Exceed expectations.

Successful business analysts have strong time management skills. So, on your resume, be sure to show off how you have juggled multiple assignments, tasks, or any other projects while hitting—or better yet, beating— work deadlines and deliverables.

Use numbers.

Because you work with data, it should be easy for you to get specific with numbers on your resume. Quantify any resume-worthy achievements that you can. By providing data, you’ll leave a stronger impression than you would with a vague statement.

Tailor your resume to applicant tracking systems.

While you might think your resume is going straight to a pair of human eyes, it’s often first seen by an applicant tracking system, an automated computer program that scans your resume for keywords and weeds out unqualified applicants. If you haven’t been having luck with your resume, even if you’ve followed the tips above, this could be why—and it’s time to make a few keyword tweaks.
