[Rescheduled] 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 second in the series will have participants practice interview techniques in mock interviews with a focus on their business analysis skillset. Come prepared to answer BA-focused questions you might get asked at a job interview (eg., When are you done with requirements? Describe a time where you had to deal with a difficult stakeholder?) AND get feedback on your answers from certified Business Analysts to help you along the way!
