Question

Hi,

I am a senior in college majoring in Management Information Systems.

I’ve recently interned with a company as a Business Analyst and decided that’s what I want to be when I grow up.

I am wondering if there is any certifications or training I should do before I graduate in May 2013.

If so- are there some that are more prestigious than others? Any to stay away from?

Obviously I want to gain more knowledge, have a better understanding and develop some useful skills before graduating and becoming a BA.

      Question

      Hi there,

      I am a science graduate who has recently completed an ISEB diploma in Business Analysis and am currently teaching myself PRINCE2.

      However the biggest stumbling block I, and I’m sure many others, are finding is that since I am at the start of my career (25), no one will give you that critical first job to let you get some experience.

      As such I was wondering if there is any advice anyone could offer, either on how to become a BA or which other jobs I could look at to help get some relevant experience in another role.
