Iâ€™ve been a Business Analyst for the last 10 years, working with the Government, Tech startups & Fortune 500 companies. I couldnâ€™t have dreamt of a better career to satisfy my drive to make the world a better place, utilizing technology.
Here are 10 Reasons Why a BA Career Is Awesome!
- Drive massive Business impact, everyday
BAs are responsible to facilitate Business process improvement, and manage requirements for mission critical products. Some of the systems Iâ€™ve managed requirements for include eLearning software, digital health tech, government tax systems, and others. These systems had hundreds of thousands of users. When you build something with a team, and you see the smile it puts on peopleâ€™s faces, it really gives your hard work meaning.
- Earn a High Income
The average BA salary according to Ziprecruiter is $78,000 p/ year. By many standards, this is a good salary, but it gets better. Experienced BAs can make as high as $145K p/ year. Some of the alumni from the SkillHat BA course have hit well over the $100K p/ year mark, shortly after graduation. You can do it too.
- Anyone can become a BA
SkillHat alumni have transitioned into BA roles from varying backgrounds such as customer service, healthcare, marketing, tech support, etc. Absolutely anyone can become a BA with the right training, exposure & mentorship.
- Work Remote
Most BA tasks / jobs can be done remotely from the comfort of your home. This is a great advantage that allows you to apply for work anywhere on the globe. With less time spent commuting, you can be more productive, and youâ€™ll have the time to do more things you love – whether thatâ€™s spending time with family or enjoying hobbies.
This is part 1 of a two-part email series. In the next post, we will share more nuggets around why the BA career is awesome.
The SkillHat Business Analysis course is an excellent starting point for a BA career. The course provides practical training to get you BA skilled and job ready. However, when youâ€™re trying to make a career transition, you need more than training – you need a mentor & a coach.
