Do I need business analyst training?
The answer is different for everyone, but before you invest potentially thousands of dollars in costly training programs, I’ll help you assess what you already know with an overview of the following:
- Business analysis fundamentals;
- Primary software development methodologies you’ll face as a new BA; and
- Tools, technologies, and techniques BAs use day-to-day.
I suggest authoritative resources (books and online media) to help you fill any knowledge gaps before investing in costly business analyst training courses.
How do I qualify for an entry-level business analyst position?
You qualify yourself to be a business analyst by accumulating BA experiences. I’ll help you find opportunities in your current situation or identify the relevant experiences you’ve already had.
I’ll also help you find entry-level positions by:
- Networking with technology professionals;

How do I create a business analyst resume?
Many candidates use their resume as a catalog of their professional experiences. This is a non-starter if you are new to the profession without much experience. I’ll help you update your resume to leverage what I’ve learned from new business analysts who recently found their first BA jobs.
I’ll help you refocus your resume to highlight the fundamentals of business analysis and the business analyst experiences you’ve accumulated.
