Is it a good idea to continue studying PS? Is it a wise idea to start my SAP career in the PS module?
So if you consider the PS module, maybe you can approach it after you gain some SAP Logistics experience. SAP Logistics is a lot more compelling as a skill set because of all the upgrades going on to core SAP components right now. Logistics is part of the SAP core, but PS is really not, it is more of a fringe module, a second or third wave module in most cases. One thing people need to be careful about is assuming because the SAP consulting market is as hot as it has been in years that it would be easy to break in. It's easier to break into SAP than it has been in a while, but it still takes a coherent strategy, a lot of persistence, and maybe a touch of luck. The heart of that "coherent strategy" is making sure you approach SAP from a position of strength, leading with your deepest skills and connecting to SAP from that point. That's why I like the Logistics focus for you, and you can certainly keep your eyes open for Logistics/PS integration opportunities.
