Tell them they don't look great either, and that they should spend less worrying about how their money is doing and leave it to you.

I was telling our Solution Arch, that I don't think I'm needed for the next phase, also because my bill rate might be too high for this phase. He said to me no I think we need you, you're the pretty face for the client. And I said what do you mean by that? He's like 'you're the one they trust'. I didn't think much at the time, but now I'm swirling on it.

I have been searching for job from quite a long time and all I have seeing HR/Panels asking for
1. Number of implementation projects done.
2. Work experience on S4 Hana.

And if I don't have atleast any one of these, I will not be considered.

Is it really that important ?

Being joined as a fresher - Is it really something that I can decide whether to be in support or implementation project ?

Is upgrading of ECC to S4 Hana in my hands ? And the difference is really that vast ?
