When interviewing a candidate for a business analyst role, employers are looking to assess your analytical problem-solving skills as well as your communication and collaboration skills. Be prepared to analyze a business case study and answer behavioral questions that often test your ability to handle challenging stakeholders or tight deadlines. Business analysts must also be creative thinkers, so expect to tackle a few unusual brainteasers that are designed to see how well you can think through a complex problem.
What is the difference between a functional requirement and a system requirement?
A functional requirement is the what; a system requirement is the how.
A functional requirement is what the system should do. It is what function is wanted. Non functional is how that is achieved. It specifies how that system should work.
A functional requirement describes the observable behavior of a system. It describes how the work should be done. A system requirement describes the needs of the system (computer) to be able to use the software or hardware. Some examples of functional requirement are “user must be able to login to their account” “user must be able retrieve password”. Some examples of system requirements are “the system must be able to operate in windows and Mac operating systems”
