HI all,
I am Shree. I have completed Masters in Management in London, UK and currently doing MBA HR in Chennai (though my Bachelors degree is not related to administration). I have three years experience as Customer Service Assistant and really new to HR jobs. I am planning to do SAP. My confusion is whether to choose SAP-HR or SAP-CRM. As I have experience only with customer service I have an option of SAP-CRM. I am looking to enter to HR roles in my career. I would be grateful if anyone can kindly help me choosing the right option for my career .
