Of all the companies that I appliedto, I was most impressed with SAP’s recruitment process. From the initial CV application, through to the telephone interview, assessment centre and final interview, I felt that I was treated as a real individual and not just a name on a piece of paper.
“The thing that I enjoy most about my role is presenting, both internally and to customers. I present SAP’s strategy and product portfolio to new starters (15-30 people) each month”
At SAP there is definitely an accreditation process to gaining responsibility. Once I had proven my skills, I was given a lot of responsibility – including presenting to customers, training new starters and even helping to interview candidates for full time roles.
Succeeding in presales comes downto two things: excellent communication and in-depth knowledge. Applying for a presales placement, therefore, you should do your best to convey that you are a confident presenter and can absorb a lot of information!
The thing that I enjoy most about my role is presenting, both internally and to customers. I present SAP’s strategy and product portfolio to new starters (15-30 people) each month, which is great as it gives me a chance to sharpen my skills and also increases my visibility inside SAP!
Outside of work, I play football withother SAP employees, Mondays and Wednesdays. The intern community is strong (over 30 of us) so organise a lot of nights out, various activities and even holidays. SAP also runs a fully-funded 3-day ‘SAP World Cup’ tournament out in Germany!
