Question

I have 18 years of project management, sales, sales management experience in the automotive and playground recreational products industry and I recently decided that I want to become a Business Analyst.

My experience with problem solving complex issues, sales, project management experience and running a small business gives me a broad base of experience which appears to fit nicely with what this type of position requires.

I am however, lacking any formal training on the IT side, I am comfortable with computers and how they operate but I am struggling with how to best present myself to potential employers since I am weak on this side of things.
