I am Nilesh from Pune.
My problem is as follows:
I am a bsc chemistry graduate and MBA Marketing and Systems post grad 2003 passout.
I have been switching jobs here and there due to inconvenience in high pressure sales jobs.The most i have worked for any company is in an inhouse marketing position in an equity advisory company.
I am showing 4 years experience on paper in this company. I want to switch permanently to non sales jobs.
Can you please advise me of any such courses where i can still climb the ladder and be successful in non sales profile. How about working as a analyst? Is it fine to change the domain at this juncture when I am 34.
Kindly let me know how about whether I can work as a Business Analyst or Market Research Analyst?
Kindly let me know if you can help me.
Thanks and Regards,

Hi Nilesh,

Change in career has no age bar. Only thing that you must be sure of yourself is that you need to be confident in what you do.

Don't give up just becoz of pressure to perform. I know certain companies just have target which is impossible to achieve. But if you have the right strategy to prove that they are unreasonable; by doing so you are actually performing an analyst job.

Course are good but at end if day, it matters how good you are with figures, market study and your own analysis. Knowbody can teach these to you but you yourself.

If you are inclined to inhouse jobs and your current salary is good, try evaluating the gaps in your organization. It my belief that a Good Sales team needs a good sales support personnel. If you can add value to your team members by your research and giving them leads sitting @ office, you can verywell create a position for yourself as "Business Coordinator" or call it analyst if you may want to. Good luck.


By the way, the above is just not saying, I am too a BSc Chem without MBA and currently working as Business Planning Analyst in KSA. nothing to boast about, but to give you hope that "where there is will, there is a way". So, good luck.
