Why Choose a Career as an Analyst?

There are many different industry sectors which employ the services of an analyst. Stock brokers and financial institutions utilise the skills of investment analysts while large corporations look to a business analyst to ensure the future prosperity of their companies. Data analysts are experts at harvesting and analysing information from a wide variety of sources, while an intelligence analyst deals with the collation and assessment of sensitive or secretly gathered intelligence. Salaries for the role vary across the industry sectors; for example a financial analyst can average ($59,000 US  per year while a business analyst can earn a little more with an average salary of $63,000 US.

An analyst working in any role within any industry sector is someone with an eye for detail; someone that always reads the small print and can pick up vital pieces of data in what can sometimes be a mountain of information. An analyst also needs to be able to have vision, extrapolate possibilities from gathered information and present that information to management or senior staff as and when required. Analysts are generally logical and organised thinkers able to work both using their own initiative and part of a larger team. No matter what the industry or how big the company the role of the analyst is vital.
