My dream job is business analyst. I love the fact that a business analyst acts as a liaison between the IT people who devise the solutions and the management who present the issue that needs to be addressed. This allows the business analysts to be part of both the problem and the solution. Being a business analyst will also allow me to develop soft skills such as communication and teamwork skills that are highly desirable in many industries. The importance of soft skills such as communication can be judged by the fact that they are almost an essential requirement for the top management positions. After all, a leader has the job to unite his followers behind a certain vision.
I also want to be a business analyst because it will provide me with an access to job opportunities in almost every industry. It is hard to think of an industry that has not been touched by the advancements in IT, and the role of IT will continue to grow over time. Similarly, I am also excited by the fact that the business analysts often taken international assignments. I love travelling and learning about other cultures, thus, this will be a desirable perk of the job. I will get to travel while also getting paid at the same time.
While I am excited about the future potential of IT, I am also intrigued by the way different businesses are run. Being a business analyst will help me better understand the business models and operations of different companies. The knowledge and insights gained as a business analyst may also allow me to make a transition to other careers such as management consulting.
I look forward to my career as a business analyst. I know the work hours will be grueling but I will at least enjoy what I am doing and I will learn a lot in the process.
