Your career prospects in SAP will be limited until you get some hands-on configuration skills. It's too bad your current company won't help you with that. Your only option is to find another project that will help you get ahead in that direction. It won't be easy, but I think you might have enough SAP skills to land another SAP-related position. You'll probably have to be patient to get the configuration skills, but if you keep trying, you may pull it off. I wish I could give you a bullet-proof plan of action, but switching companies is the only option I can see. Certification can help you too, but it's not a cure-all for the dilemma you are facing. Some overall improvements in the economy would do wonders for increasing the opportunities for folks like yourself that need a good break to push ahead.
