“Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see a shadow.” — Helen Keller
I am so excited to tell you that I landed the job offer just the next day I was interviewed!….thanks to your informative sessions and the structured answers about how to prepare for the Business Analyst Interview.
I will be starting at Wells Fargo in my new role as a Business Systems Consultant and will be meeting my manager next week.
My interview lasted for some 45 minutes. The interviewer started with explaining the projects she was handling and what her team was responsible for.
She mainly talked about taking care of Compliance related system functionalities within the bank. It was as if she was trying to say that like all other banks they too had to comply with the rules and regulations and suddenly there were some unexpected changes they had to work it out to implement them without any delays.
Then she moved on to asking me the warming question..”Tell me about yourself” to which thanks to your help I was well prepared. Due to this, I started my interview on a strong note and everything else began falling in place.
After that she asked me interview questions that tested my skills and reaction to those situations. I felt my answers satisfied her most of the time.
Finally, the interviewer asked me “Tell me about yourself as a person.” Honestly speaking I had not expected this question as it was extremely personality based.
However, I spoke about my strengths and how I use my strengths to allow me to add value in the workplace. I also spoke about my other extracurricular activities.
Overall, it was frustrating preparing for the interview – but your preparation materials, articles and success stories have all been instrumental in my success.
Thanks for everything!
p.s I have also attached my Job Responsibilities for your reference (I hope it helps others in their journey to obtaining a Business Analyst position):
This is absolutely fantastic news! rock on!
Congratulations on your offer, very well deserved. I am glad that I have been of some help.
Now that you have secured your position, you need to be prepare yourself for the role. I would look through the job description and familiarize yourself with key asks. For example, if creating functional specification documents and being the lead in meetings is an important ask – then start by researching how to make better f-specs and how to lead effective meetings.
All the best,
