How do I land a job where they accept my prior experience but give me a chance to learn SAP on their environment?
The technical architecture and operating systems of SAP projects vary from company to company. So, do some research and find out which SAP users are running on platforms that relate to your skills, and apply for technical roles in those companies. Even if your first position is not going to give you that much SAP exposure, you are better off working into SAP from within.
So, take a job in an SAP environment and get closer and closer to the project. And as for doing that research, that's the hardest part. To a certain degree, job boards like SearchSAP.com's can help you -- you can type in SAP and other keywords from your skill set and see which kinds of relevant positions come up.
