Career Changer 

I worked in IT as a Business System Analyst /Project Manager for over 10 years mostlty on a contract basis and a Applications developer prior to that.  When the IT bubble burst  I made a change to teaching science in middle school out of necessity  .  Now the education arena is faltering and I am not near retirement age.  I would like to find business analyst opportunities again.  What advice can you give me on highlighting my skills and experience that will make me competitive for BA positions?

Re: Career Changer 

You could not be in a better position.  You already have the skills, it's just a question of quantifying them.  I really like the teaching experience.  We spend a lot of time educating our stakeholders.  Sure you may need some analysis experience with respect to eliciting requirements, writing use cases and the like.  We can take care of that with a little training.  I would suggest you take a look at the IIBAs carrier assessment t guide and compare your own experience to that.  This will give you a starting point.

Re: Career Changer 

I am also IT student, You have 10 years experiance in IT as a Business system analyst and project manager. you working on contract basis it doesn't matter. I think, you can find  agains business analyst opportunity.  If you interesting in teaching then you also do this side by side as part time for daily 1-2 hours. I hope you, you get a job in better company.

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...

So you’ve found the perfect time and place to study and you’re ready to finally get some work done.
