What to do?

By m_siddiquie ·
Hi Guys,

I'm glad to see so many sincere replies for posted questions so I'm also putting my question for you guys. I'm new to tech republic...I have a bachelor's degree in Teleocom and Business and couple of years of work experience.

But because as a starter i took system support jobs and now when i have 2,3 years under my belt but based on my experience I'm still getting calls from recruiter for similar positions. I want to do something more meaningful like Business or System Analyst how should I go about that route? any suggestions? As well what should do i in terms of upgrading my education to prepare myself for that role?

Highlight your experience, especially and aspects related to your target

by Matthew Yurksaitis In reply to What to do?

Based on your post my recommendation would be to highlight your experience & achievements on your resume especially aspects, skills etc which are also common to your target Position. If you have had the opportunity to perform some of the functions for your desired position these are the ones to highlight and discuss. With 2-3 years under your belt you may still be considered entry level - so look for Business or Systems analyst postings for entry level positions.

Foot in the door

by m_siddiquie In reply to Highlight your experience ...

thanks Matthew, my total experience is close to 6 years but in pure IT its 3 years or so. Any recommendation on courses or upgrade because I'm feeling rusty to be away from education for that long considering the area I want to get into.

Rework your cv

by Tony Hopkinson In reply to What to do?

Orient it towards business goals. Try and leave the how you achieved it for later and concentrate on the
why and what business goal it achieved. If you want to go down the BA route, any business education will be useful. One of the key things about being a BA is domain knowledge, so maybe look for analyst jobs with firms that do software for system support. Asset tracking, fault recording etc.
