Recent BA Graduate 


I recently graduated with my BAS in IT (stream of business system analysis and design).
During college I was involved with many system analysis and design courses and projects.The projects mostly exposed us with requirements gathering, elicitations, system design, and business process management. As for the programming, I took two courses on Java and one on SQL and HTML.The program was mostly business oriented.
My question is how I should start building a career towards BA, considering the fact that I do not have professional experience.

IRe: Recent BA Graduate 

It sounds like your bachelors degree gave you a great foundation in business/systems analysis.  Your next step will be to land a position as a junior business analyst.  Try to find a recruiter in your local area who specializes in placing Business Analysts.

Also - consider the option of volunteering your time as a BA for a non-profit organization in order to gain experience.  Don't forget to join your local IIBA chapter and network with other business analysts.

As business analysts, we identify and define the solutions that will maximize the value delivered by an organization to its stakeholders.
