Dec 23, 2021 · Toronto, Canada

WeCloudData is proud to announce our new five-part webinar series: “Becoming a Business Intelligence Professional (Analyst, Consultant, Developer, Engineer)”, featuring Program Director Eric Liu. Topics are centred around developing skills and building a successful career in the field of Business Intelligence (BI) and Data Analytics (DA). Join our workshops to learn from industry experts on how to accelerate your career in the rapidly growing market of BI-DA.

Pay Scale: BI Analyst $71,050, BI Consultant $81,341, BI Developer $84,043, BI Engineer $90,112. The job description is usually written out of context. For most people, it's hard to understand a job by reading its description.

Join Eric Liu, WeCloudData Program Director, to navigate the Business Intelligence career field. Zoom in from industry, to company, to function, to process, to various Business Intelligence roles - then zoom out and "see" yourself in the big picture: industry, company, function, process, roles = responsibilities + qualifications. Your ability to explain a job so well - even better than the job description - is a reliable indicator of your qualifications.

- Answers 3 questions at 3 levels: What happened? Why did it happen? - What can we do about it? Strategic, tactical, operational.
- Visualize value creation: business > data > insight > action > outcome.
