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.
What about experience … all BA positions require minimum 5 yrs experience?
How to build that if you graduated last year.
Understanding What Employers Really Want Is Key To Overcoming Lack Of BA Experience!
The job description states that a minimum of 5 years’ experience is required to apply.
What is the employer really looking for when they state this in their ad?
What this really means is that the employer is not wanting to waste their time with applicants who only display a desire or potential alone – who will require months and years of a training investment.
