Business Intelligence Specialist Advice

Q: What do you wish you knew about your job when you first started out?

Business Intelligence Specialist in Arlington:
"Make Sure You Think About The Future."
If you like working fairly independently, this is a good job for you. Depending on where you work and who you work for, you can spend a lot of time alone with just your laptop. If you need more interaction, or need to be a part of the decision making process, this job won't always be for you. Especially, I find that the bigger the company, the more pigeon holed I get and the less visibility I have to the projects I would like to be involved in. Being persistent, proactive and organized go a long way with my job.
