In your first rotation, you’ll work in a technical role, which will include coding. This will help you build the foundations of technical experience that correlate with future success at SAP.
The STAR program has been a great opportunity and has given me the chance to grow my technical skills. During my first rotation, I was able to dabble in several different technologies within SAP, including some web development, and develop other professional skills by working on a team. SAP has a great work environment; everyone is kind and willing to help you learn!
For your second rotation, you get to decide which team you want to join. The choices are endless; you can choose any team in SAP, whether they are technical or not. Past students have joined teams in development, sales, and even finance.
In my second rotation, I have decided to keep with the technical skills and joined a technical team. I feel what I have learned exceeds a standard technical experience. I have grown my ability to plan a team, prepare and present material for customers, alongside getting to continue leaning necessary technical skills to advance my career. By joining the STAR program, I have accelerated my learning and career opportunities years beyond what I normally would have achieved.
STAR interns can also apply for an international rotation abroad. This rotation would occur when you are on break from your studies. Should you be selected, you can choose any team in any of the 78 countries we operate around the globe.
My abroad experience was the highlight of my time in the SAP STAR program. As an avid traveler, I had always wanted a work abroad experience that allowed me to live some place new and experience a different culture. I was able to fly to Berlin, Germany and work out of the SAP Berlin office in the summer of 2019. I did functional business analysis of SAP Sales data and learned so much about the business side of SAP. I was able to network with colleagues from all over the world and learn the working culture of a European city. It was such a rewarding experience, one that took me out of my comfort zone and allowed me to see 8 countries in one summer!

Leading up to graduation, you can decide whether or not you want to stay with SAP for a full-time job. The majority of our students decide to stay with SAP. If you decide the same, we help you find and apply to full-time work at SAP with one-on-one consultations and coaching.
I had the opportunity to be a member of four different teams, learn about their roles within SAP, and even work aboard all because of the SAP STAR program. The experiences helped me narrow down what type of work I enjoyed doing and it helped me land a full-time position in one of my previous departments! I can definitely say that the program truly invests in its students and I wouldn’t be where I am today without it.
