The Career Center is available to IIBA Members and provides incredible value to job-seeking business analysis professionals. Members are able to post multiple resumes and cover letters or choose a career profile that leads employers directly to them. Industry certifications can be highlighted to boost appeal to employers. Alongside the Career Center The Business Analysis Competency Model® tool is also a great guide for developing a training plan for advancing business analysis competencies. It is something worthwhile to use in tandem with the Career Center to fully enhance your business analysis career journey.
The Career Center provides multiple opportunities to bring jobs directly to job seekers by providing a platform for uploading public resumes and utilizing job alerts.
What does a public resume mean?
When a resume is set as public, employers have the ability to view the candidate’s resume. When they are interested in reaching out to the candidate, the employer completes a contact request form. If the candidate is interested in the company, their contact information is released to the employer. If not, they reject the request which keeps the anonymity of the candidate.
Utilizing Job Alerts
Job Alerts also assist in making job searching convenient and accommodating to business analysis professionals’ busy schedules. When set up, job seekers receive an email every time a job becomes available that matches their desired interests and locations. Job-seeking IIBA members are also free to search the jobs database with robust filters to focus on the specific interests. Along with seamless searching for jobs, members also have access to IIBA Career Center career resources. They can access resume writing tips, interview tips, sample resumes, answers to experts’ frequently asked questions, and more.
IIBA Career Center provides many benefits to employers in order to help them recruit the top business analysis professionals for their organizations. Employers are able to include their open positions in a semi-monthly email sent to all of IIBA’s members and job seekers, allowing them to reach both active and passive job seekers by putting open jobs directly in the inboxes of qualified IIBA members. Along with giving an avenue for members to find their perfect job, employers are also able to search the anonymous resume bank of qualified candidates. This puts the employer in control of finding quality talent as opposed to waiting for quality talent to find them.
“Providing our members with opportunities for professional development and career growth are core to our mission to serve the business analysis profession,” said Jared Gorai, Director of Chapter & Member Engagement at IIBA. “Our members are highly appealing to employers because they’ve demonstrated a commitment to the highest levels of integrity and training. YM Careers’ technology and sales support will ensure that our website serves our members by providing a clear connection with organizations/employers that value and seek their business analysis skills, expertise and certifications they have to offer.”
