Reports from 2010 indicated that SAP Consultants held almost 10 percent of the world’s IT jobs, and this figure is only expected to rise. As the mobility of workers grows, so will the need to protect the safety and accuracy of organizations’ SAP programs. Therefore, it’s unlikely that SAP Consultant jobs will wane any time in the foreseeable future.
The salaries of SAP Consultants range widely depending upon expertise and credentials. Some SAP Consultants may start out making in the mid-$50Ks annually. However, those working for government entities on highly secure projects have been known to make upwards of $150K or more each year. A good baseline expectation in terms of income for SAP Consultants is around $70K plus benefits.
A SAP Consultant is usually expected to hold a bachelor’s degree in some kind of technological field or mathematics. In order to use the title of SAP Consultant, an individual should have on-the-job experience with SAP systems. Many consulting firms and corporations have been known to give preference to SAP Consultants with human resources, management, client services, IT, project management and similar backgrounds.
SAP certification courses are available and can increase your credentials. They include SAP Associate and SAP Professional certifications. In addition, some SAP Consultants have added niche certifications to their core SAP credentials, including courses in SAP Composition Environment, SAP NetWeaver Developer Sudio, SAP Project Systems and SAP Service Management.
