Hi my fellow fish! I'm thinking of pivoting for position as a QA analytist. Coming out of corporate finance role with a BA in business admin. Any advice on how to make that happen? Will taking few certifications in EDX/udemy be enough to get started?

I have seen some of my friends taking courses and certifications on udemy for an analyst position and that helps them a lot. Other than taking courses online, you might want to reach out to people with similar positions to dig deeper into what skillset you need in order to pursue an analyst role
