I have a bachelor's degree in engineering and an M.B.A in marketing. I have seven years of functional experience in marketing at a Fortune 500 company. In the same company I was a core team member when they implemented SAP and was a power user for three years. I am presently working as a marketing consultant for an instrumentation company for the past year, but I want to move into SAP consulting.
Initially I planned to consult on the sales and distribution (SD) module, but as I went through your suggestions, I found that investing in mySAP CRM would be beneficial. I have good analytical as well as good communication skills. I have done some reading in the SAP SD module and I am conversant (30%) with the principles. Do I need to have SAP SD implementation experience or can I do a course in mySAP CRM (marketing module)? Before recruiting a mySAP CRM fresher, do companies insist that the candidate have prior SAP SD implementation experience?
