Question

I am working towards becoming a business analyst in state government and I would like to transfer my supervisor skills over into this field.

What should my first steps be to prepare for this transition?

I have a strong interest in entering the business analyst field as a career path, however, it is very difficult to access this field as a state government worker.

Many individuals have entered this field by knowing someone or networking.
