Entering into an SAP consultant career can be difficult, but it can be done. There are two ways to enter into an SAP consultant career—work for a company that wants to implement SAP as its enterprise application system or get a job as junior SAP consultant. Once you have your foot in the door, it takes about two years to become comfortable with one particular module. Once you are comfortable with your chosen module you can earn more responsibilities in configuration.
After you move up into a senior consultant position, you can start to learn additional modules. The more modules you learn, the more valuable you are to your employer, especially if you have additional background that matches the modules you choose (accounting, finance, business, marketing, etc). Whether you choose one module or more than one module, once you have at last two to three years of experience, an SAP recruiter has more job options for you.
