Business Analyst Interview Questions-Help plz!

Hi, I am applying for a business analyst role at a Insurance company . I have an interview coming up and to be honest, I am not sure what to expect from the interview because it seems a business analyst's description is not consistent from job post to job post. I am assuming it's more in line with what a systems analyst would be doing i.e. Requirments gathering, designing documents, doing some quality assurance tasks, etc. I've seen the same same questions asked by "frogpad" in the earlier threads, So it'd be really great if u c'd tell what questions were asked? Obviously anything is fair game, but what are some common things that I can expect? I appreciate your feedback. Thanks.

Hi,

First see the following PAQ carefully, look at "jimhorn's" comment. May be the question is on IT Business Analyst, but I think it's helpful for any type of Business Analyst. http://www.experts-exchange.com/Miscellaneous/Q_21611059.html

The best way to prepare for an interview is to study yourself thoroughly.

THEN study the companies and know a little about them.

When they ask you questions about your expierence with such and such...you should recall a similar event that translates into reusable experience.

http://www.interviewmastery.com, monster.com and careerbuilder.com have good preparation techniques.

Lastly, to specifically answer your systems analyst question..Organize your experience:
Phase 1 - Systems Planning
Phase 2 - Systems Analysis
  A)  Determine Requirements
  B)  Conduct End-User/Management Interviews
  C)  Do some Fact-finding
  D)  How do you organize your results?
Phase 3 - Systems Design
Phase 4 - Systems Implementation
Phase 5 - Systems Operation and Support

Group your experience similarly and detail your experience.  You shouldn't have to memorize because you've lived it!
