Find the next step in your business analyst career
At Bridging the Gap, we’ve been helping professionals like you start careers in business analysis since 2009. Unlike other training companies that cater to multiple professions and career levels, when you are here, no question is too basic and no challenge is too trivial.
The course designer, Laura Brandenburg, CBAP, is a best-selling author and internationally-recognized leader known for helping mid-career professionals start business analyst careers.
Laura brings more than a decade of experience in the business analysis profession, filling such diverse roles as full-time business analyst, consultant, and hiring manager. She incorporates all of these perspectives into her writing, presenting, coaching, and training to help you find your transferable skills, expand your business analysis experience, and start your business analysis career with confidence.
Here’s a sampling of what you’ll learn about when you download the course:
- How to create a virtuous cycle and expand your business analysis experiences, regardless of your role or title.
- How to decide what kinds of job roles to focus on in the short term so you can increase your income sooner rather than later.
- How to fill business analyst competency gaps and qualify yourself for a broader set of business analyst job roles.
The course is available as a 43-minute mp3 audio file so you can download it and listen in the car or the gym. There is also a full-text 28-page transcript if audio is not your favorite way to learn, or if you want to refer back to the course to follow-up on a point.
Read. Listen. Or read and listen.
It’s up to you.
Along with the course, you’ll receive a planning guidebook. Let’s look at how you can use it to get moving towards your business analyst career goals.
Customize your approach with a step-by-step planning guide
While the course walks you through what your options are, we want to make sure you know exactly what to do next. So we’ve put together custom planning guides to walk you through our career planning process.
- If you are currently employed in an office setting, you’ll figure out how to make the most of your current job and move towards or accelerate your business analyst career.
- If you are currently unemployed or employed outside an office setting, you’ll figure out your short-term career options, how to optimize your job search, and where to focus on expanding your skills and experience.
This is a scenario where a little bit of planning goes a long way to creating positive momentum. You’ll leave with clarity about your next step and see opportunities you may have been overlooking.
Keep your momentum going with insider tips and how tos
After you receive the Start Your BA Career free course, you’ll continue to hear from Laura regularly with additional insider tips you can apply to get more out of your business analysis career without taking too much of your time.
You’ll also receive links to new Bridging the Gap content so you won’t miss a thing.
Thank you very much…you have helped a lowly customer service agent (with 25+ years of experience) realize that my skill set and knowledge are worth so much more.
I just want to say how amazingly positive you and your blogs are! It’s so inspirational! And exactly what I was looking for!
I am actually an experienced BSA (not transitioning to the role)…I have found the newsletters/articles to be very informative. In some cases, just as a reinforcement of something that I have learned previously, or in many cases, providing me with new information or tools to improve my BA knowledge and skills. Overall, I think the information that you are providing is invaluable.
