ANSWER

Most analysis managers and recruiters who are serious about hiring quality business analysts or systems analysts want to know that you are driven and interested in constantly increasing your knowledge and skills.

You want to be able to demonstrate to them that, outside of the employer required activities, you take the initiative to continue learning.

Here are some things that you can do (before the interview) and which will help you give a good and truthful answer:

  • participate in networking groups for business/systems analysts (ex: a local IIBA chapter),
  • join and become and active member of an on-line community of business analysts,
  • build your brand: write articles, create blog entriesdiscuss issues related to business analysis topics - this will showcase your skills and knowledge,
  • mentor junior analysts and other team members,
  • read books for business analysts (see: Modern Analyst Bookstore),
  • consider taking a course to refresh and complement your business systems analysis skills (see:  List of Training Courses).

Do your homework prior to the business analysis interview!

Having an idea of the type of questions you might be asked during a business analyst interview will not only give you confidence but it will also help you to formulate your thoughts and to be better prepared to answer the interview questions you might get during the interview for a business analyst position.  Of course, just memorizing a list of business analyst interview questions will not make you a great business analyst but it might just help you get that next job.
