BA Trailblazer | BA Beginnings

The BA Beginnings Trailblazer is an opportunity for new business analysts to connect and to discuss tools, techniques, and topics that will help guide their new careers in business analysis. 

The ultimate objective of this BA Trailblazer series is to create a comfortable space in which new business analysts can help each other as they explore this new career path, all the while building professional relationships and BA skills. There will be an interactive and collective approach to the sessions where feedback and ideas will be used to determine the direction of the Trailblazer’s discussions as the series progresses.

The series will begin by having participants use business analysis techniques to review and create a resume or CV geared towards the business analysis job market.

5:30 to 5:45 pm - Check-in and introductions
5:45 to 6:45 pm - Facilitated discussion on resume building
