A Guide To Landing Business Analyst Jobs

Business analysts are the glue that holds the company together, from project to project.

As businesses work towards improving their strategies, planning and data models, they become increasingly aware of the necessity of business analysts. They need someone to resolve issues in the planning process and ensure that these decisions are implemented correctly.

Business analysts help reduce failure rates of projects by ensuring that clients needs are met without compromising the company’s resources. They are the ultimate support system, and with more companies recognizing this, jobs for business analysts are on the upswing.

If you’re interested in business analyst jobs, read on to find out what it takes to get one.

What Does a Business Analyst Do?

To be a successful business analyst, you shouldn’t think of it as a 9-5 job.

You need to be able to think creatively to manage conflicts and accomplish team goals. This thinking can’t be on-and-of either; you need to be able to constantly assimilate and analyze information to come up with more efficient solutions, every time.

As a business analyst, your basic job function is to reduce costs and increase benefits, across all levels in the production process.

You’ll need to identify the needs of the businesses, resolve them with cost-effective solutions, and chart out fields of improvement. Any reworking of business models, client relationships, workflows or technological interventions are also part of the business analyst job description.

What Skills And Qualifications Do You Need?

With how multi-faceted business analyst jobs are, it is only natural that aspirants are expected to be adequately qualified.

Education And Experience

Typically, aspirants for business analyst careers possess a minimum of a bachelor’s degree in business administration, finance, computer science or other related fields. Further educational qualifications are usually not asked for, but might become necessary for future advancement.

While there are a number of additional certifications available for aspiring analysts, they do not make an impact on hiring managers unless they are paired with relevant experience.

Needless to say, business analysts are expected to have professional experience of anything between 3-5 years.

Other Skills

Apart from the requisite educational background, potential candidates are required to be proficient in Microsoft Office. Familiarity with data analysis applications and tools such as ETL (extract, transform and load) and Oracle technologies is also a frequently listed qualification.

Technical skills aside, business analyst jobs require candidates to have a variety of soft skills. Communication skills are crucial, because a majority of the work involves assessing the real needs of clients and co-ordinating projects.

Diplomacy, organization, analysis and detail-orientation are all necessary skills that a business analyst must possess to excel at their job. They must be able to identify and resolve issues tactfully. They also need to be able to deal with high-profile clients and stakeholders and be sensitive to their needs and requirements.

What’s In Store for Business Analysts?

Business analyst careers range across a variety of industries like insurance, software, banking, and even the government. The average salary is about $58,790 per annum, and this can go up to as much as $89,000 per year as you improve your skills and gain experience.

Just about any company can benefit from having a business analyst on board. So while financial and administrative businesses are currently the major employers, other industries and businesses will also follow suit.

The need for critical thinkers to make important tactical decisions in a company is perennial. As a business analyst you’ll have the option of developing a number of easily transferable skills. You’ll also play a crucial role in the development of the organization you’re working with.

A business analyst job is therefore perfect for anyone with great communication and problem-solving skills who wants to use them to improve business processes.
