Where to start 

Hi, Everybody, I am new here. I am a postgraduate student right now and about to graduate. I am majoring in business information management. But My undergraduate major is International business. I don't know much about programming but I do hope to be a BA. My question is what kind of jobs I should go for. I did some research on job market, it seems that project manager or business/system analyst is tailored to what I studied but I don't think I can get that kind of jobs. What position should I look for?

Re: Where to start 

Here are some positions you could consider: 

  • Junior BA 
  • Associate Consultant
  • Entry Level Project Manager

Here are a couple more suggestions:

  • Consider taking a foundational course in Business Analysis offered by one a specialized training vendor,
  • If your university has a career center - check out what type of internship opportunities exist for the summer,
  • Make sure you interview with as many employers that come on campus as they are the ones more open to hire folks right out of college.

Re: Where to start 

I have reviewed some of the courses listings offered as well as searched on "foundation".   Exactly which courses are " foundational course in Business Analysis"?

I am especially interested in online courses/video's because of my work schedule.
