Questions for Reporting Analysts
Posted on 2013-06-13
To the BI and reporting analysts and those that perform similiar roles,
I'm thinking about applying for a reporting/business analyst role in my department. This is going to be a new position in the department. The details of the job have yet to be announced; from what my manager has told me, the duties are to collaborate with the other teams in the department to create databases, dashboards, run reports, analyze, gather trends, present executive reports...
How should I approach the position to help the hiring manager understand that while one person to start maybe fine but ultimately what they are wanting to do with the reporting system requires several developers and offering competitive salaries? I'm concerned that I will experience a similiar challenge at my previous employer where the 1 developer was doing a lot of unpaid overtime because there were so many requests be made and the expectation was, "Can you have that done now?"
