How to Get Hired
We asked SAP America Inc. for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.
What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?
SAP's people strategy is to create a culture that is able to deal with the complexity, speed, and volume of a digital workplace - a culture that inspires innovation, leads change, and creates ultimate employees satisfaction. Our "How We Run" behaviors were defined by our own employees. They are: Tell it like it is; Keep the promise; Stay curious; Build bridges, not silos; and Embrace differences.
What can prospective employees do to get your attention?
Be yourself! At SAP, we value everyone’s individuality and the diversity of our employees. Our employees are innovative and creative. Everyone has strengths and skills in different areas so show us how you too can stand out in your unique way. Do your research, learn about our company and Life at SAP, and then think to yourself, “What do I have to offer this employer?” and then look for effective ways to convey that to us!
Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?
We put huge effort into creating a workplace that attracts motivated, creative, and forward-thinking employees who will help us continue to innovate and grow. We look for consummate pros – as well as new generations of talent who will bring fresh ideas and perspectives to the table. We’re a company that’s dedicated to sustainability, fills you with a strong sense of purpose, and provides a fun and flexible job environment.
