Hi all,

I'm looking for any advice you may have on how I can break into Business Analysis. My background is not one that lends itself to the field- not practically, anyway- though I do believe my experience with applied analysis will help me progress. Anyway, I graduated with an English degree and began work in the hotel business a couple years ago. Communication and relationship building are definite strengths, but I have little to no knowledge on the technological side of the field. At this point, I'm just wondering what my best first step would be. I'm finding a lot of conflicting information regarding second degrees, certification programs, online courses, etc, and would much appreciate any tips. Thank you in advance.

Best,

Erin

Hi Erin,

BA is a liason between SME ( Subject matter Experts ) & the technical team.
Softskills are needed at one end
the other end also need technical information that you need to communicate to the technical team.

so both skills are important, as per your info you have one skill set & you need to develop another set that is technical skill.

let me know if you need any help Erin
