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.

There are big differences between data exploration versus data presentation. And you need to be aware of these differences as you're creating data stories and data presentations. Let’s start by defining our terms: Data exploration means the deep-dive analysis of data in search of new insights.

Is Agile a reason to avoid documentation? I bet this question shows up again and again while working with product requirements. On one side, we have got long specifications, complicated diagrams, mystical technical design, too many prototypes and pretty obvious for engineers user guides (do we really need so much?). On the other side, can we actual...
