I have learnt a lot of new skills such as professional writing, email and reporting skills....excel, forecasting, data analysis/data presentation skills .... and sales skills such as negotiation/influencing etc. I have also greatly developed my organizational, communication and team working skills.
Yes, definitely given a good amount of responsibility. It was drip fed, so I never felt overwhelmed and could always speak to someone if I wanted more or less work. The responsibility meant I felt like a real part of the business and I could see my work actually being used to make business decisions.
Plenty - we were given a whole month of training, and assigned a buddy so there was always someone to speak to and ask questions after training. The support was amazing and there is a very friendly work environment here.
Friendly, professional, supportive.
Greatly enjoyed my time with SAP and very grateful for the opportunity
Be yourself ! Don't try and pretend to be someone you "think" SAP would want. Good character and professionality goes a long way.
