Re: Entry level analyst 

Hi Ray,

Welcome to the Modern Analyst community for business/systems analysts!

The role of the business analyst is still maturing so what a BA does varies from organization to organization.  Here is a high level summary of the Business Analysis Profession.

Also - this page has a good list of some key flavors/roles of business analysis.

We also have a comprehensive list of knowlege-based business analyst interview questions.

Given that you are new to the profession and don't much experience, I would recommend taking an introductory business analysis course which will give you a good idea of what you need to get started.

Best of luck to you in your upcoming interview and your future career.

Sincerely,

Adrian

Re: Entry level analyst 

Hi Adrian,

Thank you very much for your reply. The information you sent was really useful. Do you know any organisations where i can do voluntary work to get experience of Business Analyst. As i stay in nottingham do you know any company that offer introductory course for business analyst. As i am really looking forward to improve my skills. What would you suggests is classroom based tutorial is that better than attending E learning course. The organisation  i work is customer focussed. It requires lot of reporting i want to understand the basics which iam struggling to find.  i would really appreciate if you could help me with the queries i raised. Thanks once again for your time.
