A Public Apology

I just received a comment about this blog that I will like to share with you.

I wrote a long, praiseworthy and complimentary comment on your procrastination
article only to lose it all when I found out that I had to register just to post

You make it too difficult to comment and to contribute and it's especially
disappointing after taking 10-minutes to compose a good comment.

You add a barrier to entry and I don't see the value of it. It's really turned
me off of visiting your site again – even though you have good content

Why Johnny Can’t Get A Job

Did you learn an information technology skill but can’t seem to find a job?

If you are looking for a job now or will be in the market for a new job soon, you’ve got to read the rest of what’s on this article.

Are You Getting Job Offers?

Marketers know to do market research before promoting a product or bringing it to the market. This is because the time and money that may be lost by investing in a product that no-one wants to buy can be saved by doing some inexpensive market research.

How To Find IT Jobs

One life skill that strikes fear into the hearts of business analysts and computer programmers alike is sales and marketing skills.

Looking For A Job Is A Sales And Marketing Process

For too long, technical professionals have assumed that sales and marketing is something you need if you’re a sales rep for a pharmaceutical company, a used car salesperson, real estate agent, a marketing executive or someone else in a non-technical job.

This assumption is so seriously flawed ? nothing could be farther from the truth. Every time you look for a job, email your resume to a hiring manager, interview for a job or negotiate your salary or bill rate, you are performing sales and marketing tasks.

A One Minute Prayer For A Wounded Soldier

Robert Phillips on his CyberCa$hology blog just announced that Jim Edward’s son-in-law serving our country in Iraq has been injured by a roadside bomb.

I got to know Jim Edwards through his ebooks on internet marketing which I bought about 2 years ago.

Now, I don’t care whether you agree or disagree with what’s happening in the world and the US military’s involvement in Iraq. However, I do care about people and I hope you do as well.

So, please join me right now in saying a ONE MINUTE PRAYER FOR JIM EDWARD’S SON-IN-LAW.

Business Analyst Interview Questions

Now that how to become a business analyst book is released, I’m also releasing the business analyst interview questions book and here is the reason why.

It’s Proven Difficult to Prepare for Business Analyst Job Interviews

Presently, it’s challenging to study for business analyst interviews because job boards, job descriptions, hiring managers and human resources (hr) specialists are not consistent in what they are looking for in a business analyst.

While some emphasize communication skills, others emphasize leadership skills in business analyst job postings.

While some business analyst job openings emphasize requirements gathering, analysis and documentation, others emphasize software development skills, reporting skills or data analysis skills.

The Business Analyst Book

The business analyst career is one of the most misunderstood professions in the information technology or software development industry.

The majority of software development professionals who understand the network administrator, database administrator, web developer, computer programmer, IT manager or IT director’s role fail at understanding or appreciating the roles, responsibilities and career opportunities available to business analysts.

The Ultimate Guide to Careers and Jobs for Business Analysts solves this problem by opening wide the doors to success in business analyst careers and jobs.
