How long will it take to find a job?

This is not an easy question to answer. The length of time it takes for your placement depends on several factors: current market conditions, your location preference, our resume/interview support, our marketing ability and your interviewing skills. We do our best to make factors under our control favorable – by helping you with creating a strong resume, additional domain training, interview prep sessions and access to our consultants portal with tons of resources and recordings of past sessions.

You will also need to do your part beyond the classes – by researching industry white papers, best practices and developments in the BA field. This will help you command knowledge at the interview and present yourself as a well-rounded candidate.

Do you provide 100% job placement guarantee?

We need to be clear on this. The answer is no. We will help you with your placement process by mentoring you and presenting your resume with our client and vendor companies. You will need to clear the interviews before you start a position. Hence, we do not claim any placement guarantee. We can help you achieve placement by preparing you and by marketing you.

You should be careful when trusting anyone who gives a categorical job placement guarantee.

What can I to to increase my chances of placement?

Any ability to relocate will greatly help. The more open you are, the better, at least for the first project. We can work with your location constraints but being able to relocate will be a great advantage as this is a flexibility many may not be able to afford.

You will need to be constantly engaged during the placement process and work with our trainers who will guide you. Some of the key suggestions to our consultants are:

  • Stay in touch with industry best practices in the BA realm
  • Follow the IIBA and take advantage of their free webinars
  • Follow BA-related blogs and twitters
  • Read white-papers and case studies
  • Gather domain knowledge outside your current expertise
  • Look through job descriptions from your local area and enhance your knowledge and know how of key job requirements
  • Seek a BA mentor through LinkedIn
  • Target your preparation with common interview questions

Do you work with candidates who are unable to relocate?

Your ability to relocate will greatly increase your chances and you should consider it at least for the first project. However, if you are unable to, we can still help you. You must expect the effort to take longer than if you were able to relocate.
