Reg the ECBA (IIBA Certified) 

Hi 

I am Harish and i pursued BA knowledge through my PGDip. from NZ and currently working as a QA-Consultant in a startup in India.

My query is that even after pursuing my PG, there were no appropriate opportunities to me for a BA position both in NZ and India since i wasn't having the experience as they seek. only if there's an opportunity, recruiters or anyone knows, what a candidate can do. And that's why i am planning to take up the course of ECBA provided by IIBA.

Now my query is that, i wanna know whether there will be any job opportunities post the certification as concerned with India? and How do i pave a way to that, in order to get a job?.

It'd be of a great help if anyone can leave a piece of advise here.. Thanks in Advance.!

Hi Harish,

Hard question to answer. I live in Australia not NZ or India but I don't think that certification has much value. It might help you get a junior BA position possibly.

 

Is there no chance for you to change position where you work now? Find out who is hiring BAs and invite them for a coffee or something. Ask their advice on what you should do to move into a BA position. 

 

Its a start anyway.

Re: Reg the ECBA (IIBA Certified) 

Thanks to spare your time on this Kimbo and its really appreciated. 

And thanks for the feedback on ECBA. Yeah, that's what am also thinking about, and moreover ECBA was started a year ago(If am not wrong) and only 700 certified ECBA's are there in India it seems.

Concerned with where i work now, they told me that they might offer me BA at the time of joining in this company. Now, its been close to a year and there's no similar noise from the management, and moreover i don't know how to approach the management or Boss regarding this. 

It'd be helpful if you can tell me how do i approach regarding this to my boss, Kimbo?

Perhaps talk to your company's BAs and ask their advice. Ask the BA team leader if there is one. If all else fails perhaps you need to move on Harish. Sorry I can't be more helpful.

Traceability is one of the lesser understood aspects of business analysis. It is indeed quite hard to maintain good traceability unless automated. This is why BABoK® warns us being theoretical about traceability. In this article, I would like to explain traceability concepts with help of an example. BABoK® definition of traceability: ...

The business analyst career path is best. Because, “There are career tracks that zigzag back and forth between IT and business. Someone might start as a business analyst, and the...
