First is business journalist. It's a good opportunity to analyse and be informed with all the economic changes that take place in business or in a particular field of interest. With the advent of web 2.0, writing articles was never easier.

Hi Luka,

You bring up a great point on which I must comment!

If cash flow is not the reason for the second job then try to get involved in a series of endeavors which will build your brand.  That's right, build your personal brand!  You need to figure out what would be the ideal brand for you - write a mission statement or a vision of the future and then work on activities which put you closer to the desired brand.  As you mentioned, the web is a great way to help you get that started.

Since I don't know your ultimate vision of where you want to be professionally, I'm going to assume that you want to be a world-class business analyst.

Here some ideas of what you could do part-time outside the 9am to 6pm timeframe:

  • Blog: write your thoughts down and allow others to comment on your viewpoints and vision of the BA profession.  Of course - I highly encourage that you blog at ModernAnalyst.com!
  • Read a new book related to business analysis and post a review of the book.
  • Write articles relevant to business analysts on new ways of doing things even if it's a "what-if".
  • Offer to coach and mentor other business analysts in order to polish your teaching skills and to solidify your own personal knowledge.
  • Sign-up to speak at conferences and other BA events.
  • Write an ebook on a topic which is not yet well served by the existing resources.
  • Get certified - study and prepare for the CBAP certification.

Of course - if want to do any of these in conjunction with ModernAnalyst.com we would be happy to work with you -  we are always looking for experienced practitioners to help us in the role of Project Members at ModernAnalyst.com.

Sincerely,

- Adrian

Re: Part time job for a BA 
1) Consider Quality Assurance. If you are a good BA, you can certainly judge other BA's work. I'm currently running a Requirements Inspection Programme for one of our projects. 2) Look for BA specialties, that are not always clearly distinguishable from other roles, say PM. Examples: Estimation, evolutionary project development Cheers! Rolf
