Do we really need much relevent experience before entering SAP field?

Hi, guys. Is everyone working in SAP field? You know it's the famous information management software. It includes many modules, such as FI/CO, CRM, SCM, PP, MM, and so on. Two years ago I heard about it and was immediately attracted. So I spent much much much money and time in studying FI/CO module. After that, I took the global consultant examination. Fortunately I got the SAP consultant certificate awarded by SAP German headquarters. I was so excited! I expected to work in this industry. But... But I was disappointed. I sent lots of resume and got several interviews. They all refused my application because of my lack of relevant experience. Today I want to try again. Although the economic situation is too bad, I still expect to get a opportunity to work as an FI/CO consultant, internel or external. Do you think it's possible? Would you like to tell me how did you find your first job about SAP? Thanks a lot!!!

Read the article on "March Layoffs at SAP -- Will it Impact SRM?" , I know SAP and if they are the same with other competing software, first you have to be in an entry level and start in a company using SAP, start being an internal user instead of a consultant. once you have earned like a year or two experience, then you can apply as a consultant

Thank you for your advice, my friend. I know there's a long road to get my expectative position. But I have no other choice, I must go on in this way. Just because I love this field and I believe I'm suitable for it.
