why are you leaving (or did you leave) your current position?

I was reading through one of my favorite books, “65 Interview Questions,” and I read the following question. “Why are you leaving (or did you leave) this position?”  because it reminds me about one of the most important principles of getting the very highest rates, and it underscores the importance of working in the highest-demanded areas possible, and it perfectly represents one of the best strategies you can employ when looking for and getting new jobs in SAP (and anywhere, really…)

Your most important, your strongest leverage in this business is scarcity. The very best answer is that you’re not 100% committed to leaving your current post. That you’re happy to stay put, but you’re always open to new and interesting opportunities if the right offer comes along. This is important because it means you are scarce – even if you receive an offer, you may decide that it’s best …

what’s your goal?

tokyo_tower Dear Reader:  With the publication of my first book on SAP in 2003, I realize that I’ve now been teaching people how to get jobs in SAP for a more than a decade.  If you didn’t know this already, one of the things I’m most proud of is that rather than simply offering my readers information, I’m offering you my advice. There’s a big difference between the two!

Of course information you can just google or find on SDN, but advice – this is something more precious and something you need to hear from another human being. Somebody who cares that you get it right, somebody who actually gives a damn.

So when I give you advice about which skills to pursue and how to pursue them… how to interview, how to manage recruiters, how negotiate the very best terms of employment, or how to approach breaking into your next …

ABAP sees highest rates ever

I was talking with a colleague, an ABAP programmer.  We were talking about the SAP consulting industry, and of course — hourly billing rates for SAP skills.  For many of us, our rates have been getting better in recent years, and we wonder – does this apply to all skill areas in SAP?  Will the rates continue to climb? You always hear negative news in our industry, and positive news is rare. But here’s a bit of positive news. Rates are getting higher.

One might expect that if any area would be lower, that the technical rates would be slightly lower, from global pressure, off-shoring, etc.  In fact he has found the opposite.  Rates for SAP ABAP programmers are higher than ever. In fact, they are the highest they’ve ever been.  What about terms, you ask? Are clients taking away ABAP travel expenses?

As an ABAP programmer, he’s receiving rate …

SAP Basis: 20,000 Worldwide Openings


India – 9,000

USA – 5,000

Europe – 6,000


These are the minimum number of SAP Basis Openings in each region. Why so many? This is such a hot SAP skill area, and such a rich area for employment opportunity, I wonder why more people aren’t moving into SAP Basis?

Technical training first? No.

A reader writes,

Jim, I have seen your “Catch 22” demo. You clearly mentioned that SAP HANA will be the right choice to break into SAP world as it doesn’t require much experience. Only thing I should be very fast in learning. I think I can do it. I need your guidance. I am really confused how I can be benefited by purchasing “SAP MM Inventory Management Training tutorial”. Please guide me. Thanks, Baljeet


From the language you’re using here, I feel like you need more general information about how to get a job in SAP. It’s a process, and I lay this out for you in Breaking Into SAP 3.0. (BITSAP 3.0)

You want to rush right into technical training, but you don’t understand the relationship between SAP, MM, and HANA — if you did, then you would understand how MM-IM training could fit into a training program …
