Consulting

Hey gang, I am an IT consultant specializing in SAP software. I want to move to industry someday. It doesn’t have to be SAP, or even systems really. How can people like me do this? What’s your story?

SAP says: The best companies run SAP. Find those companies and target them with your unique capabilities. Given the number of S4/Hana implementations, you should be able to find an industry job post-COVID and help the best companies become better with S4/Hana.

Haha good point. I recently made a move and I love where I’m at but don’t think I’ll stay here forever

In same boat. SAP is difficult to get out of once one gets in. 😓

Depends where you live. I’m very happy with my salary in SAP currently. I don’t think I could do any of those jobs without blowing my brain out

Sir - if you are “specializing in SAP software” you are out of luck (unless you are a developer or basis or database or OS consultant). You want to specialize in a domain and industry - e.g supply chain in life sciences. Then you can transfer those skills to industry as an expert in the domain. SM I worked with in the SAP space just left for industry as a VP of Global Trade.

Does anyone also feel like partners talk way too fast to take notes? I try my best but always miss things. I thought about recording audio notes but I don’t want to violate privacy.

I think capitalism is a cancer. I feel sad for the people most eager to be its servant. I feed in as much of my socialist values into my work as possible.

Find it interesting people are using the threat of quitting to get off jobs that are inconvenient for them. You understand those partners see that as a CLM.
