You’ve probably heard me go on an on about the the skills you REALLY need to start your DREAM BA Career.
Communication – both written and verbal is one of the key ones.
There are quite a few other skills which we all have and use everyday like…
Organizational skills and critical thinking…
Being organized is a must for you as the BA, being the facilitator responsible for steering the business in the right direction.
Also making sure you’re able to keep to deadlines and hold others accountable especially if you’re assigned the role of a scrum master on an Agile project.
Empathy is also another one which some people overlook – and it doesn’t mean rolling over and accepting everything that gets thrown at you…
You’ll need to draw a fine line between what’s important that supports the business goals and objectives vs. what’s simply a nice-to-have feature, that can be thrown in if time and budget permits.
Critical thinking can’t be overrated, about 80% of your job as a business analyst involves thinking through ideas and concepts.
The most important thing is knowing how to leverage these skills and drawing from examples in your current or previous role to craft a market ready BA resume that will help you land your dream BA job even faster.
As always, cheers to your BA Career Success!
