Heather Rose-Marie’s Answer

The term "business analysis" is very broad. This activity is done in all industries. Therefore, you need to do some self-assessments to determine what is your area of interest and what industry you would like to apply your skills. As you begin your self-assessment go to the International Institute of Business Analysis website and learn what you need to know to become a business analyst. They offer certifications and it might be a good idea to find a local chapter and begin networking with the current members.

Next, begin drafting a resume. Google "job descriptions for business analyst"
If you haven't done so already, create a profile on LinkedIn.com. LinkedIn is for professionals looking to promote their skills for employment.

Heather Rose-Marie recommends the following next steps:

Ian’s Answer

There are likely some avenues your school offers: a platform like Handshake or something similar that aggregates job posting, a careers office that can help give you direction, business or skill-based clubs that focus on job placement, an international students club, or alumni network platforms that allow you to connect with school alumni. I would recommend trying to have a conversation with someone who was in your shoes a few years ago that can offer perspective on what your path forward could look like.

Ashley’s Answer

You can find internships by going to the websites of companies you want to work for. You need to search 10–20 places/companies of that field of your interest/that are currently looking for interns in that field. You can also follow pages of companies on LinkedIn and see if they are looking for interns.
