Q. I am male, about 35 years old, and have been working in a finance position for six years doing accounts payable.
My company is moving to Luxembourg and my friend promised me a job as an SAP data maintenance staff in Luxembourg. It is why I am going to do an SAP course in Singapore.
I have to pay all the tuition fees. Do you think it is worthwhile to pursue the course and work in SAP data maintenance? Will I get a high salary or is it the same level as an account payable job?
Career advice from Stella Thevarakam, regional HR director of management and technology consulting firm ISS Consulting (M):
Definitely SAP Certification carries a lot of weight if you want to pursue a career in SAP.
The money you spend to get certified will soon pay back with your new SAP career.
The prospects are definitely better and the pay is better.
