Hello all. I am wondering how hard it will be to move from being in QA to being a BA. I am currently between contracts so there isn't an opportunity to do this within a company.
I have done a lot of analysis and at one time was a systems analyst but for the past 10 years all my job titles have been Senior Test Analyst and Test Manager.
My fear is that a recruiter will take one look at my resume and I will be dismissed for anything else but Testing roles.
How can I redo my resume to show my BA skills and downplay the testing roles? I can't change my job titles although I have seen people do this a lot.
I thought about doing a functional resume but heard that they are frowned upon.
I have also complete a course in business analysis.
There seems to be a great need for BA where I am but the ads always list experienced.
Any tips and advice would be greatly appreciated.
