How to Start A Business Analyst CareerReplies (1)

I am a Business Analyst currently for a consulting company on contract for the US Navy in NH and I want to find a job in Manhattan this year.

My lease ends in August so that is my deadline. I have about 8 months experience currently.

I called one recruiter from Robert Half technology and he hardly gave me the time of day. I have applied to some positions on Craigslist and have had no luck.

Any advice/ideas to get the ball rolling?

I really want to become a business analyst, but I don’t have the experience.

I recently got my BA in Finance and will get my MBA next May.

Due to the economic slow down, I can’t get any jobs in the area, I can’t even find a place to work for FREE to get experience.

I was thinking about getting a SAS certification and MCAS certification.

Any advice on what I can do to beef up my resume so I can snag my dream job?

How To Become A Business Analyst With A Psychology Degree?

How To Become A Business Analyst With A Psychology Degree?

How to Start A Business Analyst CareerReplies (1)

I just graduated in December 2006 from the University of Kentucky. My degree is in Psychology, but I have a passion for financial analysis and business developement. I was involved with a wonderful small business throughout college in which I was able to manage all of the financial/customer/business data and use it to help grow the company (a lot.)

However, now that I am out of college and want to move into a sustainable career (i.e. support my family with pay and benefits,) I am finding it difficult to pursue my passion. My wife and I want to move to the Central Florida area (where we were engaged, honeymooned, etc.) I have applied for dozens of analyst jobs down there, but, as of yet, no bite. How does one “break into” this field?
