Where to get good experience to be a foundation to be a Business Analyst? 

 Hey there. :)

Well, I am a recent graduate of Bachelor of Science in Information Technology and may I ask if my course would give "points" to be a Business Analyst and if so, may I know what would be the best training ground to start? I've read an article that states that being a CONSULTANT would be good for a Junior BA, well a Technical BA. By that, what does it mean to be as a consultant? Is it relevant to IT Help Desk?

One more thing, I would like to work as a customer service representative (to sustain my desire to pursue my studies in BA field), would it help me to improve the skills for BA?

I know it's a lot of questions but I appreciate if every question is answered. :)

 

Thank you very much. :)

You are a IT graduate, but you want to be a customer service representative, it really shame to me. Simple graduation was enough for you. Also I want to mention here that consultant job is a higher management position and only expert can do consultancy.

 Working as a CSR will not provide you with the experience or skill sets that you need as a BA. You need to learn the skills, methodologies, techiques of requirement gthering in details along with some case studies that will provide u with real time exposure...

To get started as a BA you need to prepare ypurself step wise. Training shall be taken and you should be careful with what you are getting into.

I will give you an example of our course BA bootcamp that prepares freshers for the BA job.

1. 1st step is to learn the basics of Business analysis. We do that with lots of case studies that help students understand what they will get hen they start working. Lot of the courses that you get in the market teach theortical concepts and do not cover the practical aspects. Our trainers take actual projects and teach students how to write various requirements in the class for those projects. Our clients have called us back lot of times to tell us that our students know a lot more than other BA's working in their company.

2. 2nd step is to prepare for mock intervies. You have to start speaking the language of a BA and mock intervies prepare you for that,Our students feel that almost 99% of the questions were covered as part of the mock interview sessions. You should be prepared to that level before going for interviews

3. 3rd step is to make sure that yuour resume is right for BA market. We screen the resume of our students and make sure that it is suitable as per the latest trend in the market.

If you follow these steps, you will definitely secure a job as a BA. Let me know if you have any other question

 

Thanks

I’ve heard “The End is Near!” for Business Analysts for almost 20 years.  Waterfall project management, with its need for formal requirements, is dead…a dinosaur…so 1990’s.  To be honest, that’s mostly true.  With the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 there was no need for a 2-inch-...
