As the name suggests employers will be searching for individuals with analytical skills. A business analyst CV should be centered on research skills, report writing skills, analytical skills and problem solving skills. Before embarking on the compilation of the CV, find out more about the company and the type of services they offer their clients.
If you have skills or experience that is related to these services, ensure you emphasize them early in your CV e.g. in your career objective, or listing your professional experience and responsibilities in the earlier part of the CV. You should also find out about their clientele if you are applying to a firm that carries out business analysis for other organizations. If you already have experience with the same client or similar clients, mention this in you business analyst CV.
