Business Intelligence Resume Writing Tips And Strategy?

Business Intelligence Resume Writing Tips

I think I understand the basics of resume writing in general, but what do you think are the main concerns of BI Analyst hiring managers? How best to speak to that interest or concern in a resume? Any tips, sample, strategy or summary, etc appreciated.

I think the best advice is to collect job descriptions from sites like SimplyHired and LInkedin. At Linkedin you can enter the key words "BI Analyst" and it will select all the jobs with those key words so you can see the variation in job descriptions. After than I would use your Linkedin Network to locate people working at those companies with the BI job post and see if they will talk with you via email at Linkedin.

If you use SimplyHired, allows you to add your Linkedin contacts to it so that you can see which of your connections are connected to the job post at that company.

This is the approach I have taken in the past and how others are taught to network for that same information you are asking for. The main this is to find a contact that will introduce you to the actual hiring manager once you have determined the job is a fit for you.
