I would like to seek some advice on what skills / qualifications (programming/database knowledge etc) should I have to be able to apply and get hired as an IT Business Analyst.
Take note that I already graduated college with a BS in Computer Science degree.
Please be specific in giving me advice,
Thank you in advance
What are the Qualifications for Becoming an IT Business Analyst
Information Technology (IT) Business Analysts play an important role by being responsible for their organizations technological development and direction i.e. they improve production, cost-effectiveness and workflow through their companyâ€™s business information and technical systems.
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?
Here are some of the classes that I took:
– Strategic Management & Business Policy
– Human Resources Management
– Consumer Behavior
– Financial Markets & Institutions
– Problems in Financial Management
– Analysis of the Financial Statement
– Introduction to Management Information Systems
