can act as referrals, when needed. Companies here are becoming increasingly particular about employment history and reference checks.
2. Make the appropriate arrangements with your educational institutions and professors so that they are aware and ready to send transcripts and references as and when required. It is such a waste of time and money to set up from here, if needed.
3. And finally, in case it takes some time to get the employment of your choice and you are looking for alternatives then do not rule out the financial services sector. The only reason I am saying this is because I am told some of these institutions like Edward Jones have excellent training programs detailing every aspect of professional selling. It does not matter whether you continue or not but you at least emerge wiser and richer in that essential survival skill required in North America marketing yourself.

Good luck and have a safe trip.

Partha has very rightly put things down here. Once you're here start your (people) networking as soon as possible. Get in touch with local CD's, I'm sure they'll be willing to give you a hand, atleast I try and do whatever I can.

Good Luck & welcome to Canada.

SAP BW
DesiTiger

The feedback that I am getting from my business associates regarding SAP is as follows:

1. SAP is ramping up it's own consultancy/professional services setup. It is on a hiring spree an hence a good prospective employer itself for SAP consultants.

2. SAP BW is relatively new but gaining increasing recognition. The module that is expected to HOT in the future is MDM. I suppose that stands for Master Data Management and am told that SAP consultants with BW & MDM would be in great demand for quite some time to come.

3. There seems to be a shift in emphasis towards mySAP which I presume is the web enabled version of SAP.

Overall, things seem to be looking up for SAP consultants.

Is your SAP BW friend a Canadian citizen and interested in opportunities with one of the Big Four in the US? If so, please tell him to send his resume to me. I can ensure that his resume would reach the right desk, right person and perused at least once. Thereafter, it enters the domain called LUCK.

Hope this helps.
