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.

Hello my coach (sounds so nice). I am been IT for about 15 years and need top get out as soon as yesterday.

I have reached the ceiling now – but I would like to be a team leader or a manager but to do something challenging.

So I decided that I would like to do a Business Analyst job – something that is different and beside it is lacking here in my department.

Can you tell more about BA`s job description, please? Thank you so much. Have a good day,

Which Comes First CBAP Certification Or Business Analyst Training?

You want to learn or master all the core business analysis skills, and get a lot of hands-on experience before you start working on your business analyst certification for the following reasons:

  1. Hands-On Experience Is Now Required For Certification: Nowadays, more certification providers are requiring lots of hands on experience (3, 4 or more years). It is now becoming accepted that you there is not much value in pursuing a certification except you’ve actually worked in an industry for a number of years and you have hands-on business analyst experience.
