Look within your current employer first, they’ll be more likely to give you your first taste of experience while obtaining the cert at the same time.

Hey fishes,

I currently work on SAP ABAP, 2.5YoE
I am a bit skeptical about the future growth and scope.

Based on my research i see most ABAPers with 5-7 YoE being paid around 12-17 lpa. (This is based on data from people i talked to in similar roles).

I'm a bit confused whether ABAP would be a good career option or should i try switching to Java Spring or Big data.

What are your views about ABAP opportunities compared to other tech stacks.

Anyone else who feels that they want to step into the more analytical/executive/operational/financial side of business?

I feel that as a corporate lawyer, you’re mostly doing the necessary details to carry out someone else’s decisions (= EG the boring part of business). The most "strategic" advice you give is perhaps advising on a choice between transaction models.

Would only a law degree and big law transactional experience be sufficient to go into more traditional business roles?
