Becoming a systems analysis


I have a degree in Business Information Systems and I am looking in to becoming a systems analysis. My question is where do you start? Which big firms should I look at to start as a trainee? Any information you can give me would be much appreciated.

Thank you.

Cheers, Richie


I'll try to reply although your question is quite broad, depending on circumstances.

1. With your degree in Business Information Systems you could be of value to either a business that offers consulting services or to a corporation that also sells products.

2. For Consulting Services check out: Ernst & Young/Cap Gemini or Andersen Consulting, they've just changed their name to Accenture. Their respective Web sites may contain data on entry-level training positions. Also, do a Web search using the key word "Consulting." You'll get thousands of hits.

3. For product companies, check:

* Computer Associates


* Microsoft

* Veritas

Check their job pages for postings.

4. And finally, the school from which you received your degree may have a Placement Office that may be of potential assistance.

Good luck to you and know that economic times are a little more challenging right now so be persistent.
