Systems Analyst or Database Developer Classes, Which Is Relevant?

 
 

I am 1 class away from receiving my BSIS in database development. The school’s focus was on Oracle. My last two classes, which I am currently enrolled take it one step further to teach Building Internet Applications.

However, I don’t feel with a Bachelor’s in Business and soon a Bachelors in Information Systems, that I am knowledgeable and skilled enough to even get a job interview, which is proving to be very daunting.

I would love to be a systems analyst, but I don’t believe I can ever move to that position until I at least have worked as a developer for a while.
