“THERE ARE FIVE IMPORTANT THINGS FOR LIVING A SUCCESSFUL AND FULFILLING LIFE: NEVER STOP DREAMING, NEVER STOP BELIEVING, NEVER GIVE UP, NEVER STOP TRYING, AND NEVER STOP LEARNING.” ― ROY BENNETT

I have been working as a QA Analyst for about 3 years, doing testing, developing control methods, white box testing etc. A few days ago, I got an offer for a Business Analyst position from a large bank in Eastern Europe.
I relied heavily on your videos, book and prep course to allow me to really understand how to succeed in my business analyst interview. I am not only writing to thank you for your helpful information, but also explain my experience in interviewing for the position.
My first interview was just about getting to know me, my previous experiences and why I wanted to be a Business Analyst. I think they were trying to understand if I will be able to work in a team and also be independent. I gave examples of my best points and added several business analyst terms (like you explained in your workshop video and book).
They even asked if I had prior BA experience before because of the business analyst terms I was using. This gave me an opportunity to explain my interest in becoming a BA and why I wanted to be in the profession. Second interview was a bit tougher as they went into specific projects, conflict resolution and what I would do in certain scenarios. Luckily, I was prepared and answered them well with lots of good eye contact.
In my point of view, the interview process can be subjective and all you can do is prepare for it the best you can.
I have already donated to the Reeve Foundation; I think they are doing a great job.

video testimonial from benji:
Benji had experience as a Business Analyst but still couldn't land the job. He had the skills to do the job but didn't have the "interview skills" to get the job.
