Tania Griffin
Support Engineer

"On my first day of joining Premium Hub - CoE Ireland I must admit I was feeling nervous as I did not know what to expect of the job role and more so what was expected of me. When I realized, I was starting on the Graduate program with all other new hires I felt so relieved. I was given the opportunity to start from scratch and was not thrown in at the deep end like one of the horror scenarios we tend to dream up in our minds. Taking part of the graduate program was a brilliant opportunity to ease into the workplace. Given the time and resources to really learn all the basics whether it be SAP acronyms, getting used to the systems, presentation skills, there was no silly questions. Everything was key to learning and preparing for your future team and working with customers. I highly recommend any new hires to take advantage of this time on the graduate program to really soak up all the knowledge and opportunities presented. This is key to your development. Since leaving the Early Talent program I have moved into the SuccessFactors team in which I am still learning every day. The number one thing that always stands out about working in Premium Hub - CoE Ireland even SAP overall for me and which I love is the culture and environment. It is filled with amazing people who are always extremely friendly and helpful. You will always be supported along your journey. We all learn from each other no matter what level you are at. Premium Hub - CoE Ireland has such a wide range of opportunities and roles in which you can take on during your career. Even in the beginning you might not be entirely sure what role or path is for you, but you can figure that out along the way there is endless trainings and learning opportunities to avail of." 

Shubham Wadzirkar
Support Associate

"The way SAP has made an impact on the world using innovative technologies and has successfully established a Fortune 500 client base was one of major reasons why I applied at SAP. This is a company that offers you a diverse professional experience. As a recent graduate, I believe SAP did a fantastic job of integrating graduates into their work culture through the Premium Hub - CoE Ireland Bootcamp. From day one of the Premium Hub - CoE Ireland Bootcamp, I’ve felt like a part of something bigger. Every week had been meticulously planned with a perfect balance of theory and hands-on training. The thing which I liked the most was the progressive overload of the tasks that were assigned during the program. It was instrumental in easily adapting to SAP’s huge ecosystem and honed time management skills. In all honesty, the bootcamp has not been without its challenges but has provided a brilliant opportunity to explore multiple areas within the Premium Hub - CoE. It is the people that I’ve got to know through this program, both mentors and colleagues, that have made it such a valuable experience and pushed me to succeed."
