What participants say about their experience

Gledis Lushaj
Support Engineer 

To kick off my career as a full time employee at SAP, I attended the SAP Career Starters Program and the Premium Hub - CoE Boot Camp. Both programs are designed for early talents, with a package of workshops that are of social, business or technical nature. The Premium Hub - CoE Boot Camp offers trainings that are specific for Premium Hub - CoE and give you more insights of what the daily work at Premium Hub - CoE consists of. Even though I had already been working as a working student for SAP, the program delivered a lot of value in my professional and personal development. I must mention that I started in April 2020 where almost the whole world was experiencing the lockdown phase, so I was maybe a bit more nervous than average on how the virtual experience would be. Nevertheless, the Program did exceed my expectation. Even though everything was done virtually, I was able to learn so much and do hands-on practice. We were in contact with experts and could directly ask questions in case we wanted more information on a specific topic. The Boot Camp was not only about technical skills, but also teaching us how we can succeed in working with customers. Even now after 2 years of experience on working with customers at Premium Hub - CoE Analytics, I still go back to what I learned in the Career Starters Program and the Premium Hub - CoE Boot Camp.

Working with customers is not only about solving their problems, but also being a good listener, communicating a lot, being able to handle pressure and sometimes it get stressful yes, but the feeling of reward after you have made a customer happy, is totally worth it. I say this from experience, and I can confidently add, that the early talent program that SAP offers, does help you a lot in all these pillars. ​

SAP offers a very light and fun atmosphere to be around, cultural diversity and great colleagues that you can learn so much from - having these in mind I recall my experience at the Career Starters Program and the Premium Hub - CoE Boot Camp as one of the best I have had!

Bootcamp sets you off with great general overview on parts of Premium Hub - CoE from where your personnel journey can truly begin. In 15 weeks, you learn about SAP products, technologies, challenging processes, and best-practices from the most talented trainers. Soft-skill development and networking is in focus for the first weeks, so you don't just take the rest of training with fellow colleagues, but with friends. It makes a family atmosphere where you don't feel the pressure of asking questions multiple times and shouldn’t be shy.​ For me, the most important aspect during the program was the openness of fellow peers and trainers which is also a great characteristic of SAP. We were asked to give feedback week-by-week, and many great ideas were implemented from that. ​Premium Hub - CoE bootcamp has been the best training I have ever taken and I cannot wait to take my next steps!

Taylan Mueslueman

My start within the Premium Hub - CoE for Customer and Vendor Management exceeded my expectations greatly. Despite starting amid a global pandemic, the well-refined Early Talent Program has allowed me to have a very successful start by improving my understanding of the SAP technologies and the company culture. In addition, I had the chance to get to know a big group of new hires and various experts from other departments, who have gradually become my internal network. The training programs provided me with a great technical knowledge basis to expand upon and the upfront time investment by SAP shows that the individual development of the employees is valued. My buddy, mentor and team manager have all been very supportive along the way and I am looking forward to contributing to our team’s and customers’ success.

Norbert Radakovits

As SAP is my very first multinational workplace, the Career Starter Program was a salvation for me. At first the length of it and the intensity was a bit frightening, but when it has started, everything has changed. It was really great that we learnt not only about the basics of SAP but the business culture. And also beside the incredibly lot of thing what they taught to us, we the students again started to behave like we were in school. We built networks but sometimes even more than networks. I think we will never forget those who was our first comrades in this experience. ​And after we got through the business related topics we started to get an overview about SAP’s overwhelming world. I won’t lie it was hard sometimes. But at that point we already had some colleagues who were always ready to help us. And the presenters tried their best to answer as many of our questions as they could even if the time was short. So we were never alone. I just can hope that this atmosphere will be the same during the following times because during this program we of course learnt a lot but still for me the best part was the environment.

Valentin Bon

Premium Hub - CoE’s Early Talent Program was a very rewarding onboarding experience. ​Despite challenging circumstances, the program teams managed to bring together newcomers from all over Europe. ​Starting in small groups, we got to know each other, then we worked together on different scenarios and role plays. ​This allowed us to exercise and put into practice the skills that will be useful in our daily lives: such as design thinking or project methodology. ​ ​The second part of the program allowed us to dive into the heart of SAP, its products, and its culture. ​At the end of these intense weeks, we were able to better identify the current and future challenges that we will face during our career at SAP. ​The different trainers gave us the keys to find our way and make our team and our customers successful!
