No Expertise for a Business Analyst Job

I got recruited by a company to do 3 work rotations as part of a training program. Our first one is where our permanent job is supposed to be.

The bloody geniuses have put me in the role of a BUSINESS ANALYST…

I have virtually NO expertise in SOFTWARE development at all and I am supposed to liase between developers and customers ?? WHAT THE HECK AM I GOING TO DO ?

Why would they put me there ? They could have put me anywhere else.

What should I do I feel like I am going get fired because there is no way I have the expertise to do that job… it just is not feasible..

    Tell your direct supervisor about the error. If he does not listen then go up the chain of command. If no one helps to resolve the issue then find another job with another company. It is better to leave than to fail at a job that you are hired for.

    Take a cool breath dear…

    They probably know u r not knowing all this… just wait for a few days… they will be planning your training sessions, as Business Analyst is not a small or a meaning less or labor kind of job…

    Their (companies) bread depends on Business Analysts.. What you have to do is… keep their confidence on yourself and give the best you can…

    Whatever they teach you during the training session.. just make it in your mind, in your work and give them the best of yours…

    And never get out of your mind unless u do not like the job they want u to do…

    If it is like this with your then you should tell them about it.. and leave the job yourself..

    Else take the responsibility and make a space out of the crowd for yourself.. 🙂

    Best of LUCK

    They are moving you around different areas in what you yourself call a training program. They wont expect you to know anything about the job. That’s what you’re there for. Just take it all in. If you want to impress them though, find out what a business analysis does…however, this title usually means different things to different companies. It tends to be a look after the running of the day to day business kind of job.
