I’ve been doing this for over a decade now, and you can’t blame me for being a bit cynical, but I do believe that business skills and experience are definitely worth the price of a college degree.
I was thinking about this while I was writing this. I’m not sure how many business analysts are paid, but I’m guessing a decent amount that doesn’t include student debt, or if they’re making much more than the average college student.
The fact is that most of us are only going to be working as part of the company’s staff, and most of the time we dont get paid much.
In general, it looks like there is a lot of demand for business analysts, but there’s also a great demand for college students. The thing is that many of the companies that employ business analysts only hire college kids because they don’t have the experience. If you’re going to be a business analyst, your experience should be far in excess of your age.
Of course, the same goes for any other field where you can get paid a lot of money. In general, the salary range for business analysts is between $29,000 and $41,500 per year, depending on experience. Most of the students that do want to work for a company think their company will pay them more, but that’s not usually the case.
This is why most people are so surprised when they hear about the salaries for business analysts. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the average salary for an office worker with a college degree is $42,000. That is just a little higher than the average salary for a bartender. With an average salary of $42,000 per year, it really isnt that hard to get a job as a business analyst.
Just because you’re on a company’s payroll doesn’t mean you can’t find a job. Just because you think your way is good doesn’t mean you can’t get ahead. So that’s why you may not be able to find a job, but at least you have the chance to do it. If you think that life is too hard to pay your way, then you need to find a job.
The truth is that most companies arent built for people with business experience. It often comes down to the lack of a strong passion, drive, or desire to succeed. Although I dont think this applies to most of the companies Ive worked for, I think that this is the number one reason why youre unlikely to find a job as a business analyst. There arent many people with that drive, passion, or desire to succeed.
A part of being a business analyst means some people just don’t ever want to work. If it turns out to be true, you might just be able to get a job, and you will have a job that is a far better fit for every individual’s needs than a bad job on a bad day.
